The Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW, Skills and Small Business, John Barilaro, will visit Parkes this weekend as part of an electorate-wide visit to the Orange electorate.
Mr Barilaro will be attending the AstroFest lectures and opening of the David Malin Astronomy Awards photography display at the Parkes Radio Telescope on Sunday, July 16.
The Deputy Premier will be accompanied by the Parliamentary Secretary for Western NSW, Rick Colless.
Together they will be available to meet with members of the Parkes business community, farming and livestock producers, and members of the community at the Dish Cafe from 12.30pm that day.
“It is important that all sections of the community fully understand the direction the new leadership of the government is taking NSW,” Mr Colless said.
“There are some exciting new funding programs bringing serious money to regional NSW which I am sure the Deputy Premier will bring people up to speed with on Sunday.
“John Barilaro is absolutely committed to improving the infrastructure and community facilities throughout regional NSW.
“This will be an opportunity for those community groups to crystallise their ideas for moving their communities forward.”
Lunch will be available from the Dish Cafe for community members wishing to meet with the Deputy Premier.
Mr Barilaro and Mr Colless will be stopping in at the Vandenberg Hotel in Forbes to meet with the public at 12.30pm on Saturday. And will be in Orange and Canowindra on Monday.
