Speaking of visitors to town, next week Forbes will welcome about 350 members of the CMCA Solos Network as part of their annual rally. The group will be staying at the Forbes Showground and are looking forward to introducing themselves to locals and will be participating in a range of activities while in town.
One of the main reasons they have chosen to come to Forbes is because of how friendly our community is and the great shopping we have. The Free Cuppa for the Driver Scheme has started back up again and will be running until May 31. Forbes is one of 18 local councils to be a part of the project with 62
businesses ready to serve drivers with a free cup of tea or coffee. The businesses taking part in town are the Bakehouse, Lakeside Takeaway, Superbee Café and Metro Ben Hall Roadhouse.

Have a great week, stay safe and God bless.
