Business Registrations Now Open for 'Free Cuppa' 2018

Local businesses in Warrumbungle Shire are now invited to register for the next phase of the successful driver fatigue awareness campaign, Free Cuppa for the Driver, which will operate from 1 March to 31 May 2018.  

The scheme encourages visiting drivers to stop at participating businesses for a free cup of tea or coffee to take a break from driving long distances.

Warrumbungle Shire will provide the marketing and resources while businesses provide the free tea and/or coffee.  

This scheme is a win for everyone involved.  It’s a win for road safety as drivers take a rest break, a win for local villages, towns and cities as they attract increased visitors and a win for businesses who attract customers.  

The scheme will be operating in at least 24 local government areas within Western and South Western NSW stretching from the Victorian border to the Queensland border.  

Since its inception in 2010, the 'Free Cuppa for the Driver' scheme through its 256 participating businesses has given away 6,784 free cuppas throughout 187 cities, towns and villages in NSW.  

There were 8 participating businesses in Warrumbungle Shire in the last phase of Free Cuppa, but new businesses are more than welcome to participate in the next phase.  

The closing date for registrations is Friday, 6 October 2017.  If your business would like to participate in the ‘Free Cuppa for the Driver’ scheme then please contact Cheyenne O’Brien on (02) 6849 2000 or email info@warrumbungle.nsw.gov.au.
