COLYTON WELCOME TOUR

On Saturday 29th October Team Colyton took 30 newly arrived refugees around Colyton & St Marys to display the great community we have! Local residents of Colyton, with the use of translators, displayed our schools, churches, shops, parks and other amenities during a one hour bus tour and then closed the afternoon at Barr & Bass Reserve in Colyton sharing stories & lunch. A refugee who had been in Australia for 9 days said a local Colyton resident on the tour was her first Australia she had spoken too!
Thank you to Team Colyton, Community Junction Inc, Penrith City Council Neighbourhood Renewal, Settlement Services International, Ethnic Community Services Co-operative, Nepean Multicultural Access Inc, Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District and our volunteer bus drivers Ted and John for making this tour a success.
