    Back to Bri Festival Long Weekend in October

    A major new Narrabri community festival to be held on the October long weekend is to be launched this year.

    The festival, ‘Back to the ‘Bri’ will aim to encourage former residents to return to town for the weekend, offer special shopping promotions and stage a carnival program of entertainment.

    The impetus for the new festival came from the Narrabri Chamber of Commerce whose members saw the need to replace the Chamber’s traditional Maitland Street Christmas Carnival with a community event at a less climatically challenging time of year.

    Chamber members have felt that Christmas weather is too hot and often too stormy to make the most of the function.

    Many Carnival goers and shoppers have agreed.

    The Chamber is planning ‘Back to the ‘Bri to be a ‘Narrabri inclusive’ weekend, drawing residents and visitors and encouraging former
    residents to return to town.

    “It will be an all of Narrabri event,” said Chamber president Russell Stewart.

    “We would like to see it become a weekend where ex-Narrabri people come back, visit family, meet friends and shop in town. It will be a community festival and a carnival weekend.”

    The Chamber is planning a program of events to entertain and engage and encourage local shopping.

GRDC Dealing with the Dry Info Session Wednesday 24 July at Rowena

Firsthand experience of drought and an understanding of the toll it can take on farming businesses, bank
balances and emotional well-being was the catalyst for a series of Dealing with the Dry: Farm management
options during and after drought forums being run across northern New South Wales next month.
Initiated by Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Grower Relations Manager Susan
McDonnell, the forums aim to deliver practical advice ranging from how to talk about debt with your bank
manager, to accessing government services and identifying and supporting mental health issues.
A grain grower herself, Mrs McDonnell said the GRDC Dealing with the Dry forums would be run in small
communities across NSW and were focused on delivering genuinely helpful information directly to those in
need.
“Unfortunately, like many people involved in rural industries, I know only too well the impact of drought. It can
be extremely demoralising and leave you wondering how you will get through both from a financial and
psychological perspective,” she said.

Gloucester's Lyn Stewart to launch her self-published book at Gloucester Bookshop

From the Gloucester Advocate story by Anne Keen

Gloucester's Lyn Stewart had a niggling interest in researching her family history.

Like many Australians, her family tree has a range of convicted criminals, which was partly what first piqued her interest. But it was chasing down that tale of her great great grandmother, Margaret Murphy which inspired her to write a book.

 

She started researching her relative by first acquiring Margaret's death certificate as it provided details of her date of death, the date and location of her birth, and the names of her parents.
