Leaders Highfield United traveled down to third-placed Stradbally Town knowing that a win would edge them ever closer to glory.But Stradbally took a lead by half time through Colin Beale. If they had held on, it would have cut Highfield’s lead to just three points but the Birr men turned things around in the second half to win 2-1.Elsewhere in the division, O’Moore FC cemented their control on second place as Terry Lawless, Colin Finn and Eoin Fitzpatrick were on target in a 3-1 win over Killoe FC.

Service centre secures premier position at business park

first_imgService centre secures premier position at business park The sky’s the limit for Armidale Airside Business Park as stage one takes off with anchor tenant, Outlook Property Services, to establish a prominent service centre with fuel and food outlets.New occupant, Outlook Property Services, has secured a premier position at the entrance to the precinct on the New England Highway, to construct a modern service centre experience for travellers, connecting through to convenience food outlets and rest areas.Armidale Regional Council Mayor Ian Tiley said the sale of the service centre is a major step in building economic momentum for the Armidale region.“The service centre is expected to introduce more than 40 full-time employment opportunities to Armidale when fully operational, and will complement other potential investments at the precinct.”The centre is expected to include 24-hour service, branded food outlets with drive-thru, rest and fatigue facilities, internal food court, outdoor food areas and caravan and trailer parking facilities.“The architectural design of the service centre really sets the tone for other developers and businesses considering investing in the region,” said Cr Tiley.“The premium airside fully serviced and NBN ready lots offer flexible sizes, B-Double access and are competitively priced. It’s very attractive commercial property that will bring new industry to the region, create jobs and provide much needed economic stimulus, particularly as we plan for a new world post pandemic,” he said.Outlook Property Services Chief Executive Officer Peter Breckenridge said the prospect of investing in the Armidale region is exciting.“Armidale is strategically placed, half-way between Sydney and Brisbane and has one of the highest forecasts for population growth over the next twenty years in regional NSW.”“These attributes, combined with the region’s educated workforce and renewable energy resources, make it an attractive place to invest,” said Mr Breckenridge.A development application for the multi-million dollar investment is imminent, and Council is currently in negotiations with a number of other potential investors for light industrial land lots at Airside Business Park.Sale of the land to Outlook Property Services is one of the first of 24 lots to be released on the market under Stage 1 development. The precinct is well exposed to the New England Highway, a visible thoroughfare at the entrance of town and over one million vehicular movements per annum.The development is a key pillar of Council’s economic development strategy and has been made possible with a $6 million grant from the NSW Government Growing Local Economies Fund to install roads, water mains, telecommunications, National Broadband Network and other infrastructure at the site. /Public Release.

Mayor supports Headspace petition

first_imgMayor supports Headspace petition Kiama CouncilMayor Mark Honey has thrown his support behind a petition to the Australian Government to consider funding for a new Headspace service in Kiama.Clr. Honey has encouraged others to sign the petition, initiated by the Member for Kiama, Gareth Ward MP.“Given the spike in youth suicides in our community, having a local Headspace service in Kiama would provide vital support to our local young people,” Clr. Honey said.“A Headspace service would provide education to increase awareness, understanding and provide the skills for young people, as well as their families, friends and wider community, to help support their mental health.”Clr. Honey said the nearest Headspace services were in Wollongong and Nowra, leaving a significant gap in coverage for the region.“The Headspace services in Wollongong and Nowra do a magnificent job, but are fully occupied with their local communities, and find it difficult to support our area.”“Further, having access to local support is especially important for young people, who cannot easily travel out of their area, and prefer a familiar face to talk to.”Clr. Honey said alternatives such as providing Headspace support remotely over the internet had been trialled but proven unsuccessful.Clr. Honey also said funding a Headspace service in Kiama could also provide other support services for young people such as relationships, drug and alcohol, work and study, and local employment opportunities.“We have a responsibility to do everything we possibly can to provide the necessary access to services and support for our young people, especially those who are vulnerable and at-risk.”“I encourage our community to support this initiative and sign the petition.”You can sign the petition online at:www.garethwardmp.com.au/headspace_service_in_kiamaImage: Gareth Ward MP for Kiama launching Headspace Petition with the Mayor of Kiama Mark Honey and local artist Sam Hall /Public Release.

Delegates from 114 countries agrees to take action against tuberculosis

first_img Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals releases first “Comprehensive Textbook of COVID-19” By Sanjiv Das on November 18, 2017 The announcement came at the first WHO global ministerial conference in MoscowIn an attempt to eradicate Tuberculosis (TB) by 2030, delegates from 114 countries have agreed to take urgent action to end the world’s deadliest disease. The announcement came at the first WHO global ministerial conference in Moscow on ending tuberculosis.“Today marks a critical landmark in the fight to end TB,” said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General. “It signals a long overdue global commitment to stop the death and suffering caused by this ancient killer,” Ghebreyesus said.Global efforts to combat TB have saved an estimated 53 million lives since 2000 and reduced the TB mortality rate by 37 per cent. However, progress in many countries has stalled, global targets are off-track, and persistent gaps remain in TB care and prevention. As a result, TB still kills more people than any other infectious disease. There are major problems associated with antimicrobial resistance, and it is the leading killer of people with HIV.“One of the main problems has been a lack of political will and inadequate investment in fighting TB,” Ghebreyesus said. “Today’s declaration must go hand-in-hand with increased investment,” he added.
