You may have heard the horrible news this week of the vandalism to one of our most loved sculptures by the Lake. If anyone knows anything please report it to the Police. It is terrible to have to do this, but we will put cameras up around areas like this to catch culprits in action if necessary. We do not want to waste valuable time and money on fixing things that shouldn’t need fixing!
This week I had the chance to meet up with Selina Win Pe, Lindt Café siege survivor, and take her on a tour of Nell’s Pantry.
She is such an amazing woman and has made a personal pledge to raise $1 million dollars to assist drought affected communities.
Nell’s Pantry is doing a great service for our community by providing much needed supplies to the struggling farming families in our district. They continue to accept donations of food and supplies, and I encourage you to help where you can.
They are open Tuesdays 1-3.30pm.
This week I have been in Roma for the Australian Livestock Markets Association Annual Saleyards Expo. It was amazing to see this facility in action, being one of the major selling centre’s in the country.
I must congratulate HE Silos on their 50th Anniversary and I’m disappointed I missed the celebrations this week. I have known them from the day they began their business here in Forbes, and they must be very proud of their achievements in creating such a successful inter-generational business. I wish them all the best for the next 50 years!
Also this week we saw Brian Gunn work his last day at Ladybird. I would like to wish he and Marg all the best in retirement and I hope they now have time to smell the roses!
Thanks for all your hard work Brian, we will miss you.
Until next week, God bless.
