In The Courier this week

Macclesfield’s annual Anzac twilight service, traditionally held on the Sunday before Anzac Day, drew its strongest crowd yet, with about 350 turning out to pay their respects.


Asylum seeker houses for sale

The 80 refurbished homes in the recently vacated Inverbrackie detention facility near Woodside will be sold as one lot.
Expressions of interest in the Federal Government property will open in the coming months.
Most of the houses were built in the 1980s to accommodate the families of Department of Defence personnel from the neighboring 16th Air Land Regiment, which will continue to operate after the sale.
The houses were given a $10m upgrade as part of the establishment of the detention facility in December 2010 after being empty for many years due to a change in policy to house defence  employees in the community.
