This week on The Local Update Graham Farram has found a story published in the ‘Old Bulletin Reader’ at the turn of the last century. This piece by John Haynes and J.F Archibald is relatable in this Covid-19 lockdown as everyone involved is feeling poorly. He also tells us about a German wagon, which is now stored in the Bega Pioneers Museum.
In the second half of the episode We catch up with Cayce Hill from the Bega Multicultural Centre. In these #Iso times Cayce and her team are working to connect our community in an online environment. She tells me remoteness can be very difficult as a migrant, particularly if you arrive in the community on your own and not knowing anyone. Surprisingly, that circumstance is more common than you might expect.
If you’d like to learn more about the Bega Multicultural Centre there’s lots of info on the facebook page above. You can always reach out to Cayce by email too.
The Bega Multicultural Centre is currently seeking expressions of interest for which languages from around the world you might like to learn with their assistance. Cayce also suggests, if you think you could teach us anything from Aussie Slang to Swahili, they’d like to know about it.
