The Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project and the Shire of Ashburton have joined forces to promote initiatives and events that encourage participation and create a sense of involvement among the Onslow community.
Since its inception, the 'Working Together for Onslow' (WTO) partnership has been a huge success, and is set to continue.
WTO supports key community programs and events such as Onslow Living, ANZAC Day commemorations, Onslow's over 55's group - the Onslow Keepers, School Holiday activities and specialist training and development initiatives.
The success of the WTO partnership, is in its diversity of programs and events that cater for all ages and community groups. One of the most successful programs is the Onslow Keepers, a group of over 55's who get together for morning teas and activities, to socialise and share experiences.
The Onslow Living events are another great initiative where new residents can learn about all the activities Onslow has to offer, and get involved in volunteer opportunities.
These programs are vital in enhancing Onslow’s sense of place and fostering positive community engagement.
