I am proud of Forbes, for its natural beauty, heritage character, cleanliness and strong community spirit. It’s the reason many tourists
from across the state and nation come to Forbes. For one week I encourage everyone to embrace our home town from the perspective of a tourist. It brings alive the history and vibrancy that we often miss.
An important part of keeping our rich heritage alive is done by individuals and organisations who work tirelessly in our community. To celebrate this, Forbes Shire Council will be presenting two major heritage awards. Forms and information are available from the Council office or can be downloaded from Council’s website under residents/youth and community. Good luck!
I look forward to being back in Forbes on Thursday for our March Council meeting. It is anticipated that an audit report on Vanfest 2017 will be presented to Councillors. The report will assist Council in its deliberations regarding Vanfest.
Lastly, my heartfelt thanks go out to all the people who turned up to help clean up on Clean Up Australia Day. Someone once remarked that Forbes people are proud of their town and it shows. On behalf of the Council, thank you to all those that cleaned up and continue to volunteer for the betterment of Forbes. At the end of the day it’s the people that make Forbes the unique town we are proud to be a part of. Well done all!
Councillor Susan Chau
