Congratulations: To Adelaide Lawrence and her daughter Eva who were the winners of our Taronga Western Plains Zoo Competition – enjoy your day out!
Canowindra Zoo: The Canowindra Historical Society and Museum are after information from older residents to see if there was a “Zoo” in the area near the tennis courts of Canowindra. There have been whispers that there was a collection of wildlife there, perhaps along the lines of peacocks in the early 1930s. If you have any information on this please send to Canowindra Historical Society PO Box 32, Canowindra 2804 or email Jan Harrison on firstname.lastname@example.org
Stronger Country Communities Funding: Cabonne Council will submit 13 community projects to be considered for funding
under the second round of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund. The projects (see listing in advertisement on Page 5), with a total value of more than $3.6 million, range from the expansion of long day care facilities at Molong and Cudal to sporting venue upgrades, major showground improvements and the construction of shared mobility access pathways in various towns and villages. The Council is now seeking public comment and feedback on each of the proposals before submitting its application to the Department of Premier and Cabinet, which will assess the projects and make a determination on funding. Public comment and feedback will provide valuable evidence of community support for the various projects. The Government will also survey local communities through consultants Choice Modelling to independently confirm community support for the proposals. The closing date for comments is 5pm on Wednesday 28 March 2018. Comments and submissions may be made by writing to Cabonne Council, PO Box 17, Molong NSW 2866 or emailing email@example.com
