$1.72 million on offer for environmental projects

John Williams The Nationals Member for Murray-Darling is encouraging local community groups, schools, Aboriginal organisations and state and local government organisations to apply for $1.72 million in grants on offer for environmental projects.

Mr Williams said the latest round of Environmental Trust funding made available by Environment Minister Robyn Parker would support projects under the Protecting our Places, Environmental Education, Eco Schools and Food Gardens in Schools programs.

“I am delighted that the Minister has added a new program for this round of funding, offering for the first time the Food Gardens in Schools program.” Ms Parker said Food Gardens in Schools has been introduced in recognition of an exciting trend that has been developing over the last few years.

Driver reviver -- also a place to catch up with old mates

Wilcannia Driver Reviver ran throughout the Easter weekend.Bob Peterson and Dennis Bulldog Williams at Driver Reviver

The word appears to have travelled that the roads out here are not cut by floodwaters and the amount of traffic on the road was considerable.

Early indications are that more people used the service this year than in 2011.

Local Bob Peterson came down for an espresso coffee and met up with former local Dennis “Bulldog” Williams who was visiting town.

The van was manned by volunteers, from the Tourist Association SES and Rural Fire Service. It was noted this year that there were a lot less negative comments about Wilcannia.
