Darcy wins poetry comp.
Congratulations to Berrigan Public School student Darcy Owen on coming first in the poetry competition, ‘What Remembrance Day Means to Me’, held by the Berrigan RSL.
The standard of the entries was very high.
These poems are on display at the Berrigan RSL for all to read.
Berrigan scooped the pool at the Keep New South Wales Beautiful Blue Star Sustainability Regional Awards, receiving more awards than any other town in NSW.
We were narrowly beaten by Orange in the Overall Regional Sustainability Award, receiving a Highly Commended. A huge effort for our little town.
This year we were not judged by population; it was open to every entry.
Berrigan Shire Council has also congratulated Maree Ryan on her individual award. She was honoured in the Environmental Achievement Awards.
Thank you Maree and all others in our community for making our shire so beautiful, each and every day.
We should all be very proud of this achievement.
Awards are on display in the window of Dawmac’s.
