Community – Hilton Barnett

The aim of We Are White River is to in a small way help to build a resilient community. We want to focus on 3 parts of resilience: social, economic and environmental. Everything we do revolves around those 3 things and we hope that the growing support of active individuals, businesses and community organisations will get us there.

Writing this blog every month gets Di Atherton to take a closer look at the town she has called home for the past 20 years. She was shocked the other day to realise that 2016 is the 20th anniversary of their move from Benoni out onto a farm in the Peebles Valley.

If you ever attend a function in White River, no matter what it might be, there is a fairly good chance you will meet at least a few people you know. Shrieks and cries of joy fill the air as your gaze falls upon a familiar face. As you happily rush to greet them, you may well be introduced to someone else with the words “I am sure you know “XYZ”. Very often the response will be “well, I haven’t met them, but the face is familiar” or “No, but I know the name”.
