The day was once again supported by Phil Donato MP who arrived to read to the children, and with great excitement our local Mayor Phyllis Miller also read to groups of children young and old. The Trainee Ranger and Weeds Officer from Council joined in the day reading a book relating to animal safety with the children and Landcare and Forbes North Public School provided some practical activities using reading as a super power. CatholicCare, Mainly Music, KDS, Central West Libraries, and Forbes SaCC joined the Schools to provide activities and engage with the community.

This week I attended the Forbes Drought Business Forum at Council Chambers. It was great to listen to the ways businesses are trying new things to keep customers coming through their doors. Speakers from Central West Business HQ presented ways to adapt to several local business owners and ways in which they can collaborate to create unique customer experiences. Everyone walked away knowing there is support from other businesses in our community, if they need it. Council received news this week that a Sydney firm has been granted the road work contract for the thirty overtaking lanes upgrade along the Newell Highway. This is so disappointing to hear Forbes Shire Council, along with a few other Councils accredited to do the work, were overlooked completely. I have let the Minister know we would like to keep these jobs in our Shire, especially during this awful drought. I willlocally first!THUMBS UP...
