Forbes Public School Spring Fair – In it together: Forbes Public School will run a Spring Fair this evening from 5pm – 8pm for the town of Forbes and surrounding areas. Teachers have solicited sponsors from far and wide who were keen to pro- vide prizes to cheer up struggling farmers and rural families. The response has been overwhelming with $20,000 worth of prizes donated. Forbes Public school urges the entire community to come along and support this cause.
There is something for everyone. Games include yabby races, coin toss, tyre changer, footy toss, dunk machine, lucky ducks, Ninja Warrior course, bat the rat, minute to win it as well as ice-cream decorating, hair spray, lucky dip, face-painting and ‘guess the lamb’s weight’. While you are there you can grab a bite to eat and watch local performers such as the Parkes PCYC Gymnasts and Kristin Woods Dance Studio. Then purchase some of their famous cakes, snow cones, donuts, fairy floss, popcorn, white elephant goods, books or plants. Al- low Forbes Public School students, staff and parents to do something for our community to tackle tough times together. They have done all the hard work and all they ask is that you come along and have fun.
More Wild Weather: Forbes residents endured another day of wild wind and thick dust that saw our sky drenched in brown and orange. The air quality index measures air particles with a diameter of less than 10 micrometres, these measurements were taken hourly at weather stations across the Central West. Between 4 – 5pm in Dubbo the PM10 measured at 954, quite significant when readings above 200 are a serious health hazard. Poor air quality can cause serious health issues so please avoid venturing out during dust storms.
