Forbes Handicraft Market Day: The Forbes Handicraft Centre is holding its first Market Day for 2016 on 16 January 2016 outside the shop in Lachlan Street, Forbes. There will be lots of fresh produce available such as home grown tomatoes, cucumbers and fresh farm eggs. A wide variety of home made cooking is also available. For the gardener a huge selection of plants will be on display.
‘Thank you’ to local paramedics: Thank you for the prompt action by our local ambulance staff, also to the ambulance helicopter staff and the staff of emergency services at Orange Base Hospital for their care and attention given to me on Monday following my fall. We were very impressed as the accident happened at 9.20 am and
Orange Base Emergency staff phoned my wife at 12.30 to let her know that I had not suffered any serious injuries. Often you get complaints but you could not ask for any better service than this – John MacCullagh
Scammers are on the job: Just a quick heads up that there has been reports of calls alerting to potential scams occurring across the Calare electorate. The latest one involves scammers imitating Department of Human Services or Centrelink officers trying to trick you into handing over your money or personal details. It is important to note that the Department of Human Services does not send formal correspondence to private email accounts. Formal correspondence is only ever sent as either hardcopy mail to an individual’s nominated address or as electronic mail to their myGov account. As always, never give out your personal details over email or the phone. If in doubt contact the organisation they are purporting to be directly. And if you believe it to be a scam please report it online at www.
scamwatch.gov.au or by calling 1300 795 995.
Get down to Bunnings on Saturday 23 January and help support the local volunteer fire brigades and emergency services through their annual Aussie Day Weekend Fundraiser BBQ.
