Bellingen produce showcased for all

PRODUCTS grown and produced in Bellingen will soon be on show for all to see, thanks to a local group's initiative to showcase what the region has to offer.

The Waterfall Way Development Group (WWD Group) consists of business, arts, events and environmental organisations that are keen to highlight locally produced works and enterprises in a new showcase, the Waterfall Way Centre.

A spokesperson for the WWD Group said one of the aims of the Centre is to provide support for community enterprises, from festivals and events to creative innovations in manufacturing, hospitality and retail.

“The Waterfall Way Centre is being realised for the benefit of residents, for our economic and cultural wellbeing,” the spokesperson said.

If you've got a handmade or home-grown product developed in the Bellinger-Waterfall Way region, contact for details of how to be a part of the centre.
