Wauchope Spring Twilight Market is in Bain Park on Saturday September 29, from 3pm to 8pm.  Meet family and friends for a bit to eat, fun for the kids, and a relaxing evening stroll in the park and explore the market stalls.

Then on October 15, there will be a Small Business Expo, offering a showcase of the Chamber’s role. 

The event, at Wauchope Country Club from 6 to 9pm, will bring together business owners and decision-makers to build new business relationships.

The Motorcycle Friendly Town subcommittee is busy making preparations for the 2018 Motofest. 

Riders from across the country will descend on Wauchope Showground on Saturday November 17, from 8am to 4pm.

The Wauchope Chamber of Commerce and Industry have welcomed a new subcommittee to the fold.

Creative Wauchope will continue to develop ideas and initiatives to foster arts industries in the area, encourage visitors to town and highlight Wauchope and surrounds as a Creative Hub. The Creative Wauchope Festival is planned again for 2019. 

The Wauchope Heritage Riverwalk will soon take shape.  The chamber and the Wauchope and District Historical Society succeeded in getting a $93,000 NSW Heritage Near Me Grant.

This kick-starts the project with art installations, signage and lighting to enhance the Wauchope Riverside and share our history with locals and visitors.

The Chamber already has a number of volunteers working on projects to tidy up gardens and nature areas in the CBD. 

Working with the council’s volunteer program, they have worked on the strip garden and car park in Rocks Ferry, and cleaned up the car park near the Hastings Hotel.
