Forbes welcomes new residents at community function

Members of the Forbes community have welcomed 24 new residents at an event on Thursday evening.

The Welcome to Forbes event hosted by Forbes Shire Council gave new residents a chance to get to know a little bit more about the community, meet the councillors and local organisations.

Forbes Shire Council's Events Officer Jolene Jones said the event went really well and was really well attended.

Ms Jones said it was good to see a range of people move to Forbes from young families to retirees and take part in this event.

The Council's welcome to Forbes event was hosted at the Forbes Sport and Recreation Club, and was described as being a great location to welcome new people to Forbes.

Ms Jones said they had good views of Lake Forbes from the Sport and Recreation Club's deck and were able to watch the Dragon Boat Club go by in their boats.

Ms Jones said they would like to thank members of the Forbes Community Gardens for also providing lavender plants to all new residents who attended the event.

The next Welcome to Forbes event is planned to take place next May.
