Welcome from the Coordinators! - Cromwell Newcomers Network

With a population that grew 15% between the last two censuses, Cromwell is a place where there are lots of newcomers! Cromwell’s social service interagency group came up with the idea of establishing a local group that links into the national Newcomers Network. Marie Roxburgh, Sharon Smid and Vivien Lightfoot are working together to establish the group. Marie has been in Cromwell for 9 years. She works for Public Health and knows the importance of people feeling connected to their community. Sharon Smid works in the Cromwell Resource Centre and has a real passion for Cromwell and its people. Vivien Lightfoot is new to Cromwell and runs a writing and communications business.


We look forward to hearing from you!
