  1. Sheree is the Shire of Merredin Media Officer and I (Robyn) manage the Central Wheatbelt Visitor Centre. We would like to assist in the weekly contributions for the Shire of Merredin page on your new website. Please note the spelling of Merredin is incorrect on this web page link.

    • Hi Robyn and Sheree, thanks for your interest! I will reply to Sheree’s Facebook message and hopefully we can work something out. Also, thanks for letting us know about the spelling! Such an obvious mistake that has been overlooked.
      Kind regards – Ed.
