The Committee for Greater Shepparton hosted Federal Senator Kimberley Kitching for a regional visit on Wednesday. Senator Kitching toured SPC, had a trip on the Goulburn River with the Goulburn Broken CMA and picked some peaches from the tree at Dimits Orchard. All these experiences and interactions helped Senator Kitching develop an understanding of the importance of irrigated agriculture and the positive steps we are making in relation to the environmental health of the river in this part of the world. In addition to a lunch meeting with a diverse range of community stakeholders she also meet with Lisa McKenzie from the Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project, Richard Speed from La Trobe Shepparton Campus and Suzanna Sheed Independent MP for the District of Shepparton. We look forward to Senator Kitching’s ongoing interest in our region.
