Museum opens back up
After a long closure due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the Age of Fishes Museum reopened its doors on Monday for the first time since August, and is welcoming visitors.
The Age of Fishes Museum staff will be asking for proof of vaccination for the foreseeable future, and ask that all visitors comply with the NSW Health guidelines.
Please be kind to those who are working hard to enforce the new rules in an ever changing environment, and continue to be informed by the NSW Health website and information.
As a continuing safety measure, the Home and Community Care office in Canowindra remains open by appointment only at this stage. Please call 6344 1199 if you require any assistance.
Flyovers create digital twins
As part of a program covering more than 28,000 km of powerlines, aerial LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology will capture im-ages to update the ‘digital twin’ of Essential Energy’s powerlines and power poles in Canowindra and surrounding area.
The flyovers will update the organisation’s three-dimensional digital network where hundreds of power poles and powerlines were replaced following the devastating fires and flooding in the state, to complete the digital model.
The digital model helps Essential Energy with maintenance, construction and asset management activities and is also used by third parties.
Carers NSW Celebrates National Carers Week 2021
National Carers Week runs until Saturday, with this year’s theme of Millions of Reasons to Care aiming to raise awareness of the significant contribution that the 2.65 million carers across Australia make to society.
In celebration of National Carers Week, the Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) has funded over 400 Carers Week Grants, with a range of local events for carer groups set to be held across New South Wales.
Carers NSW Chief Executive Officer, Elena Katrakis, said National Carers Week has come at an important time this year.
She said the need to support and recognise carers has never been greater.
“While celebrating the ongoing work of carers is something that should be constant, National Carers Week provides an excellent opportunity each year for the broader community to come together and show their appreciation for carers. It is important that carers are not just looking after the person they care for, but for themselves as well.”
