Congratulations to HE Silos who were awarded the NSW Business Chamber’s Business of the Year, as well as the winner of the Excellence in Innovation category at a black tie gala dinner in Sydney last Friday. Principal Steven Morrison said he was very pleased to have won the award and being a member of the Forbes Business Chamber had opened a lot of doors for the company.
VANFEST on Friday and Saturday was excellent and everyone who attended had a great time. The work the Clifton family has done to bring an event like this to Forbes is quite outstanding. The event is a huge boost to our economy and they should be very proud of another successful year. It was a busy weekend in town with the Find it in Forbes Christmas Carnival and a number of markets on Saturday. There was also the SES Fundraiser Concert at the Forbes Services Memorial Club and the Forbes Choral Group Carol of Christmas Cantata on Sunday afternoon. All of
the events were well supported and it was great to see so many people out and about over the weekend.
This weekend is another busy one with the Rotary Ipomoea Christmas Tree Festival at the Town Hall today, tomorrow and Sunday, and Carols by Candlelight on Sunday night at Victoria Park. Don’t forget to have your say on the Forbes Community Plan 2027. Surveys can still be sent back or completed online at www.forbes.localvoices.com.au
