Solar Still Makes Sense in 2020

Solar Still Makes Sense in 2020

Solar Energy in Australia has been a story of significant growth over the decade. Since 2009 cumulative capacity of Solar in Australia has grown from nearly zero to 18,583,305 KWs in June 2020 (as per the Australian PV Institute). To put that into context that is enough power to run an off the shelf light bulb for around 371,666,100 hours. But, is it still worth it to by Solar for your home or Business in 2020?

Hot Kitchen Trends This Year

The kitchen is considered the heart of every home. With everyone forced to stay indoors to slow down the spread of COVID-19, kitchens are seeing more traffic than any place in the house.  In addition to preparing meals, most people prefer to eat, talk, and even work at the kitchen table, a reason you might want to consider a kitchen renovation. Depending on the condition of your kitchen, a few simple upgrades should give it a fresh new look and improved functionality.

Butler calls on the NSW Government to waive car rego fees

Butler calls on the NSW Government to waive car rego fees

Member for Barwon, Roy Butler is adding his voice to calls for car registration waivers saying motorists shouldn’t be slogged with car registration fees while we’re being told to stay off the roads.

“The cost of car registration is one of the big bills households face every year – alongside mortgages, rent, and energy bills.

“We’ve seen support announced by banks for mortgage holders, protections for renters announced by government, and energy companies supporting their customers with rebates and payment extensions.

Provenance toolkit to help rural businesses stand out from the crowd

Provenance toolkit to help rural businesses stand out from the crowd

Agrifutures Australia

When it comes to food and fibre, consumers want to know who produced it, where it was produced and how it was produced. New AgriFutures Australia funded work not only confirms that building provenance through storytelling is a critical strategy for bringing brands and products to life, but also offers the practical tools to help small business achieve it. 

The provenance toolkit, developed by agricultural market research and digital marketing experts Honey and Fox, offers a suite of practical resources available for download via the AgriFutures Australia website. The toolkit is aimed at Australian producers who want to build an impactful provenance narrative for their food and fibre business and share it with current and prospective clients. 

Sharing your product’s origin story, history or journey to market is a powerful way to connect with your consumers and differentiate brands in the market. It’s an approach that can play a critical role in sustaining, increasing or expanding market share.

GrainCorp eyes rebound as farmers plant biggest crops in six years

GrainCorp eyes rebound as farmers plant biggest crops in six years

Sydney Morning Herald

New GrainCorp chief executive Robert Spurway says the company is well placed to bounce back from the devastating drought that has slashed Australia's wheat production, with some farmers planting their biggest grain crops in at least six years.

Mr Spurway, a former chief operating officer of Fonterra's global operations, said the ASX-listed grain giant would be able to handle the much larger grain crop expected this year and could reopen mothballed storage facilities if needed.

Roy's Column

Roy's Column

Roy Butler MP Member for Barwon

After the year we’re having it’s important to stop and ask yourself and those around you R U OK?

On 10 September as a Nation we come together and ask that question, but it’s important that we keep asking and keep checking in with each other. Times are getting better in Barwon, the crops are looking great and the stock numbers are back on the rise – but never assume that this means mentally everyone’s OK. So ask the question R U OK? and be prepared to stop, listen and provide support.

This past weekend I have been on the road with the Police from the Western Region as part of the 10th Annual Wall to Wall Police Remembrance ride. Every day the members of the NSW Police Force go to work not knowing what to expect, sadly some never come home from their shift. To the Police right across Barwon, stay safe out there and thank you for what you do.

This week I am heading back into Parliament, following the events of last week its sure to be heavy on the politicking.

Check on your strong friends, check on your quiet friends, check on your happy friends, check on each other.

Roy

2020 Walgett Show Update

While there is still uncertainty with restrictions from COVID-19 a potential date for the 2020 Walgett Show has been found in the 19th-20th September 2020

"While we don't know what will be happening down the track, following discussions of options and also looking at the timing of other local events, the 19th and 20th September is the weekend we could find for a potential postponed Walgett Show this year.

We realise that things are uncertain with COVID-19 and it might  not be possible or safe for a Walgett Show to go ahead at that time, but for now we have a potential new date and will see how things go and keep you posted.

We are thinking of everyone during this challenging time and appreciate the encouragement and assistance from the ASC od NSW and Group 1 (North West Shows) our Showmen's Guild people, Walgett Shire Council and all of our valued supporters and participants and the community".
