This week we welcomed NSW Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, The Hon David Elliott who was in town to trial a new interactive learning experience at Parkes Memorial Hill. Parkes Memorial Hill Rejuvenation Incorporated received $2,000 from the State Government to develop interpretative content to link to Quick Response (QR) Codes located
around the site. The QR Codes will link to Council’s website, providing residents and visitors more information about the site.
Development of the website content and installation of the QR codes will take place in the coming months. Council invites residents who participated in the NSW Solar Bonus Scheme to attend an Energy Opportunity Workshop in the Parkes Shire Council Coventry Room on Monday, 14th November at 5.30pm. With the scheme closing at the end of the year, the workshop will inform customers about what you need to do in the lead up to the closure and the important steps you need to take to get the best out of your renewable energy system. For more information, contact
Council’s Environment and Sustainability Coordinator on 6861 2343.
It’s never too late to learn to swim, with adult swimming lessons kicking off Tuesday, 15th November. The five-week program offers adults a chance to learn the skill at their own pace, with the lessons tailored specifically for adults. Enrolment forms are available from Council’s website and closes next Friday.
