Community Recognition for the Bargo Men's Shed
I am extremely pleased to recognise the work and foresight of Dave Clayton of the Bargo Men's Shed, who with Patrick Nellestein of River Road Creative Academy made a submission for the old Dilly Wanderer bus to be retained by the community and repurposed into a mobile music lesson and community asset. The bus will stay in community hands and deliver great outcomes for a large area with so little public transport. I thank Councillor Beverley Spearpoint, whose determination made the idea of donating the bus versus selling it for little value a reality. It is an amazing win for our community for the young and old. I look forward to recording one of my upcoming podcasts on the bus once it is fitted out and finalised.
