COVID 1 vs Open Gardens 0
This is not the score line our Que Club had hoped for, but sadly we had to cancel the annual Open Gardens event that was scheduled for this Sunday. A tremendous amount of work by our Garden committee goes into planning and arranging this event, while the owners of the gardens spend enormous hours into making sure that their gardens are looking at their very best on the day. Que Club would like to thank them all most sincerely for their work and enthusiasm, and as a token of our appreciation, we have presented all the owners with a lavender plant which we hope will bloom beautifully and profusely in their gardens.

Keeping The Roads Safe This Harvest
Agricultural machinery owners and operators are invited to get road ready for the 2021 harvest season, by picking up a free ‘Moving Harvest Machinery’ USB from all agricultural machinery retailers and rural supply stores in the Parkes, Forbes and Lachlan Shires areas, as well as at the Councils’ Administration Offices. The USB contains all the relevant notices for safely and legally moving agricultural machinery, combinations and trucks on the road along with other useful harvest safety information.
