Community and business leaders gathered at Coogle Cottage on Monday morning for a breakfast with Upper House member Sam Farraway.
The gathering, facilitated by the Narrabri branch of the National Party, saw Mr Farraway make his first post-lockdown visit to the town.
Welcoming Mr Farraway back to Narrabri, branch chair Jocellin Jansson thanked him for his continuous focus on the shire.
Ms Jansson also praised his role in getting the initial mass vaccination centre, held at The Crossing Theatre in Narrabri.
These sentiments were echoed by Narrabri Shire Council mayor Ron Campbell who made mention of Mr Farraway’s accessibility.
Mr Farraway said he was excited to hit the road throughout western NSW to meet community and business leaders.
He reflected on the positive impact the expected bumper winter crop would have on areas including Narrabri in addition to the big developments on the horizon in the form of the Inland Port, Inland Rail and Narrabri gas project.
“There is so much opportunity in Narrabri,” he told the breakfast gathering.
“It’s got a very bright future.”
Mr Farraway also praised the shire community’s effort in getting vaccinated.
He particularly paid tribute to the community leaders who rallied to organise the mass vaccination centre which he supported in addition to federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton.
