Forbes Widows Support Group: Thirteen ladies enjoyed a paper craft creations afternoon at the Forbes Services Memorial Club on 17th August. Sandra and Grace Hosking from the Trundle Craft Shop hosted the event with the ladies sharing ideas and laughter as they glued together paper, doilies, cardboard and flowers to make Christmas decorations and a variety of
cards for special occasions. Mayor Phyllis Miller presented the group with a cheque, which came from the proceeds of the Orange Male Voice Choir Concert, and will be used for future outings.
Movie winners: The first winner of our Forbes Services Club Cinema competition is Neil Lambert, and the second fortnight’s winner is Allan Wright. Congratulations – you both won a family pass! A winner will be drawn every fortnight until the end of October.
Correction: The Electoral Commission advertisement on page 2 in last week’s issue, wrongly stated ten councillors would be elected. There are only nine councillor positions.
