Continuous storms, dirt roads out, Dareton Markets ...

Good morning all,

Well the continuous storms are making travelling difficult. And really putting out all the dirt roads.

My advice to you all, if you are travelling, please go into the Local Government (Shire) website that you are travelling in and check out their Road report, they are accurate.

Most of this area out here is the Central Darling Shire, read their Road Report on the website and it is up to date and accurate.

For the Broken Hill and outback area, Broken Hill City Council is what you need for guidance. Please be very careful of using “Live Traffic”. It can be very misleading.

Having said that, the Barrier Highway from Broken Hill to Cobar will not be cut by flood water at Wilcannia in the foreseeable future, no chance.

What’s on, we have Remembrance Day in most all centres next Friday, and you are all welcome wherever you end up.

The Dareton Markets are on the 12th. for everyone to enjoy.

And the Official Opening of the revamped Wilcannia Golf Course is taking place on Saturday the 19th. at 10 AM, followed by morning tea and lunch, an Ambrose competition and an enjoyable afternoon.

Now the Broken Hill Art Gallery also has a lot to offer in the next few weeks, so drop in and have a browse around and enjoy.

As you know all dirt roads are a no go at the moment, but the Shire web sites will keep you posted.

Not a lot to report really, but drop in and say hi, we’d love to see you.

Till we talk again, cheers, Bill Elliott. WCTA.
