Still Time To Dine: The NSW Government’s Dine & Discover initiative was due to cease at the end of June, then July, but will now cease on August 31. This extension will give people more time to use all of their vouchers eating out or trying a new activity this month.
Dine vouchers can be still used at the Trading Post, Royal Hotel, Golf Club, Canowindra Hotel, Services Club as well as Rogue Carriage.
The vouchers are easy to use. They can be either printed off from an email to hand in or can be accessed from an SMS sent by Service NSW or on your personal Service NSW page.
Census On Tuesday, Don’t Forget! There’s something magical about Census night. The thought all 10 million households are sitting down at the same time to fill out the form. Of course, that’s not really the way these days but still. Census date is Tuesday, August 10, 2021.

The Federal government encourages people to fill out their details online, even before the main event.
The Census of Population and Housing is held every five years, counting every person and household.
