What lovely soaking rain our region has been enjoying, a much appreciated change from the dry conditions just over a few weeks ago.
Congratulations to the organisers and volunteers of the ABBA festival. What a great weekend jammed packed with entertainment. This year boasted more than 4,500 attendees with over 1,400 camping at the showground. The festival was an absolute credit to you all. Well done Trundle!
NSW Trainlink has confirmed this week that the Parkes Railway Station services will remain unchanged. Following initial concern, the local station was flagged to see services reduced to part time or unattended. The news to preserve the Parkes Railway Station is a positive win for our community and Council would like to thank the local Member for Orange Andrew Gee and NSW Translink for ensuring Parkes Railway station continues to provide services to our community.
Several public art installations will be installed in the Parkes Central Business District (CBD) this week as part of Parkes Shire Council’s Public Art Program which is focused on adding vibrancy to the main street.
The public art installations will be officially opened this evening (Friday May 13) in the Coventry Room. The opening will feature images of the works and a stroll through the CBD to view the works (weather permitting). All community members are invited to attend the official opening.
Have a great weekend.
