A short thank-you note
A QUICK post to acknowledge the messages of goodwill received since announcing my candidature for the Derwent Valley Council, in particular the offers of places for posters to be erected. I've long been of the opinion that election billboards are a blot on the landscape, so I will gratefully decline those offers. However, I have been told about a small poster seen in the window of a gold coloured Rover. Who could that be?
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
