On the 19th September 2017, 18 women from the region participated in a “Bus-about in your own backyard tour”, visiting four local businesses from Dalwallinu to Watheroo. Funded by the Grants for Women Program, an initiative from the Government of Western Australia Department of Local Government and Communities, this tour provided local women an opportunity to be inspired and learn from diverse and innovative businesses in their own backyard.
The Liebe Group would like to thank Cathy Northover, Liz Brennan, Rhonda Tonkin and Robyn Cousins for taking the time to present to the group and share their unique stories; with a little bit of initiative and passion, anything is achievable. Thank you also to Clare Johnston, Elders Scholz Rural for driving the bus and to Holly Staton, Liebe Group Women’s Committee Member for helping plan the day and for providing a wonderful afternoon tea to end the tour.
The tour was a great success and gave the participants a chance to learn from leading and inspirational women in our area.
