Thumbs up to the organisers and workers for Nosh Narrabri. I attended all day on Saturday as a visitor and spoke to many people. It was fairly easy for me to identify unfamiliar faces – I have lived here all my life. And I got into conversation with people I didn’t recognise for a chat. They were from everywhere in northern NSW and the coast and very friendly. They were all very complimentary about Narrabri and the Nosh. They will be great ambassadors for our shire in the future.
Thumbs up to Narrabri having a university study hub. As one who has studied externally I can appreciate what a benefit this will be to students who are enrolled in remote study courses.

Have you missed an unexpected call from an overseas number? If so, chances are you’ve been targeted by the ‘Wangiri’ scam, Scamwatch advises. ‘Wangiri’ is a Japanese term which roughly means ‘one (ring) and cut’. In these scams, a scammer will call and hang up after only one ring so a missed call from an international number will appear on your phone. The scammers rely on you calling the number back in order to charge you a premium rate. The longer the scammers can keep you on the phone the more you are charged for the call. They may even put you on hold, play music or read a horoscope.If you receive a missed call from an unexpected international number like this, ignore it, advises Scamwatch.
‘Opponents of the coalition government have been bewailing the election result and warning of dire consequences for Australia” a Topical correspondent says. “it’s like the old saying ‘sack the voters for not doing the right thing.” Commentators have been saying look to socialist New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Adern for a model. If NZ is so wonderful how come 568,000 New Zealanders choose to live in Australia? And Jacinda is only in office because conservative Winston Peters’ NZ First party formed a coalition with NZ Labour.”
Photographer Bruce Malcolm has delved into his archives and retrieved negatives of the original 1969 Narrabri Festival. Bruce’s photos will be run in The Courier in coming weeks as Narrabri counts down to the Back to the Bri’ festival. There will be many familiar faces in them of not so long ago (OK, a long time ago).
