This last year of the decade featured many highlights and challenges from the Elvis Festival at the very beginning to the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, plenty of grand projects launched and loads of heart-warming community stories.
The challenges kept our feet on the ground as the drought tightened its grip, the maternity fiasco that still makes our blood boil, and the bush fires and dust storms that have become the norm.
Through all of this we’ve come together as a community to support each other with loads of kindness. Thank you to all our readers for your support, all our contributors for adding value to our content and all our advertisers for keeping us going.
We wish you a blessed Christmas and may the New Year bring us lots of rain, hope and tons of kindness.
