Meet your weather watchers
The Tamworth and Region Weather page started as one man’s passion, but now just five years later the Facebook page boasts over 21,000 followers.
On Saturday founder David Farrenden and his band of seven ‘admins’ from all over the region will celebrate the anniversary with a Meet and Greet day at Bendemeer.
While the day will primarily be an opportunity for those page administrators, who are based everywhere from Quirindi to Walcha and Wollun, to meet each other, the public are also invited to come and meet the team and talk all things weather and life.
The Meet and Greet will be held at the Bendemeer rest stop, across the river from the Hotel starting at 1pm on Saturday.
