DISABILITY ACCESS AND INCLUSION PLAN
The Shire of Gnowangerup has recently completed an extensive consultation process with the local community. The information gathered has been used to develop a new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan for the district - The Shire of Gnowangerup Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2017 – 2021 (DAIP). This plan was endorsed by Council on Wednesday 22nd March 2017.

It has hairy grey/green foliage, and bright yellow flowers which are conspicuous in winter. The shrub is difficult to spot when not in flower. It grows on gravelly sandy clay loam soils , and is only found in a very area small area south east of Ongerup. Hibbertia priceana is named after a local farmer (Price).
SWIMMING COACH CLINIC
The Gnowangerup community would like to start a new Swim Club. Community members are invited to attend a Swimming Coaching Clinic provided by Swimming WA, with the view to helping start a local swim club.
VEHICLE CONCESSION CUT CAMPAIGN
The State Government is helping itself to your money. In the past, Local Councils were given reduced vehicle registrations, that will be scrapped from July 1, which means your rates bill could go up a truck load.
Helping Communities Rebuild after a Natural Disaster
BlazeAid works with families and individuals who are in genuine need of volunteer assistance. This includes those affected who are not insured or are under-insured for the cost of rebuilding their fences, or where their personal, physical or financial circumstances are such that they are in genuine need of BlazeAid’s assistance.
WANDRRA FUNDING FOR INDIVIDUALS/ SMALL BUSINESS AND PRIMARY PRODUCERS
The Western Australia Natural Disaster and Recovery Arrangements (WANDRRA) is jointly funded by the State and Commonwealth Governments and administered by the Office of Emergency Management (OEM), with assistance from other agencies. Through WANDRRA, the Western Australian and Commonwealth Governments provide help to people who have suffered the direct impact of a proclaimed natural disaster event.
Ideal for all gardeners - Thursday 30th March 2017 from 5:30pm - 8:30pm at the Gnowangerup Community Resource Centre.
GENTLE EXERCISE HOUR
Do you have limited mobility and want to do water based rehabilitation? Would you like to do some exercise but fear using your local Pool because you find it too busy?
Over the next few weeks a metal recycling company (J&P Group) will be recovering the metal from the Shire landfills.
They will begin recycling on Sunday 12th February in Gnowangerup and then move to Borden and Ongerup.
While JPs are in our Shire this could be an opportunity for others to recycle any metal stockpiles they may have.
For Further information please ring Darren Arrowsmith from JPs on (08) 9725 5050 or 0419 919 645
