ABC Backroads Featuring Canowindra: The ABC Backroads program on Canowindra will be aired on Monday January 8th

Cabonne Community Transport Volunteers: Spent 4,400 hours behind the wheel, driving 116,000 kilometres to help frail aged and transport disadvantaged clients in the Shire during 2016-17. To put that into perspective, they made the equivalent of 32 trips from Cabonne to Perth. The volunteer drivers made more than 8,800 trips during the year. These volunteers are the backbone of the Cabonne communities and community transport receives amazing support from its volunteer drivers. In addition to these trips, Cabonne Community Transport coordinated bus services from Manildra, Cudal, Yeoval and Cumnock to Orange each fortnight and buses from Eugowra, Canowindra and Cargo every month. The service also provided taxi vouchers for clients in Canowindra and
organised a number of social trips for senior residents.
