Winter festival: The Bathurst Winter Festival runs from 1st to 16th July featuring an ice rink and a ferris wheel and two-storey carousel for the duration of the festival, and a Brew and Bite on Saturday 8th July with markets, entertainment, food, wine and beer and many more. Visit www.bathurstwinterfestival.com.au for more information.
Peace Precinct: The Rotary Club of Parkes will host the re-dedication of Parkes as a Rotary Peace community by Mayor Ken Keith on Wednesday, 28th June.
Parkes was declared a Rotary International Peace Community in 2012. How- ever the site of the commemoration was deemed inappropriate, so the club has overseen the construction of a Peace Precinct that can be enjoyed by the whole community and is a worthwhile addition to the Rotary Arboretum.
Rotary invites the general public to the ceremony next week at 11am. The Peace Precinct is in the park on the East Street side near the corner of Bushman Street.
The club will provide tea and coffee and sausage sandwiches provided free to school children and a gold coin donation for adults.
