Mayoral Minutes

DREAM Festival soon to begin

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of riding the ‘Fender Blender’ to make orange juice for intrigued onlookers at the Dubbo Farmers Markets. Apart from making me work up a sweat, the idea was to raise awareness about the upcoming Dubbo Sustainable City Expo. The Expo is now in its ninth year and, for the first time ever, the Expo is being combined with Science Café. There will be 30 exhibitors with displays that aim to help residents reduce their environmental footprint and experts on hand to discuss the latest sustainable living technology, appliances and services. The Science Café will have a number of activities aimed at showing some of the wonders of science as part of National Science Week. I encourage you to visit the Dubbo Regional Botanic Garden between 9am and 2pm this Saturday. Read More...

There is so much happening in Dubbo each and every week that I have never had a case of ‘Writer’s Block’ when it comes to this column. This week is no exception. Read More...

Police versus Paramedics in basketball battle

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I must admit that Basketball was never my favourite game at school. I can vaguely remember playing it for compulsory school sport - and that was about it - but somehow Peter Hargreaves has convinced me to play in a charity basketball match this Saturday as part of the Dubbo Police personnel team.  Read More...
