As always there are great things happening across the Electorate at the moment and I would like to give a big thumbs up to just a few of them. In Wanaaring, thumbs up to Western Area Health and the Royal Flying Doctor Service who have an agreement to place a full time nurse practitioner into the region. To the Cobar and Nyngan police who recently made a number of drug arrests in the towns as well as arrests relating to stock theft. These issues have been ongoing for some time so it’s great to see them sorted out. Thumbs up to the Western Carbon Farming Initiative where around 50 landholders have been signed up to receive income from carbon sequestration. And finally, thumbs up to a release of water going down the Barwon River system.
I was shocked to hear of an armed robbery at Warren's Clubhouse Hotel a few weeks ago. This sort of crime is not something we expect in a small community and not something that will be tolerated. I encourage the community to come forward with any information that may help police in their investigations.
