Canterbury Council and Cobar Shire Council staff last week came together to participate in four constructive team activities.
Cobar Shire Council’s special projects officer Angela Shepherd said staff from the two councils participated in a range of activities on Thursday morning in Cobar designed to build skills and confidence.
“We went over to the Youthie and toured it and played a couple of games over there to give the group a feel of the facilities, to see what the centre is like and to see what we can do.
“Then we came back to the council to do a marketing plan to look at how we can market the centre, how we can brand the centre and how to increase the usage by the community,” Ms Shepherd said.
Other activities included designing a master plan of Drummond Park and an analysis of Cobar Shire Council’s website.
The sister city visitors were also shown around Cobar during stay.
“Over the time the Canterbury officers were here we shared a lot of information between the two councils,” Ms Shepherd said.
“They brought a librarian to spend sometime with our library manager Jane Siermans and they talked about what resources they can share.
“We have been doing exchanges and information sharing since 2007 when we established our sister city relationship,” Ms Shepherd said.
