Maureen and I attended the Bowls tournament at the Forbes Sport and Recreation Club. It was a very successful and well organised event by Leisa Burton and Brian and Annette Tisdall. We had dinner recently with James Phillips, grandson to Yvonne Shaw, who was part of the crew from HMAS Warramunga, home after nine months in the Middle East. Since deploying last November, they’ve seized and destroyed narcotics from 16 vessels valued at more than $2.17 billion.
On Tuesday, the General Manager and I along with Hon. Mark Coulton MP Member for Parkes, the Hon. Michael McCormack MP Member for the Riverina and Deputy Prime Minister and Senator the Hon. Matthew Canavan, Minister for Resources and Northern Australia with Parkes Mayor Ken Keith and Mayor John Medcalf from Lachlan Shire visited the proposed mine site at Fifield as part of Clean TeQ Sunrise.
Have a great week!
Mayor Graeme Miller
