We’re on Facebook!!! Shelby Mannion has started up a What’s On In White Cliffs Facebook page and we’ve added a Google calendar to help keep track of things. Just contact Shelby or Randel or leave a visitor’s post if you want something included.

Churchill Fellowships Information Session
Every year more than 100 Australians are awarded a Churchill Fellowship so they can bring their ideas to life. This prestigious yet accessible award enables recipients to travel independently overseas, for four to eight weeks, so they can meet with leaders in their chosen field of endeavour to gain and exchange knowledge and experience. No prescribed qualifications are required to apply and the scope of projects people can propose is limitless, providing the applicant demonstrates a willingness to share the knowledge gained and there are evident benefits to their wider community, industry or profession.
