The Tour de Cure aspires to assist with the funding of cancer research, with their goal to reach $3.8 million by the end of the financial year.

The team of 30 Australian cyclists are riding from Albany to Bunbury from Wednesday November 26 to Saturday November 29 to raise money for vital cancer research for Perth based charity Melanoma WA, supporting projects across Australia.

Tour de Cure WA Ambassador Matt Fullton said the funds would create melanoma support packs for South West GPs.

“The purpose of the melanoma support packs is to fill the void between initial diagnosis and referral to a specialist,” Mr Fullton said.

“We’re excited to be bringing the event to the South West of WA for the first time and are really looking forward to supporting the local communities of WA.

“Margaret River is going to be the highlight of the tour – presenting a significant cheque to Melanoma WA and riding through a stunning region of Australia,” he said.

The Tour de Cure riders will also visit several primary schools along the way, including St Thomas Moore in Margaret River to spread a cancer prevention message to over 2000 school children.

The dinner will be held at the Quality Inn Margaret River with Melanoma WA’s chief executive officer Clinton Heal in attendance to accept a $10,000 cheque raised by the cyclists.

By attending, dinner participants will become part of the unique cycling experience, with awards being given out for the day’s ride along with the presentation of the cheque to go towards the cancer prevention project in the local community.

Council finances get tick of approval

Friday, 16 November, 2018

Gunnedah Shire Council has released its annual report for 2013-14 in the same week auditors gave the shire’s finances a clean bill of health.

Council’s financial officer Kim Chua told the November council meeting all council’s ratios met local government benchmarks.

The council received an unqualified audit.

“In the words of the auditors, we are in very good stead. We are in the top 10 to 20 per cent of all councils.”

Gunnedah Shire Council is measured against benchmarks set for a band of councils of similar sizes.

Auditors UHY Haines Norton Chartered Accountants noted a council surplus of $5.069million, including grants and contributions, $822,000 higher than the year before.

Gunnedah Mayor Owen Hasler.

The surplus was helped along by a nine per cent increase ($1.177 million) in rates and annual charges, and a 21 per cent increase ($1.75 million) in user charges and fees.

The rates and annual charges income was boosted by the special rate variation the council has implemented.

The value of council’s net assets increased by $6.897 million to more than $333 million, and borrowings were up $4.614 million to $5.996 million.

Councillors also applauded the highlights of the annual report.

“This report is something we should be proudly providing to the community to make sure the community is aware of the efforts of this council,” Gunnedah mayor Owen Hasler told council.

“I think we are doing very well based on both the auditor’s report and the annual report.”

Deputy mayor Gae Swain said it was a good effort, particularly considering the “huge, huge turnover of information, and in some cases, of staff”.

General manager Eric Groth said the past financial year had been the biggest period of change he had seen during his 17 years in local government.

He said it had also been one of the “highest periods of achievement” he had seen during that time.

“I ask the community to recognise the achievements of staff,” Mr Groth said.

“They are people who live in this community with you, and they care as much about the community as you do.”

Among the highlights listed in the annual report were recurrent savings of more than $500,000 under council’s efficiency program, implementation of 61 out of the 67 actions in the Blackadder Review (with the rest to be completed this financial year)and negotiation of in principle voluntary planning agreements with Whitehaven and Shenhua.

“The achievement of significant savings by council was achieved by an organisation-wide efficiency target required to be met by managers, and establishment of a savings project team,” the report noted.

It said council had delivered two per cent – or $480,000 – in savings.

“Items included in these savings include the removal and non-replacement of a senior mangement position, the director community and corporate services, as part of a restructure, reduction in the number of vehicles held by council, changes to telephone systems, relocation of the Visitor Information Centre and a number of other efficiency initiatives,” the report said.

“These were achieved without negatively impacting upon service delivery. In a number of these instances, council has in fact been able to enhance service delivery at a reduced cost.”

• 139 development applications were lodged valued at $23.339 million

• 9013 visitors attended the Visitor Information Centre in 2013-14 – about 24 visitors a day, or three per hour

• Council received 1463 customer requests

• From January 2013 to October 2014, the gunnedah.nsw.gov.au website had 94,094 visitors

Around 250 people visited the Ward’s beautiful garden, enjoying a Devonshire tea while taking in views of roses of every kind.

With all proceeds going to the Canowindra Garden Club to be used for town improvements, Mrs Ward said Morris Park is next on the list.

“We raised $2500 which was just fantastic. We’re spending it on improvements in Morris Park like garden seats and a memorial rose garden that we look after in honour of our founding member, Margo Chick,” she said.

“There’s also a kiosk there that we’re going to refurbish so we’d just like to really thank everyone for coming and supporting the event.”

The couple’s niece and now a top ten finalist in the Telstra Road to Discovery talent development program, singer/songwriter Sophie Payten also attended the event and sang the afternoon away.

“It was just lovely having Sophie sing and we were all sitting there thinking how one day we’ll be able to say we heard her before she becomes really famous,” Anne laughed.

Luke Gordon from Eureka Plants in Canowindra also proved to be a valued guest speaker, sharing his knowledge of all things roses.

Eureka Plants has been specialising in roses for 30 years, with Luke also holding a horticulture degree from Melbourne University.

Rose diseases, summer pruning, how to look after different varieties including Floribundas, old English roses, hybrid roses, hybrid teas and mini roses.

A range of exciting new rose types were also on the agenda at the popular afternoon.

Friday, 16 November, 2018

Dry conditions are forecast to continue for the region.THE Scenic Rim is in for a hot, dry summer carrying little reprieve for drought-stricken farmers, with arid conditions forecast to continue into January.
Nanjing Night Net

The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting a drier and hotter than usual summer for the region, which has been officially in drought since August 1 this year.

In its three month outlook for rainfall the Bureau predicted the region was likely to receive low rainfall, high temperatures and a higher chance of heat waves.

Beaudesert is unlikely to receive rainfall above the median of 306mm from November to January, with the Bureau predicting only a 30 per cent chance the region will get more than the median.

The Bureau predicts the region has a 75 per cent chance of recording maximum temperatures above the median of 29.7 degrees celcius.

Bureau senior hydrologist Dr. Paul Feikema said the hot dry conditions were likely to be felt across the country.

“Early summer is looking warmer than average for virtually the entire continent and drier than normal conditions are likely in the east,” he said.

“The warm and dry mean long term drought conditions have continued in Queensland.

“Warmer than average days are expected from November to January across much of Australia.”

Drought Relief Assistance Scheme loans are open to farmers in Scenic Rim.
