Just a quick word from me on what has been going on over the last few months.

October was all about getting out on country and visiting people. I was able to get to Laura, Coen and Lockhart, and gain a greater understanding of NRM initiatives being undertaken. I had not been able to visit some places for a long time, so seeing the country and meeting people was a wonderful experience.
