A dump point to allow motorhome and campervan drivers to empty effluent from theirvehicles will be installed in Canowindra as a way of encouraging more tourists to stop in thetown.Cabonne Council will build the effluent dump station near the entrance to its CanowindraCaravan Park and aims to have the project completed before the Canowindra Challengeballoon festival in April 2012.Mayor Bob Dowling said he hoped the additional facility would entice the owners of motorhomes, some of which can be almost 20 metres long, to stop in Canowindra.
“There is a trend for tourists travelling in these larger vehicles to plan their stops around towns
that offer these facilities and we hope they will spend some time in Canowindra, supporting
local businesses,” Cr Dowling said.
 The Mayor said research conducted by the Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australiashowed the recreational vehicle and camping market was worth more than $5 billion a year.
“According to the CMCA, more than 97% of RV owners make a purchase when they stop at atown,” he said.“The club publishes a list of RV friendly towns and maps of effluent dump sites and most of its62,000 members use the CMCA website and literature to plan their trips.”
 Cr Dowling said that after considering several sites within the town, an area near the caravan
park entrance adjacent to the Canowindra Men’s Shed was the preferred location.
 The Council will work within guidelines issued by the CMCA to suit the configurations of motorhomes and campervans which can range from 19.5m long to 8m.To provide the necessary vehicle manoeuvring and access area (indicated above), the roadwaywill be widened and a verge and screening built to separate the dump site from the access tothe dump site.

Toknow that so many people thought sohighly of Ralph is very humbling.To every person who spared a thought,sent a card, made a phone call, broughtaround food or just said hello; our familysays thank you. It is this support from thelocal and wider communities that mustremind all of us, that in times of sadness,the support from a community can helpyou through.Special thanks must go to Reverend Jonofor all he has done, to Tony & RaeleneWarne & staff at the Canowindra Hotel,Canowindra Lions Club and The Age ofFishes Museum Volunteers & Staff fororganising and donating the food for thewake.We ask that if anyone has a spare $10this Christmas, they make a donation to

It is disappointing that Canowindra onlyfeatured 3 times in the Member forDubbo's "The Soap Box", just received.Two of these acknowledged the success ofThe Age of Fishes Museum and the otherThe Old Vic Inn, respectively. The thirdreferred to the completion of a roadbridge.Not long ago Canowindra was consideredas being at the "a--- end " of CabonneShire, however current development worksin the town have come as a bit of a sur-prise.In the case of the Dubbo Electorate itlooks as though Canowindra is at thatsame "end" of the Electorate.Over the years there have been calls forCanowindra to secede from CabonneShire to join Cowra Shire. Now it appearsthat there are grounds also for Canowin-dra to secede from the Dubbo Electorateand join that of Burrinjuck, whose sittingmember Katrina Hodgkinson (of at least10 years) has proved a very worthy localMember of Parliament.Noticeable by its absence from the news-letter of the Member for Dubbo, is anyreference to funding to restore closed rail-way lines in the Dubbo Electorate. This isin sharp contrast to the efforts of theMember for Burrinjuck, over the Blayney/Cowra/Young/Demondrill line, currentlyunder way.This non-committal to rail redevelopmentin country NSW makes a mockery of thehype generated pre the March 2011State Election.Yours sincerely,Bill Barwood, Canowindra
