Oakes Oval gets official opening

IT WAS terrific to officially open the $3 million redevelopment of the expanded Oakes Oval on the weekend.

Council came to me a couple of years ago to help with an upgrade. This was to ensure Oakes Oval maintained its position as a premier sporting facility.

The upgrade included a larger oval, new grandstands, upgraded change rooms and a new electronic scoreboard.

It being a regional sports facility ensures people travel to our community for events, they spend money and help maintain jobs here.

  • We all know a family member or friend whose life has been destroyed by drugs.

We announced this week, $1 million to fund the Dob in a Dealer program.

This program works in getting drug dealers off our streets. We don't want our young exposed to these life-threatening drugs.

I encourage everyone to anonymously contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at www.

  • We are helping to improve the lives of those living with diabetes and hepatitis C by making two treatments more affordable.

Rather than as much as $50,000 for a course of Maviret and around $930 per year for Ryzodeg, the PBS listing mean patients will pay a maximum of $39.50 per script or just $6.40 per script for concessional patients, including pensioners.
