See you all there!

Therewill be plenty of activity at Murrurundi on October 24 with the unveiling of a story board to acknowledge the history of the railway at the top end of our shire.

With the extensive effort of the Rotary Club and the enthusiasm of secretary Col Stanford and members, the interest will be very acceptable and whet the appetite for more of the history.

TheBush Fire Danger period has started in the Upper Hunter Shire from September 1.

UpperHunter Shire households, schools and community groups are invited to join hundreds of thousands of people across the country on Saturday, October 24 in hosting a garage sale as a part of the fifth annual Garage Sale Trail.

An award-winning community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail is powered by over 150 local councils and is expecting over 10,000 garage sales to be held across the country.

By organising communities around Australia to hold garage sales on the same day, it aims to reduce waste to landfill and promote reuse.

Registration is free by visiting 梧桐夜网garagesaletrail南京夜网419论坛 and includes a seller webpage that can be personalised by naming the garage sale and listing items that will be for sale on the day.

There’s also a whole swag of tips and tools available to help sellers promote their sales locally.

The first 2500 people who register before September 25 will receive a seller pack with lots of goodies to ensure a successful garage sale.

I cannow tick another thing off my bucket list.

I climbed to the top of Burning Mountain in Wingen with a group of walkers from Merriwa.

We are finding new places to explore in our shire which makes life even more interesting.

It is a great activity and I am finding it’s not for the faint hearted.

It willbe school holidays before too long, therefore there will be plenty of activity for that fortnight.

Stay up to date with what ishappening in the shire by visiting the council’s website 梧桐夜网upperhun ter.nsw.gov419论坛.

It is certainly great to feel the spring weather and enjoy all the newness of the blossom and new life of the baby animals.

It makes one glad to be alive.
