Future in doubt for Newcastle Road Transport Awareness Day
Flashback to the 2013 Newcastle & Hunter Region Road Transport Awareness Day

 

This year is set to mark the 21st year of the annual Newcastle & Hunter Road Transport Awareness Day.

Unfortunately, at the Awareness Day group's annual general meeting on July 1, it failed to attract a new committee, thus leaving the future of the event in doubt.

According to the group's treasurer Lynne Jack, who was voted 2014 Industry Woman of the Year at the National Trucking Industry Awards in June, the Awareness Day needs committed, enthusiastic people to form a committee.

"This is your event to promote the industry and offers an opportunity to enjoy a day with industry people."

Another attempt to form a committee will be held on Tuesday, July 15 at the Hexham Bowling Club at 6pm. The agenda will include to seek nominations and elect a committee, and discuss future options for the event.

During its history, the Newcastle & Hunter Road Transport Awareness Day has raised much needed funds for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

For further information contact vice chairman Mark Abell on 0411 279 716, Lynne Jack on 0417 758 851 or truck entry co-ordinator Mick Barclay on 0419 253 080.
