Moorbel Hall Keeps Improving: The Moorbell Hall committee continue to work on updating the building with Cabonne Council recently giving the space a fresh coat of paint. Work continues on the hall, committee member Maureen Birmingham said, with new lighting now installed and flooring soon to be upgraded thanks to a $43,000 grant through Drought Relief.
“It looks like a different hall altogether,” said Maureen. “We would like to thank the community as without them, we would not have the hall. The community keeps it going by supporting the monthly Moorbell Markets.”
Eugowra is Tops: Eugowra has made it to the finals of Business NSW’s Top Tour-ism Town awards.

There are 42 finalists, with Orange, Millthorpe and Carcoar also in the running. Eugowra has increased its numbers of visitors over the years, notably with the Mural Weekend which is an annual event started in 2012.
