As­so­ci­a­tion (CWA). You all do great things for ru­ral peo­ple and their com­mu­ni­ties.

Thumbs Up

to Dubbo Parkrun. This is a fan­tas­tic ini­tia­tive that ab­so­lutely every­one can get in­volved in and the sup­port­ive at­mos­phere is just bril­liant. It is the best way to start my Satur­day morn­ing – out­doors, ex­er­cis­ing and hav­ing fun! A spe­cial Thumbs Up to the com­mit­tee and the many vol­un­teers; and to those leg­ends that can run up the hills while push­ing a pram!

Thumbs Up

to the Dubbo Farmer Mar­kets which pro­vide a won­der­ful chance to di­rectly sup­port our lo­cal pro­duc­ers with a lovely fam­ily morn­ing out­doors.

Thumbs Up

to Dubbo Photo News for the posters and flags that they pro­vided with our weekly pa­per ahead of the royal visit. What a marvel­lous idea!

Thumbs Up

to the Westview Drive-in for open­ing again last week­end as part of the DREAM Fes­ti­val.

Thumbs Up

to the kind gen­tle­man for help­ing me up af­ter a fall and to the other driv­ers who stopped to see if I was al­right.

Thumbs down

to the royal Pic­nic in the Park. They say 15,000 peo­ple were in Vic­to­ria Park Dubbo to see the royal cou­ple, but when Prince Harry made his speech no one on the oval side of the Ceno­taph heard it as there were no speak­ers; and the Roy­als had no cover such as a gazebo to keep dry. And about 13,000 peo­ple didn’t even see the roy­als as the cou­ple were only taken to greet a se­lect sec­tion of peo­ple, which left a lot of rain-soaked peo­ple very dis­ap­pointed af­ter wait­ing for four hours – some for longer.

Thumbs Up

to Menuka at Dubbo Of­fice­works Print­ing De­part­ment. A very help­ful young lady and cour­te­ous to match.

Thumbs Up

to the Steven­son broth­ers at Vil­lage Bak­ery Cafe. Very de­serv­ing of the Emile Serisier Award, a very fit­ting trib­ute.

Thumbs Up

to the awe­some gen­tle­man who pushed my heavy paver-laden trol­ley to the Bun­nings check­out and then to my car and stacked them in my boot. I so ap­pre­ci­ated your help – thank you.
