2015 NSW Rural Women's Gathering @ Glen Innes

NSW Rural Women's Gathering

Gather in the Glen: Women for all seasons, 9, 10 & 11 October 2015

Glen Innes in the Northern Tablelands is famous for a few reasons: beautiful scenery, livestock production, Celtic heritage, and winters worthy of log fires. In 2015 you'll be hearing more and more about the area, as the town prepares to host the 2015 NSW Rural Women's Gathering  entitled "Gather in the Glen".
The Glen Innes community is thrilled with the opportunity to showcase the area, and the Gathering committee is already hard at work developing a program that will offer both locals and guests a fun, informative, and inspiring gathering. 
For regular updates visit the Gather in the Glen website or like Gather in the Glen on Facebook.


Do You Have a Story To Share?

We are developing a TV documentary series for the ABC  in which we help people to locate and thank a person who once did them a good turn and made a difference to their life. 

It may be someone who helped them at a time when they were broke, or low or in trouble – or someone who literally saved their life in some way.   It might be that the event happened 5 years ago or 50. 

But the point is that there is unfinished business – they want to find that person and thank them for what they did. 

We are also seeking people who feel regret at something they have done to someone and who want to apologise to them but don’t know how to find them.  It might be a lost relationship that they feel bad about, someone they bullied or gave a hard time to, or someone they cheated or robbed.  Whatever it is, it has remained on their conscience and they want to make amends. 

The stories will be as different as the individuals who experienced them, but they will all be life-changing for the people involved – and hopefully they will come from all parts of Australia.

Or perhaps someone has failed to return something important  that doesn't belong to them and they no longer know how to go about it.

The important thing is that none of the people concerned have yet been able to trace or speak to the person from their past,  and they are keen for us to help them.   

 I would love to have some rural stories as part of this series.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need any more information.   And thank you for your help.  I really appreciate it.
