    Coming to the end of ceremonies and events to mark the centenary of World War I. Today I was at the launch of an exhibition at Albury Council called 'Albury's Armistice Celebration', which looks at Albury at the time of the armistice, and the impact locally of the war. This wonderful exhibition was organised by the Albury Library/Museum in collaboration with the 8/13th Victorian Mounted Rifles Regimental Collection. PIC: Local historian Lieutenant Colonel Douglas Hunter OAM RFD (RTD), Vicky Cooper for the museum, and Graham Docksey OAM, Albury councillor and past President of the City of Albury RSL Sub-Branch. #RSL AlburyCity

    While we tend to know a bit about what's going on in our own schools, or our children's schools, sometimes we miss the picture about everyone else's schools. Public education has been a focus of mine, and you might know how I have been chasing a new hall for James Fallon High School, and for upgrades at other schools. If you love public education, take a look at this 1 minute video. Many thanks for your time and interest!

    At the AGM for Holbrook Meals on Wheels Service today. What an enthusiastic group! They do much more than deliver meals, and offer real support for their community. During the 2017-18 year they provided a service to 85 people, delivered 8936 meals to people who use their service and 1327 meals to Intereach clients. In August last year they applied for a NSW grant to purchase a vehicle. I was pleased to help in the process through which money was provided (a Community Building Partnership grant). Well done Holbrook Meals on Wheels Service on another wonderful year! All the best to President Ian Harpley, Manager Sue Winnett and the team.

    This stuff is important. Here. Yesterday, the Deputy Premier announced five priority areas which will be funded under the $4.2 billion Snowy Hydro Legacy Fund within regional NSW. The priority areas for this government are: • Water security – Dams and pipelines are a key priority and work is already underway on water security projects to enable NSW to better manage our most precious resource (including the Lake Rowlands to Carcoar 12km pipeline announced this week). • Rail and road passenger connectivity - New technology and track upgrades to provide faster passenger rail services. • Freight linkages – New technology and track upgrades to provide faster freight rail services as well as expanding air freight capacity and infrastructure. • Regional digital connectivity – Exploring the development of regional data hubs, high capacity “backbone” data links from regional centres to Sydney, connectivity to help agribusiness improve productivity and better access to reliable data speeds that will help businesses save money and improve services through technology. • Special Activation Business Precincts – Funding the next stages of the Parkes Special Activation Precinct investigations, including planning and environmental studies to make it quicker and easier for government to establish additional precincts. These precincts provide ready for construction land, streamlined planning approvals and targeted financial incentives to attract interstate and overseas investors, creating new jobs and flow on business in regional NSW.

    My October 2018 community newsletter is going out now. Should be in your letterbox this week. It's also available as a download from gregaplin.com.au. This edition shows how the flood of money from the NSW Government to the regions is being used right across the Albury Electorate, from Corowa to Tumbarumba, Henty to Lavington. It was $172 million towards active projects when the newsletter was prepared, but we can add a further $9.9 million today towards the Ettamogah industrial area. This will also include new on and off ramps at Davey Road onto the Hume, which is part of the government's planning for traffic management as the residential zone moves ever north.

    Cycling is really taking off in Tumbarumba, and the Pump Track is just a part of it which I have been pleased to support with a NSW grant of $149,500. A second project is construction of new, sustainable mountain bike trails, which received $17,000 towards those costs. Many people play a role in obtaining this kind of funding and keeping local sports clubs and healthy activities in action. Well done all!

    Next instalment of my video newsletter: what the NSW Government is building in health for Albury. Health is a major issue for all who live in regional areas. In recent years I've been pushing for solutions to concerns such as overcrowding in the Emergency Department, the hydrotherapy pool breakdown, finding funding for the Carer Accommodation Centre and so on. Lots of progress. This video will only take a minute of your time, but it's important we all know what is happening -- even if it is still in the planning phase. Other great results -- such as the new ambulance station -- are up and running. But health infrastructure is, of necessity, time consuming to plan and to fit within a running hospital! NSW Health
