Spring at Last!

I hope everyone is enjoying the (slightly) warmer weather as we all sur-face from our winter hibernation again and hope for more rain.

We have welcomed a number of new clients to the service since our last newsletter – if you are new to Meals on Wheels, we hope you are enjoying the meals and also not having to worry about cooking or shopping as much any more. Don’t hesitate to contact the office if you have any questions about the service.

Newsletter – Winter 2017

2018-11-24T02:33:12+00:00June 1st, 2017|Newsletters|


Welcome to our new clients and also to our new volunteers. We have had many new consumers join the ranks of meal recipients in both Armidale and Uralla and we hope our meals are helping you get through the cool winter days (and nights!).

Some new volunteers have also joined us recently so if you see a new face on deliveries, make them feel welcome as part of our wonderful network.

Our Volunteers would have noticed the glass partition that has been erected around the administration area, to provide the staff a level of privacy for when the café is established. MOW had previously secured funding under the Armi-dale Regional Council’s Stronger Communities Fund for this partition and for our new freezer room which is still to come.

Newsletter – Autumn 2017

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Jo Heslin for her hard work and dedication to Armidale / Uralla Meals on Wheels and for building this organisation to what it is today.
After a few weeks in the chair I can clearly see that the business is well placed to grow further into the future as we consolidate our plans for the café and to finalise the premises (addition of freezer room, glass petition and solar panels)

Thank you all for your welcoming support and for those of you who were able to attend the afternoon tea to say Farewell to Jo and Welcome to myself, thanks again for your kind words and encouragement!
