Tararua Rural Support Trust Cyclone Recovery Expo

13 November 2023

A few hours off farm, checking in with rural providers and a trailer load of fencing materials are just some of the excellent reasons for cyclone impacted farmers to register for Tararua Rural Support Trust’s, Cyclone Recovery Expo at the Dannevirke A&P Showgrounds, on Thursday November 30th from 9am.

Using community donations to East Coast Rural Support Trust, Tararua Rural Support Trust Coordinator Jane Tylee and her team wanted to ensure Tararua farmers are able to receive the support they need to help lighten the load just a little bit, in difficult times.

“We are hopeful that as many of our cyclone impacted Tararua farmers as possible will register for the Expo, take a few hours off farm to make sure they are getting the help they need, connect with other famers in a similar position, and of course, pick up a load of free fencing materials and goodie bag,” says Tylee.

Registrations of interest are critical for the logistics of the day and also to give farmers some flexibility in their arrival times. “Farmers need to register their interest online and nominate a time between 9am and 1pm that suits them to arrive, we will do our very best to accommodate those requests, we know it’s a busy time of year” notes Tylee. Registrations will close on Monday November 20th.

The day will be more than just supporting farmers with free fencing materials. Once loaded farmers will enjoy free food and a cuppa as they wander through the Expo and catch up with the Rural Support Trust team, rural professionals, agricultural industry experts, health and well-being providers and more.

Farmers will also each take home a goodie bag, full of treats and pick me ups and everyone that registers will go in the draw to win a Weber Q Family BBQ thanks to Tararua Rural Support Trust.

Registrations will close on Monday 20th November. Trailers and tie downs are also essential.  For any queries farmers can email Nicky Allomes at Tararua Rural Support Trust on nicky.allomes@ruralsupport.org.nz
