Covid forces changes to Moree NAIDOC Week activities

The Moree Aboriginal interagency group has had to postpone some of the upcoming NAIDOC Week activities due to increasing Covid-19 restrictions.

NAIDOC Week was due to be held from Sunday, July 4-11 but due to concerns over the expanding Covid-19 cluster and the latest health order which includes restrictions on the state until Friday (July 9), the group felt it had no choice.

Events which will be impacted include the opening march, morning tea and flag raising which were to be held on Monday, The Moree Hospital open day, Olympics and fun day.

Events that will still go ahead, and that meet the NSW Government health guidelines, include the opening church service at Ephraim House on Sunday, golf day on Friday, Boomerangs v Narwan league on Saturday, AFL indigenous round and charity auction also on Saturday, and the closing church service on Sunday, and soccer Indigenous round on July 17.

A new date for postponed activities will be announced.
