R U OK? Brekkie to bring together Tradies, Businesses, State and Local Government
Posted on: 23.08.2022
Local tradies can enjoy a free breakfast, find out more about health and wellbeing, and celebrate their contribution to the region’s economy for R U OK? Day this year.
The R U OK? Tradies’ Brekkie will be hosted by Wollondilly Shire Council, Picton Chamber of Commerce, Wingecarribee Shire Council and the Office of Nathaniel Smith, MP and will run from 5am to 9am on Thursday 8 September at Victoria Park, Menangle Street, Picton.
This is an opportunity for tradies to catch up with each other as well as local businesses, councils and State Government, and to link into services such as the Service NSW Business Concierge.
Mayor Matt Gould said, “The construction industry is the largest employer in Wollondilly, so this is a great opportunity to acknowledge the tradies and their input into our region’s economy.”
“As part of R U OK? Day we want to make sure everyone has the resources they need to stay healthy and have those important conversations with their mates; so we will have information available at the breakfast about some of the health and wellbeing services that are available.”
President of the Picton Chamber of Commerce Jo-Anne Bentley said that the Chamber was delighted to be part of the Tradies’ Brekkie.
“Our Wollondilly tradies and their families are a core part of our local economy and our community, and we are honoured to be able to acknowledge their massive contribution to our region by participating in this event.”
“On behalf of not only our members, but all Wollondilly businesses we want to say a big thank you.”
Member for Wollondilly, Nathaniel Smith, said, “Beyond their professional lives, many of our tradies volunteer in the RFS, SES, sporting groups and men’s sheds. Our local tradies are a valued and vital part of our community, and I look forward to the opportunity of having a chat and thanking them personally for their contribution to Wollondilly.”
Damian Tudehope, MP, Minister for Finance and Employee Relations and Victor Dominello, MP, Minister for Customer Service & Digital Government, Minister for Small Business and Minister for Fair Trading will be attending on the day.
