In this week's Reporter

This week Wollondilly cartoonist Scott Rigney has put his flair on the ‘Roadmap to Freedom’ announced by the NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian.

It’s a welcome diversion that hopefully will make you smile and ponder what October will look like.

The premier is adamant that if the majority of us have our double vaccine dose and numbers reach 70 per cent – we can expect a number of restrictions to be eased.

There are so many people looking forward October.

Sadly, the lockdown has also exacerbated many issues that have risen to the surface. The lack of affordable housing and the shrinking affordable rental market. It’s also shone a torch on loneliness especially among the elderly.

It’s also true to say, a group of special people are helping the community in their own way.

One that comes to mind is Picton Rotary $50 Cakes or Pay it Forward – it will brighten up your day or a covid hero’s day.

Turning Point Camden is also assisting those individuals and families who have fallen through the cracks during these hard times. The community spirit is shining through.

Again the Lockdown Quiz is sure to make you forget about everything – even if it’s for a few minutes. Here’s a sample – can you lick your elbow? (Did you have a go!)

If you are stuck at home and live in the Camden local government area, it might be the right time to sort through some photos and see if there’s anything in your collection that Camden Museum might like –it has to be about the local area with accompanying details. Any old photos with a story would be appreciated. Back Then this week is about a photo taken in the early part of the 20th Century along Camden’s main street. Spot the difference from 1914 to now. Stay safe.
