Correction: On the front page of last week’s Forbes Phoenix, Issue 274, ‘Three Blue Ducks’ first episode on Network 10 on Saturday night was reported as starting at 7.30pm. This was inaccurate. It should have read that it will air at 7pm.
The second episode will be aired on Network 10 on Saturday, 20th February at 7pm. This episode takes the three chefs to western NSW and a Trundle family property to explore the use of lamb in their cooking. Forbes and Parkes CWA branches were involved in the filming of this episode of the 6 part series. If you missed the first episode you can view it, as well as all the upcoming episodes on 10 Play.
ALGWA Forum: The Australian Local Women’s Government forum will be in Forbes on February 20 at the Forbes Golf and Sportsman’s Hotel in an event designed to educate women who may be interested in putting their hand up to join Council this year.

Peewee Pete Ruffles Feathers At Library: You could be forgiven for thinking it was a Hitchcock film but for a brief moment it’s exactly how it appeared as a wayward magpie-lark (peewee) flew off-course and ventured into the Forbes Library.
“The young bird must have felt the library was a suitable place to roost for he proceeded to take refuge way out of reach on top of the window blinds in the high-ceilinged computer room, ignoring all entreaties for him to vacate the building,” explained Bronwyn Clark, Forbes branch librarian exclusively to the Phoenix.
A phone call to the Forbes Council soon saw the Rangers arrive on the scene then patiently persevered until finally Peewee Pete, was out manoeuvred by Ranger Mat Wallis, who in the end caught young Pete and then gently carried him out and released him back into the park to join his friends. “A big thanks to the rangers for all their help in the safe capture and release of our friend.”
