Welcome new manager

Well where do I start! I’m so excited to be the new manager of the Lightning Ridge Visitor Information centre. I look forward to promoting our wonderful town and all it has to offer.

With help from Lori we have created an Official Lightning Ridge Tourism Facebook page. We will be promoting accommodation, attractions, places to eat, up-coming events and everything else Lightning Ridge related.

Our username is facebook.com/lightningridgetourism

This week I would like to tell you about a happy customer story. Lori received an enquiry from some people wanting to get some information about Lightning Ridge sent to the UK. An information pack was made up and sent off. On June 9 we had a visit from a Mr and Mrs Smith from the UK, they had received an information pack from Lori and decided to make the trip to Australia to see Lightning Ridge.

Our quote of the week is from Mr and Mrs Smith.

Quote of the week: ‘A dream achieved! Wow what a place and some fabulous people Thank You Lori -Visitors from the UK, duration of stay 5 days.

Save the Date: Naidoc Week is fast approaching. There are activities being held in Lightning Ridge and Walgett.

I would personally to thank Lori for the wonderful job she has done over the past two years. She will be dearly missed by the board and the team of invaluable volunteers. Good luck with your new adventure.
