    The Wauchope Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc are beyond excited that the 2017 Moto Fest Wauchope is on tomorrow, Sat 18th November at the Wauchope Showground. 

    The work of the wonderful people on the Motorcycle Friendly Wauchope Committee, a sub-committee of the Chamber, are to be commended on the tireless efforts to bring the Moto Fest event about.  A Special mention goes out to Jenny Pursehouse, Coordinator of the sub-committee and the Moto Fest event for her contributions.

    Moto Fest celebrates the one year Anniversary of the announcement of Wauchope as a Motorcycle Friendly Town, and what a great job the Wauchope community and local business have done in welcoming riders.

    The AGM was proceeded by a fun 'Interview with the Mayor' with many laughs around the room and a few more serious local issues covered. 

    So what was the Mayor's first job? She was a Medical receptionist in a doctor's office based in Sydney. Mayor Pinson had a number of insights to share including concepts of "Love it or leave it", "When things aren't right let it go" and don't be afraid to use your voice on issues you are passionate about. She also shared her enthusiasm for the promising future for the Wauchope and surrounding areas.
