I am in the process of compiling a second book on Families/Town history of Narooma.
The first book 'Noorooma Our Town Our Stories' was a great success and upon its launch earlier this year it was suggested that a few other people would like to submit stories.
To ensure the second book is as successful as the first I am calling on all those who would like to submit a story to please send it through to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What did your family do in Narooma?
When and Why did they choose to come to Narooma?
What do you remember about the early days? What do you miss around the town?
Is there a special story you would like to record about an event or community club or adventure.
The history of our town and your memories are important and should be recorded.
I look forward to receiving your story!
COVID Disaster payment concern
The Federal Treasurer announced on Sunrise that the COVID Disaster Payment will be phased out as we reach vaccination targets of 70 per cent.
The money will then no longer automatically flow, with only those living in Commonwealth declared virus 'hotspots" able to apply for the cash each week.
The changes will put pressure on state premiers to avoid lockdowns and reopen borders when vaccination targets are met.
Currently, 1.7 million people receive this payment.
Is the Government trying to pretend that most people will be able to immediately return to paid employment?
Many people will be forced to rely on the woeful $45 a day Jobseeker.
The Government should explain how the people are expected to get by on this paltry amount.
