CWA MASK UP DUNGOG!

Congratulations to our Country Women’s Association (CWA), Boomerang Bags and the Wednesday Sewing Ladies for their inspiring initiative ‘Mask Up Dungog!’

This campaign to produce locally made face masks for visitors and locals ($5 each) in response to the recent appearance of COVID-19 in the Hunter region represents the ingenuity, talent and resourcefulness of our local community, who come together in times of crisis for the greater good.

 

BRIG O’JOHNSTON BRIDGE ALTERNATIVE ROUTE

Following recent advice from Transport for NSW regarding changed traffic conditions and restrictions to load limits on Brig O’Johnston bridge, please be advised that East Seaham Road can be used by local farmers and residents as an alternative access route.

There are no load limits on East Seaham Road, so any general access vehicles are able to travel via this route.
