Great to have education minister James Merlino address our AGM dinner - the Shepparton Education Plan is an exciting development for our region and we look forward to more progress toward a better education future for all of our young people.
To paraphrase Pink Floyd in a contradictory way 'we do need education - hey Minister, don't leave them kids alone'!

Rail, road and air. Is there support for an international air freight hub based in the Goulburn Valley? Has anyone spoken to John Wagner who built Brisbane West airport freight hub? There is another secret ingredient we may have all forgotten that Shepparton can't live out- irrigation water.
