Advance Gloucester has invited recipients receiving financial assistance through the latest round of funding from AGL's Gloucester Independent Community Legacy Fund to profile their operations at an open public meeting next Wednesday night (November 15).

The night will be specifically dedicated to these businesses and organisations to showcase what they are currently doing, what they are proposing to do, as well as the employment opportunities and career pathways that will result. 

A total of 15 new full time positions will be created through a combination of investment commitments by GW and KW Forbes, Hunter Special Vehicles, Avon Valley Inn, Fox Den Café and Lone Pine Dairy. 

Additionally, Gloucester High School has been successful in gaining support to create a Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Pipeline Program to enhance existing links between local industry, business and schools.

Each recipient will provide a presentation covering their operation, which members of the public should find interesting and may well be surprised to realise the aspirations of businesses we have in the Gloucester region.

The night is open to the public, commencing 7.30pm next Wednesday, November 15 at the Gloucester Bowling and Recreation Club.
