Thanks to all the community members that took the time to nominate someone they think is worthy of recognition. The efforts of the businesses in town is unbelievable, the streets look lovely decorated up ready for Christmas. Graham Andrews park will look beautiful soon, just waiting on Solar lights and the fencing will be completed shorty .

We ask Dog owners to be responsible pet owners and keep them secured in their yards and also in this hot weather that they have shade and plenty of water. Please DO NOT give pets as Christmas presents unless you are prepared to look after your pet properly It is a terrible time of year for pets given as gifts to be then abandoned.
