A humble thank you
MANY thanks to those who put their names to a message of support in last week's Derwent Valley Gazette. I value your support and will send my personal thanks to each, in addition to this public acknowledgement. I have been overwhelmed by the many kind messages of support received, and I hope that I may be able to return the favour by providing you with effective representation on the council after the election results are known next week.
The Gordon Dam at the furthest corner of the municipality is one of the jewels of our area
We are very fortunate to have Tasmania's equal oldest national park in our municipality. Its centenary will be celebrated in 2016.
Dick Adams MHR has been kind enough to launch both volumes of the recent Derwent Valley history books we have produced locally.
In 2001 I travelled to England at my own expense to bid for the right to host the 2008 World Gathering of Norfolk and Norwich here in the Derwent Valley. During this interview on BBC Radio Norwich, it was announced that our bid had been successful
During my visit to Norwich, the chief city in the county of Norfolk, I was officially welcomed by the chairman of the County Council who probably didn't think signing the official visitors book was as funny as I seem to have done
