Comedians Mandy Nolan and Ellen Briggs are returning to the region for three free comedy shows in Wee Waa, Yetman & Bendemeer

Comedians Mandy Nolan and Ellen Briggs are returning to the region for three free comedy shows in Wee Waa, Yetman & Bendemeer

from June 24-26. These are hosted by HealthWISE thanks to a grant from HNE

Irreverent pair Mandy Noland and Ellen Briggs are returning to the North West to give Wee Waa, Yetman and Bendemeer locals a taste of their down-to-earth comedy.
With seven children between them, the duo are not afraid to explore the ups and downs of domestic life, and have a collection of anecdotes about incidents labelled as ‘failures to parent’.
“We're 40 something mothers of teenagers, we're wives, and ex wives!” Mandy said.
“Ellen can wrangle a snake and operate a ride on mower in the afternoon, and by evening she dons heels and a frock and then she's the MC of a charity ball.”
Nothing is off the table in their act – from the beauty industry to menopause, weird TV shows, big undies, and the all-important issue of whose turn it is to unpack the dishwasher.
As ‘small town showgirls’, the pair have endless fun delivering their rapid fire routines on stage, and have a special connection to country audiences.
Hosted by HealthWISE thanks to a Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECC PHN) Empowering Our Communities grant, the duo will perform free shows in Wee Waa on June 24, Yetman on June 25 and Bendemeer on June 26.

Hi Folks,

I hope this Round-Up finds you well. It’s been a very full two weeks, I have been in Walgett a couple of times, Bourke, Nyngan, Carinda, Warren and even managed a stop off for a good lunch at the Nevertire Hotel.

As I write this I am in Argent St Broken Hill, preparing for very full days at the Western Division Conference that has an agenda packed with Ministers and Shadow Ministers and Mayors and Councillors from across western NSW. It’s a great chance for Ministers and Shadow Ministers to understand what is happening in western Councils.

Hi Folks, 

I hope this Round-Up finds you well. It’s been a very full two weeks, I have been in Walgett a couple of times, Bourke, Nyngan, Carinda, Warren and even managed a stop off for a good lunch at the Nevertire Hotel. 

As I write this I am in Argent St Broken Hill, preparing for very full days at the Western Division Conference that has an agenda packed with Ministers and Shadow Ministers and Mayors and Councillors from across western NSW. It’s a great chance for Ministers and Shadow Ministers to understand what is happening in western Councils. 

It’s been a pretty good time for Councils, with millions of dollars in State and Federal grants going to the 13 Councils in Barwon for vital community projects. I am keen to see this continue. 

Last Friday night I received news of the tragic death of a farmer at Gilgandra, a father to four young kids and a husband to one of the kindest and genuine women I have ever known and worked with. His death will drive work that my team and I have already started on Farm Safety – we all deserve to be able to go to work and come home safely to our families at night. 

I hope you all have a good two weeks, we are all watching closely what will happen with water at Menindee, I expect a decision from the Water Minister very soon. We know the right thing to do is put water into the Lakes system and keep it there, let’s hope that is what happens.

REGIONAL HEALTH INQUIRY TO VISIT MORE TOWNS IN BARWON

I’m on the record many times saying the Regional Health Inquiry that’s currently going on is a once in a generation opportunity to change health, health outcomes and health services in the Bush. 

I’ve said that to you the people of Barwon and I’ve also said that to the Members of Parliament on the Health Inquiry. I’ve implored the Inquiry to not make this Inquiry a political football and to do a proper job. We need prospective, positive, forward looking recommendations out of this Inquiry. 

In my opinion doing a proper job means getting out into our communities. They’d always planned to do regional visits but I felt the original list of places fell short - they were only visiting one place in western NSW. 

Both myself and a number of Councils wrote to the committee asking that they visit more places and go further west. Due to the pressure the committee will now be heading out to Broken Hill, Walgett and Cobar along with more towns outside of Barwon. 

The committee will visit: 

• Deniliquin - 29 April 

• Cobar - 30 April

• Wellington - 18 May 

• Dubbo - 19 May 

• Gunnedah and Taree - 16 June 

• Lismore - 17 June 

• Tumut - 5 October 

• Wagga - 6 October 

• Walgett - 2 November 

• Broken Hill - 3 November 

Along with holding more hearings in Sydney. For all the information on the Inquiry visit the NSW Parliament website.

NO LIGHTS, NO BOOM GATES – MORE MUST BE DONE TO FIX UNSAFE LEVEL CROSSINGS

During a trip to Nyngan recently the Bogan Shire Council raised the need for the Government to fund an upgrade to the Hoskins Street rail crossing. 

If you’re not familiar with Nyngan it’s divided by the railway line, that’s used by large freight trains to take grain and ore from Cobar and Nyngan to the ports along the coast. On one side of the track are the schools and the Bogan Shire Medical Centre, the CBD and on the other side the hospital, ambulance and fire station. 

There are three railway crossings within the township of Nyngan at the Moonagee Street crossing there are flashing lights and a pedestrian maze, at the Mitchell Street crossing boom gates, flashing lights and the pedestrian maze and at the Hoskins Street crossing just stop signs.

Trains whip through Nyngan at 80km/hr and the lack of adequate safety measures at each crossing has the community concerned – a petition obtained hundreds of signatures from locals. The Council has written on numerous occasions to the NSW Government, previous Transport Ministers, and the current Regional Transport Minister, John Holland Group, and the former Member for Barwon. Their concerns have fallen on deaf ears. 

They’ve now commissioned their own independent Risk Assessment which says something must be done. I’ve taken this issue up on behalf of the Council and the Nyngan community. 

When I posted on my Facebook page about my call for the Nyngan rail crossing to be upgraded a number of people started to get in contact with me about unsafe crossings in their communities. Tragic stories about people losing their lives at crossings without adequate safety measures. In NSW, the majority of rail crossings are classified as passive – meaning they only need to have a Stop or Give way sign, despite being in use. Every year there are over 1000 documented near misses from people ignoring these signs. 

There is currently a Petition on the NSW Parliament website “Improving safety at level crossings” started by the Fiancé of a man who lost his life at a level crossing that hadn’t been maintained and had poor ‘down the line’ visibility. I encourage you to sign so we can put pressure on the NSW Government to upgrade these unsafe crossings. I’ll also be taking this issue to the Parliamentary Road Safety committee I sit on.

FUNDING HIT FOR LOCAL SPORTS CLUBS

Congratulations to the eight Barwon sports clubs who will share in nearly $50,000 in funding thanks to the 2012-21 Local Sport Grant Program.

Our sports clubs have been hit hard in the last couple of years by drought and then last season mostly cancelled due to COVID-19 which means club funding for upgrades and new uniforms is a bit harder to pull together. This funding will see projects that Clubs have been fundraising towards for years funded, which takes a massive pressure off volunteer committees.

Sport in our communities is so much more than a game on the weekend. These clubs are essential in bringing people together – they’re a vital link in the social fabric of our towns.

Congratulations to the Committees of the following sports clubs: 

• Broken Hill Field and Game Association Inc. – 3,587.00 

• Broken Hill Swimming Club Inc. – 1,325.00 

• Condobolin JRLFC – 1,723.00 

• Golf Broken Hill Inc. – 15,000.00 

• Gulargambone Rugby – 3,302.00 

• Nyngan Junior Rugby League Club – 5,000.00 

• Tottenham Golf Club – 5,000.00 

• Warren Junior Netball – 15,000.00
