Renewable Newstead

State Minister for Energy and Resources Lily D’Ambrosio attended an event at Newstead Primary School last Thursday where she announced a $200,000 grant for local group Newstead 2021.  

The group will use the funding to develop a model that will see 100% of the town’s energy coming from renewable resources.  This will involve working closely with business, government bodies and the local community.     

Show - Can you Help?

All across the country, going to the local agricultural show is a long-standing Australian  tradition.  The animals,  the children’s attractions, the exhibits – everything from paintings to fruit cakes to floral arrangements – make for a great family day out.  

This year, the Maldon & Baringhup Agricultural Society is looking forward to running the 152nd Show. The Society is keen to attract some community support.  The Society’s AGM has been held over until Wednesday 11 March (8pm at the Maldon Community Centre) to give local residents the opportunity to consider nominating for a position on the Committee.
