School holiday activities cancelled

Forbes Shire Council has made the decision to cancel its planned school holiday activities due to this week’s flooding.

Council had organised a Pop-up Art Workshop tomorrow followed by a Theatre Sports and Improv Workshop and a Spectacular Screenings Movie night on Friday, September 30.

Mayor Phyllis Miller said it was extremely regrettable but in light of the current situation, Council feels the activities do need to be cancelled.

“We apologise for the inconvenience but we will be planning a range of activities for the Christmas holidays,” Mayor Miller said.

To provide some fun activities for children during the holidays, Forbes welcomed the PCYC Mobile Van and are set up in Victoria Park.

They will be in Forbes until tomorrow afternoon.

“The PCYC mobile van has Xboxs, televisions, footballs and loads more,” Mayor Miller said.
