2020 BINGARA HAPPY DAYS ORANGE FESTIVAL – POSTPONED UNTIL 2021

Due to restrictions in place regarding COVID-19, it is with great sadness that the organisers of the 2020 Bingara Happy Days Orange Festival have made the tough call to postpone the festival to 2021.

Organisers understand how important the event is for the Bingara community, retailers and businesses, as well as the stallholders, suppliers and performers who partake in the festival; and for this reason have held off making the decision in hopes of a miraculous resolution to the COVID-19 situation.

Following announcements in Friday’s Cabinet meeting it became apparent that restrictions would not ease enough to allow for such an event.

A fantastic line-up of performers and attractions had been sourced for this year’s festival however; rest assured these acts will be back in 2021 ready and rearing to rock your socks off.

Organisers will be working with the Bingara Central School and RSL Sub-branch to come up with creative ways of continuing the Orange Picking tradition and paying respect to our fallen soldiers. This will be communicated in due course.

Stall holders who have already booked and paid for a site will be contacted by the 30th May 2020 to arrange a refund.

In the meantime, mark Friday the 25th to Sunday 27th June 2021 in your calendar, and we look forward to welcoming you back for the 2021 Bingara Happy Days Orange Festival.

For more information please contact Georgia Standerwick on 0409 901 540.

Naroo Frail Aged Care Facility – Gwydir Shire Council COVID-19 Precautions UPDATED 25/03/2020

As of Thursday 26th March 2020 Naroo Frail Aged Care Facility will be going into voluntary lock down.

This has been a difficult decision but it is imperative to keep our residents as safe and healthy as possible.

This decision has been made on recent information of confirmed COVID-19 cases within the area, and in consultation with local Medical staff and Gwydir Shire Council. All families/carers will be contacted in regards to this decision.

We are very aware of social isolation and are working hard with the IT department to set up Skype and utilise FaceTime so that relatives can remain in contact with their loved ones.

Essential travel to Medical appointments will continue and residents will be assessed on an individual basis.

Families will be contacted on a regular basis by staff to let them know how their loved ones are coping. All staff will be screened at the beginning of each shift to ensure they are fit for work.

If in the event that one of our residents becomes very ill and requires palliative care, visitors will be allowed ensuring infection control measures are kept in place.

We hope this crisis passes quickly and that our residents, families and staff at Naroo remain healthy and safe.

We also thank you all for your understanding and patience during this time.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Aged Care Manager Sharon Baker 0267291314 or Mobile 0437134501 for any concerns or queries.
