Over the long weekend we welcomed the 40th National Sunbeam Car Rally to Forbes. We hosted an official welcome on Friday night in the Town Hall and it was a great event. On Saturday morning the rain held off long enough for the show and shine in Harold Street and there were some great cars on display.
The participants in the rally were so pleased with their time in Forbes and I enjoyed a great night out at their social dinner on Saturday.
The Sydney Weekender episode featuring Forbes is set to air at 5.30pm on Prime7 on July 10! Make sure you tune in to watch Mike Whitney venture around Forbes! We have had quite a few economic development enquiries and we are working with the interested parties to achieve the best outcome possible for the community.
All of the enquiries have been very positive and we will keep you posted when we have something concrete to report.
A background paper on the Joint Organisations model has been released and is currently on exhibition. If the model is right, Joint Organisations will be beneficial for regional collaboration and planning throughout regional councils.
Tonight the Western Region Academy of Sport is hosting a Regional Athlete and Coach Education Workshop at the Forbes Sports and Recreation Club from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. The workshop will provide a range of valuable information to athletes and is free to attend.
Have a great week, stay safe and God bless.
Mayor, Cr Phyllis Miller OAM
