Services day attracts 600 people
More than 600 people attended the Peninsula Link Services Day held on Thursday, May 17, at the Peninsula Community Centre in Woy Woy.
With an objective to link locals with services in their community, the Peninsula Link Expo provided residents of Ettalong, Umina and Woy Woy with a chance to meet a range of local service providers and to find out more about what they had to offer.
Open to the public free of charge, the event also offered live music and dancing, children's entertainment, lucky door prizes, massages and a free lunch.
One stallholder was the Jobfind Centre at Ettalong
"Our attendance was definitely worthwhile for both Jobfind and the community", said manager Ms Jacqui McKenzie.
"We were asked a ton of questions regarding our services and employment opportunities in the area, and we were able to build even more relationships with local service providers to ensure we are able to offer the best advice and service to our job seekers.
"Quite a few job seekers from our Ettalong centre also took advantage of the day, with one of our long-term job seekers even volunteering to assist us with traffic control."
Other services providers on show at the event include the Department of Family and Community Services, the Department of Human Services, Mingaletta Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporation, St Vincent de Paul Society and Mary Mac's Place.
