Friends of the Monaro Rail Trail are asking for the community to sign their petition.

The petition is aiming to seek support from Member for Monaro John Barilaro.

They are calling upon Barilaro to support the campaign to develop a recreational corridor for cyclists, walkers and runners along the disused rail corridor from Queanbeyan to Bombala.

The petition has already received over 400 signatures.

The group say the trail could bring an estimated $15 million annually into local economies.

Representatives from Bendigo bank, along with Council’s support, will be holding a public forum on April 5th to provide more information on Bendigo Bank coming to Bombala.

Bombala LRC members, Gabby Rea and Steve Goodyer along with administrator for Snowy Monaro Regional Council Dean Lynch met with Bendigo Bank recently, and discussed how implementing the bank would be beneficial to the wider Bombala community.

Due to the upcoming closure of the Westpac Bombala branch, it is felt that the community needs more than one bank, and a bank that is open five days a week.

Dean Lynch says the option of a community bank could be a good fit for Bombala because potential profits will flow back into the community while providing an essential service.
