Lions Park RV Dump Point Relocation: With regional roads currently full of travellers, RV Dump Points are becoming the latest hot spots to locate. RV Dump Points are sites especially designed for Recreational Vehicles to dispose of their waste, including grey and black water, and sewage in the most environmentally friendly method of emptying waste from a caravan. Forbes has multiple sites available including Caravan Parks within the Shire, Forbes Showground and currently on the edge of Lions Park. The Lions Park dump point is going to be relocated to Wheogo Park in the coming weeks and Forbes Shire Council is advising the community that roadworks will be in place. Work on moving the site will commence Monday, 19 October 2020 and Junction Street will be closed for two days.
Central West Mayors Back Tresillian Residential Service: The Mayors of the Central NSW Joint Organisation are throwing their support behind the campaign lead by the Hon Steph Cooke, Member for Cootamundra for the Tresillian Residential Service at the Cowra Hospital, as part of the new upgrade to Cowra Hospital.
Tresillian is a long-standing organisation for young families and young children with expert parenting advice. They also have helped develop a Sleepwell Baby app for parent concerns such as baby sleep and settling, development, feeding and nutrition. Tresillian began with the Spanish Flu pandemic that reached Sydney early 1919. With 100 years of invaluable service for young families across New South Wales, Tresillian has played an important and unique role in the history of New South Wales. Hopefully, struggling parents and carers will soon have much easier access to this invaluable resource soon.
Pool Closures: This swim season, due to COVID-19 restrictions, new rules have been put into place to ensure all of the community has access to the Forbes Olympic Pool. So that the learn to swim program and squad training can go ahead, the pool will be closed to the public from 3.30pm-4.30pm on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. While this may be frustrating from some members of the public, it is important to remember that these rules are in place for the health and safety of the entire community. As a community resource, it is critical that all have access to this wonderful facility.
