IS anyone else starting to look ahead in their diary and think how busy it is getting and already feeling tired?

This is the time of year when talk turns to Christmas parties, festive shopping and family gatherings.

If your diary is anything like Parade’s one, there are not a lot of free weekends left for the remainder of 2017.

Speaking of 2017, it’s not long now until we’ll be ringing in the new year.

Have your say to Bathurst council

HAVE you ever wanted to have your say to Bathurst Regional Council, but were not sure how to do it?

Council’s ‘Welcome YourSay Bathurst’ webpage offers people the opportunity to have their say on a range of topics.

“This is a space for you to share ideas, discuss important topics, provide feedback on policy and planning and contribute to the future of your community,” the pages states.

Right now, council are looking for feedback on a number of topics, including: Inland Sea of Sound; financial statements; Bathurst 2036 Housing Strategy – Stage 2 Strategy Development; and the Gateway Enterprise Park.

A number of ongoing projects are also up for discussion, including: Bathurst Rail Museum; Pillars of Bathurst and the Perthville Village Square.

Lastly, there is also a suggestion box.

So stop wishing you could have your say, visit http://yoursay.bathurst.nsw.gov.au/ and get involved.

Come one, come all to spring fair

IT’S that time of year when the days are longer and it’s time to visit the odd spring fair or two.

Coming up later this month is the South Bathurst Anglican Parish Spring Fair.

The annual event will be held from 9am to 2pm on Saturday, November 25 at the old St Barnabas’ site in South Bathurst.

Reverend Rosie Wynter has welcomed the wider community to come along and enjoy the event.

“There will be clothes, home baked goods, plants, hand made crafts, morning tea and a sausage sizzle barbecue,” she said.

All funds raised will go to the parish.
