The mercury hit over 35 degrees on Friday and Saturday and with the temperature well over 30 on Sunday, it’s a sign that winter cannot come quick enough for Parade.

The blazing heat, sun-baking, trips to the beach – it’s just not Parade’s cup of tea and he can’t wait until the frosts are setting and the snow is falling.

Winter is  always Parade’s favourite time of year because it’s easy to escape the cold – just rug up. 

However, if you don’t have an air-conditioner, like Parade, then it is extremely hard to get away from the heat in summer.

At least in Parade doesn’t have to put up with the humidity in Bathurst

That was one of the perks moving from the hot, stuffy Western Sydney climate five years ago.

The heat is expected to hang around in Bathurst for the next week, with Weatherzone’s forecast predicting 34 degrees on Wednesday as the highest temperature until next Saturday.

Each day until next Saturday will be over 30.

If you’re a lover of the heat – enjoy – and if you’re like Parade, don’t worry – winter is coming. 

Club hosts its general meeting

Bathurst Athletic Football Club hosted its annual general meeting on Saturday afternoon, ahead of its second season of play in Bathurst District Football and first since 2015. 

It was a great chance for new and interested players to get to know each other and to find out more information about the game.

Eglinton charity football match

Eglinton District Football Club hosted its charity match yesterday between the club’s best senior players against the club’s best junior players. 

While the junior team was the more fancied team, it was the seniors that won the game 6-3 at Eglinton Oval. 

Trent and Alec were the best on field players, while huge thanks has to go to Kaitlyn Crook who was the driving force of the event.
