Last week I was honoured to present Boggabri local, Col Gillham with a NSW Government Community Service Award. Col has raised a huge amount of money over the years through various endeavours including riding a stick horse named ‘Cedar’ from Boggabri to Baan Baa, swimming the Namoi in the middle of Winter and a massive 40 hour shear-a-thon. It was wonderful to see Col recognised for his wonderful contribution to the community.
To the alarming increase in drug use being reported in local towns. This is a worrying trend and not something we want to see in our area. I would encourage everyone to continue to speak out about the issue and help the police so that these people know it will nto be tolerated.
