Olympic Rowing Gold Medallist Jack Hargreaves is currently quarantining with other members of the Australian Olympic Team in Darwin after returning from Tokyo.  He hopes to then travel home to Nyngan and at this stage be with his parents from the 15th to 18th August.  We have organised a community reception for him in Davidson Park on Tuesday morning 17th August, commencing at 11.00am.  All the schools have been invited to attend.  On behalf of all residents of Bogan Shire, a presentation will be made to Jack in recognition of his great effort in rowing in the Men’s Coxless Fours, and winning the gold medal for himself and Australia.  Everyone is welcome to attend.  Please come along and help acknowledge and congratulate Jack on this great achievement.

I am disappointed that the Council elections, already postponed for twelve months, have again been postponed for a further three months, and will now be held on the 4th December.  I hope all those who intended to stand for Council, or seek reselection, will maintain their interest and be candidates on the 4th December.

Our efforts to have the decision by UGL Regional Linx to close the local rail maintenance depot reversed continue.  After further contact with Minister Paul Toole’s office, I was told that representatives from Transport for NSW had been talking to Regional Linx about the job losses and would be reporting back to the Minister, which I will follow up this week.  Local State Member for Barwon, Roy Butler, has also been pursuing this matter with Deputy Premier John Barilaro. 

Efforts to have our local SES Unit reform also continue.  David Monk, Regional Manager in Dubbo, told me that on completion of necessary repairs to the SES building, which have occurred, he will commence a local recruitment campaign.

We watch with concern as the Delta variant of the Covid-19 pandemic continues to spread, despite the metropolitan lockdown.  Regional areas like Armidale, Mudgee, Newcastle, Tamworth and areas north of there, are now effected, with traces of Covid-19 found in the Dubbo sewerage.  Rural areas like ours have to heavily depend on people from lockdown areas doing the right thing and travelling outside these areas.  Residents are encouraged to contact our Medical Centre to book a “jab”.

Work on finishing the reconstruction of 3.4km of the highway east of Nyngan has ceased until October to enable the road to dry out.  This has allowed two extra grader teams to join the five currently carrying out flood damage repairs, gravel resheeting and maintenance grading roads in this year’s program.
