DID you know that there is more to NNNW than meets
As a Neighbourhood Watch group, our general aims
are to identify, understand and address issues that affect
our local community safety. We try to educate the
community about practical ways to improve personal
and home security. We also try to promote community
well-being and increased feelings of safety by improving
community communication and collaboration.
But as an autonomous NHW group, we also extend
our focus by identifying and investigating current/topical
issues that are of concern to our local community, and
address these via newspaper articles, our website, our
Facebook page, and the Connecting Derwent Valley
Our website holds a library of our articles that have
appeared via local media over the past two years.
There are also extensive resources for young people
that include contact details and direct clickable links
to support networks; links to current legal resources

Sale hits new records
Large crowds and big demand at the Cleveland Pastoral annual sale.
RECORDS were broken at the
Shoobridge family’s annual on-farm sale
at Cleveland Pastoral, Ouse, last week
where a large crowd of buyers pushed
average prices to new levels.
Tom Shoobridge said a big crowd of
locals and repeat buyers, along with
strong mainland interest, saw prices jump
by about $500 a head compared to last
“It was the best crowd we’ve had here
for many years, so we went through quite
a lot of steak and beer,” he said.
About 900 homebred angus and angus
Hereford cross steer and heifer weaners
went under the hammer during the sale at
the property and made an overall average
Mr Shoobridge said they were very
pleased with the turnout and the sale
“The sale was better than we expected.
It was a good turnout too, a lot a buyer’s
here and a few from the mainland too,”
Mr Shoobridge said.
“We had a lot of repeat buyers here and
there was quite a bit of mainland interest
but the prices were a bit high for them so
they ended up buying about 125 heifers.”
Unlike large parts of the state that have
seen exceptional seasonal conditions, Mr
Shoobridge said a dry summer had meant
they had only received about 65mm of
rain on the property this year before last
A PETITION calling on the
State Government to address
health issues in the Derwent
Valley and Central Highlands has gathered more than
1400 signatures in about four
Petition organiser Bill Dermody said many people in the
area were unhappy that there
was nothing done to address
the “medical/health crisis’’.
Mr Dermody said he recently met Labor health spokesperson Dr Bastian Seidel to
discuss the issues impacting the provision of medical/
“I was impressed with his
listening and understanding
of the issues and was made
aware that Labor is focussing
on a policy to expand health
services in regional areas,’’
Mr Dermody said.
Sarah Courtney responded to the
Bill Dermody with the
Gazette that the Government
had boosted services provided at the New Norfolk District
Hospital in recent years.
“We are providing greater
access to hospital care closer to home, with seven more
beds opened at the New Nor-
folk District Hospital in 2017
(managed with the assistance
of a visiting specialist and
nurse practitioner) – meaning
more services are available for
sub-acute and stable acute patients within the Derwent Valley community,’’ Ms Courtney
“We have also recently
committed $3 million in additional support and incentives
for primary care services, including GPs, to provide after-hours services for their
local communities, which will
maximise opportunities for
lower level care to be provided outside of hospitals.
“While the Australian Government is responsible for
setting the national Medicare
classifications, we will always
look at what more we can do
to provide Tasmanian communities with improved access to
regional health services.’’
