  • If you are heading west today, drop into the Wauchope TAFE in Young Street from 11am, to take time out and relax, meet other community members, get a massage or learn how to make a stress ball. They'll also have games, music, a barbecue, an Aboriginal Art display and plant sale, so come over, take a break in your busy day and say 'hi'!
