Government agencies provide support to Upper Lachlan residents

Major road works to repair or replace bridges in the Upper Lachlan Shire have begun, but there is still a concern for animal welfare and mental well-being in the community.

On Friday, September 13 representatives from government agencies will be at the Bigga Golf Club to give information to those affected by the bridge load limits.
