There may have been holidays this week for the race that ‘stops the nation’ and the ever popular Ballarat Show but there was no let up in the news which went on around our region.
Politicians continued their unrelenting campaigning for the prized seats of Wendouree, Buninyong and Ripon and the promises of largess keep rolling in.
To help you make your choice, and pre-polling opens on Monday, check out our stories where we have collated these promises by subject area here .
But there was plenty else happening and the stories below show just a little of the good news and amazing stories of what is occurring in a growing Ballarat. There is no doubt Ballarat is changing. Fabulous things are happening and people have great stories to tell. But there are also those who are being left behind by the pressures of this growth and issues which continue to demand our attention.
Our job is to keep you informed with up-to-date information on the full picture of what is happening across your city.
That is why people keep coming back to The Courier and what we are dedicated to bringing you.
