■ Min­deroo Foundation chief ex­ec­u­tive Ni­cola For­rest has ex­pressed her de­sire to see the re­turn of some of Onslow’s favourite events of days gone by, and to see new ideas spring up to im­prove com­mu­nity sat­is­fac­tion.

Talk­ing up Min­deroo Sta­tion’s prized bulls in Kar­ratha re­cently, Mrs For­rest said she would like to see them used in ex­ist­ing and new events in the re­gion.

“We def­i­nitely want to see more events be­ing de­vel­oped, in­clud­ing more camp drafts,” she said.

“We would love to see the Onslow races re­de­vel­oped.

“It’s cer­tainly some­thing we would en­cour­age. There are busi­nesses here that want to help build ca­pac­ity for their work­force.

“They want to cre­ate events that make peo­ple want to live here, so I think it’s up to the com­mu­ni­ties to try and (drive that).”

Mrs For­rest said there was po­ten­tial for Min­deroo and other lo­cal busi­nesses to spon­sor new events in and around Onslow.
