GOVERNOR General Quentin Bryce has a hectic schedule of events lined up for her visit to Bathurst next Tuesday.
THE details of the Governor General’s visit were being finalised yesterday.
They include a lap of Mount Panorama in the George Reed Special which is housed at the National Motor Racing Museum.
A Bathurst Regional Council spokesperson said yesterday everything was coming together nicely in what would be a special occasion for the region.
“It’s not so much the red tape involved with a visit of this magnitude, because the Governor General says she wants it all be pretty relaxed,” the spokesperson said.
“The challenge is to get all the logistics sorted out because it’s a pretty tight schedule to work with to ensure the visit runs smoothly and to time.
“The Governor General wants to see as much of Bathurst as possible while she’s here.”
The spokesperson said the Governor General’s visit coincides with National Families Week and Volunteers Week.
“As such, meeting a cross-section of the Bathurst community is the focus of her visit,” the spokesperson said. “At this stage we believe she will be travelling here by car and when she arrives around lunchtime will be taken past the cathedral belltower in Kings Parade which will have its bells peeling in her honour.
“Her agenda includes meeting local Aboriginal community members involved with the Sir Joseph Banks Nature Reserve and Towri Mac Functional Centre and then a visit to Carenne School.”
Other commitments include a visit to Charles Sturt University and a tour of the dental facility and nursing facilities.
That will be followed at 3.45pm by a civic reception in the Pit Complex Mount Panorama which is open to the public. Everyone is welcome to attend.
While yet to be confirmed, the Governor General is also expected to meet business owners on a walk through the central business district.
The final engagement for the Governor General will be at the local Chamber of Commerce “Business After Hours” gathering at The Grange at CSU which starts at 6pm.
