I trust the warmest March that I can remember isn’t getting you down? The pool is lovely at this time of year, it’s been great to see the ladies aqua aerobics and Men’s Shed group taking advantage of the idyllic conditions. Ideally, the farming community would like to see some rain so that early sowing and winter crop preparations can commence. As a result, dam water supplies are perilously low on many farms, and a run off event is needed.
The dry season has also impacted our water consumption with higher than average being seen for the past 3 months.
Many residents may see a spike in their water bills which will be issued on April 1 as a result of this increased consumption. The feedback from residents regarding the new waste disposal service has certainly been interesting.
While I acknowledge that Netwaste and Council have not effectively sold the benefits and advantages of the new system, I encourage all residents to do their best to change their habits to meet the new bin schedule.
The Marbles Championships is sure to be a great evening at the golf club tonight. Why not also venture to the Tullamore Irish Festival this Easter, as it promises to be an amazing event with wonderful hospitality and entertainment.
Thank you to all the volunteers who are assisting with the sorting out and packing of unwanted items from the old Parkes and Forbes hospitals, your help is greatly appreciated.
