Thames Coromandel Mayor Sandra Goudie shared details about a joint venture with Brian Gentil today.
Neighbouring councils, the Hauraki Maori Trust Board and other groups are joining forces to help local businesses and to grow employment opportunities at a business expo.
High school students (Y11-13) from around all three districts, job seekers and businesses will be coming together at the Thames Civic Centre for two days to see what employment opportunities may be available and to network.
Thames Coromandel District Council will be supporting local food producers marketing the Coromandel as a foodie destination for domestic tourism, and promoting homegrown and local at the Food Show which has been rescheduled for November 19 – 22 from its usual July date due to the lockdown.
Good luck to all the producers going to the Food Show - where around 28,0000 members of the public attend over the four day event.
Brian Gentil asked Mayor Sandra about consultation that’s just opened for public feedback. Mayor Sandra said she encourages people to engage with the Draft Open Space and Community Facilities Strategy and feedback their views to council.
The consultation opened last Friday and runs till 17 July.
This is about getting a consistent approach across the district as to how we manage our open spaces (parks and reserves) and our community facilities.
“The more we can do to support people to be active and to be engaged the better,” the Mayor said.
