Last week members of our State and Federal Parliamentary teams made their way to Gunnedah to spend three days under fantastic blue skies to meet visitors and store holders at the nation’s largest agricultural show.
Similar to previous years, there was much interest in The Nationals’ shed with people from across the state stopping by to have a yarn with MPs, rest their feet or enjoy one of our famous Teys steak sandwiches.
As the only Party dedicated to serving the people of regional NSW, the annual AgQuip Field Days is an important event for The Nationals’ and gives us the opportunity to bring together MPs and reach out to the local and agricultural communities.
NSW Nationals Leader, Troy Grant, along with Kevin Anderson, Andrew Fraser, Adam Marshall, Michael Johnsen, Kevin Humphries, Niall Blair and Sarah Mitchell as well as our Federal Leader, Barnaby Joyce, Deputy Leader Fiona Nash, Mark Coulton and John Williams all took time out of their busy schedules to attend. Together they spoke to hundreds of visitors over the three days to discuss issues facing their communities.
Once again our steak sandwich stall was a huge success. Local state member Kevin Anderson was in charge of the barbeque and hungry people lined up to receive the tastiest snack at AgQuip. As always, all money made from the stall was donated to Mackellar Care in Gunnedah and together with the teams from Baldwin Filters and Tillys Crawler Parts we raised a whopping $1847.50.
Thanks must go to our dedicated team who worked tirelessly to ensure the event went off without a hitch. After a successful AgQuip 2016 we’re looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
