Sandbag Collection In The CBD: Council will be collecting sandbags in the CBD area in the lead-up to Christmas, 13th December – 22nd December. Please call Council on 6850 2300 to register to have a pallet delivered to your shopfront to ensure you are not missed. We ask you to load the sandbags onto the pallet and ring to let us know the pallet is ready to be picked up. This service is only available for the CBD area and residents in the urban areas are advised to use any sandbags that are no longer needed to top-dress lawns and gardens. Your garden will thank you!
Platypus Gallery Showcases Its Latest Exhibition For 2021: Platypus Gallery is supporting the extended talents of all local artists. Each participant was asked to create an artwork that depicts a line from a song or poem that depicts the Rhythm of Life. The theme is a unique way of creating art that each artist has a reference point other than a scene. A song or poem can bring other emotions to the surface of the artist and extend their outlook into a deeper emotion. Rhythm of Life is an eclectic slew of submissions that will appeal to all ages. As the Christmas season is here, an artwork is a unique gift for friends, family, or work colleagues. For more information please contact: Elizabeth King Elizabeth. email@example.com 0467606073
Rural Financial Counseling Services Available: For those looking for rural counselling advice and information, John Beer – a Rural Financial Counselor, is an expert at navigating the Rural Assistance Authority. At present Forbes Shire is still classified at Category B – which means low interest loans and some freight and transport subsidies.
The assessment for the impact on the farming community is currently being undertaken by DPI in order to determine other support but we don’t know what the result of that will be. Of course the flood is still impacting our shire so this assessment is going to take time.
