WA Governor Kerry Sanderson made her first official visit to the Peel Region today as part of the Governor’s Regional Visit Program.

Ms Sanderson was at Fairbridge Village this morning where she was welcomed by Peel Development Commission chair Paddi Creevey and enjoyed a community morning tea and an Indigenous dance/music performance.

The Regional Visit Program provides an opportunity for the Governor to engage with the community and local government representatives, residents, volunteers, schools, health professionals and local business and learn about initiatives undertaken in the region.

The day also includes visits to Murdoch University at Whitby Falls Farm and Coodanup College’s trade skills centre and a trip with Mandurah Cruises.

Mrs Sanderson, whose term as Governor ends in April, said she had been inspired by the large number of people she had met who contributed to their communities as volunteers or helped others reach their potential through locally run tailored programs.
