May 2020

  • 13 May 2020 - I can report the Forbes Shire community is doing really well with still no cases in our shire. I would like to thank everyone for taking the restrictions seriously so far.
  • 20 May 2020 - What a great week of beautiful weather and obviously everyone has taken advantage of walking around our beautiful lake. It is surprising how exciting it is that we can now eat out again. I haven’t yet, but will do so soon. Hopefully if all goes well the current 10 people allowed at restaurants will soon become 20.
  • 27 May 2020 - I will start with Target’s announcement of closing the Forbes store in mid 2021 and what I plan to do about it. I am very disappointed to hear this announcement and I have already written a submission to info@wesfarmers.com.au to ask the Chairman to reconsider his decision. I have included this email address in my column this week as I ask you to also email Wesfarmers and tell them how important our precious Target is to the people of Forbes. We have until mid 2021 to fight this good fight and I promise you I will do everything possible to get a win for Forbes!
