EVER moved or visited a new place and wished all relevant information information for this location could be found in one handy spot?
New residents to Leeton shire will have access to just that when they move here, or even before they decide to come, thanks to a new initiative.
Leeton Shire Council's communications co-ordinator Monica Armanini has put together a new information kit for those who have moved to town.
Perhaps they don't know where to start? Or maybe someone is looking to move here - the kit will be the ideal resource to promote the shire and cover all the bases.
Its aim is to provide new residents with an introduction to services, facilities and places in the shire.
"The kit contains information such as aged and disability services, emergency services, medical facilities, education providers, family services, sporting and recreational activities, religious organisations, general businesses, council property services and more," Mrs Armanini said.
The kit will be reviewed internally at least once a year by council's community services team to ensure the document is kept current and relevant.
Feedback from the community is also encouraged.
The resource will also be available online on council's website. Printed copies for reading will be at the library, the Leeton Visitors Information Centre, the Leeton Multipurpose Centre and the council administration building.
"Leeton shire offers a rich heritage, diverse agricultural production and manufacturing, quality health, education and sporting services, affordable housing, strong community spirit and much more," mayor Paul Maytom said.
"Council hopes the information contained in the kit provides all newcomers with an introduction to services, facilities and places in the shire, assisting them to feel welcome and settle in smoothly."
