TUESDAY MARCH 16 2021 NEWS 27 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA The breast news from bush pub A BREAST cancer fundraiser set up over a chicken parmigiana has raised more than $4000, with a dollar from every parmi sold at the Litchfield Outback Resorts Lil Ripper Cafe Bar and Bistro in February going to breast cancer research. Beginning after a disgruntled customer took offence at and reported a chicken schnitzel slogan saying How do you like your breasts, the bistro owners also held a chilli eating contest on the last day of the month, raising $1500, while XXXX Gold jumped on board donating a dollar from every schooner. Lil Ripper Cafe Bar and Bistro manager Roisin McElwee said it had been such a success it would likely return next year. Well do the chilli eating contest again next year and will probably do a fundraiser, this possibly will be an annual thing, she said. Thats even more positivity, that it will continue to raise funds for breast cancer research as the years go on. WILL ZWAR practical for a new committee to be elected and run the show. Given the time frame that the shows only eight weeks away its a pretty hard task to pull that off, she said. In the interests of the integrity of the association, to protect the membership and assets of the committee and I spoke to the government thats when we decided we wouldnt hold the show. A meeting will be held on March 31 to establish a new Freds Pass Rural Show. Freds Pass Show is off committee who will look to bring the show back in 2022. A special general meeting is to be held late March 2021 and the new committee will commence planning for a bigger and better Freds Pass Rural Show for 2022, complete with all the family favourites plus so much more, Ms Purick said. This show is one of the Top Ends most loved events. Ms Purick said it was disappointing for the community who took pride in showcasing produce and wares and enjoying the entertainment at the show each year. In recent years, the show has featured a Paddock to Plate event which was featured with nationally applauded chefs and the famous 50km feast, which is a Top End dining experience that indulges the tastebuds of locally sourced ingredients, including crocodile, she said. THE Freds Pass Rural Show has been cancelled this year after the sudden resignation of committee members. Member for Goyder and show patron Kezia Purick said conflict between committee members led to most resigning, leaving no one to coordinate the show, which has been running for more than 40 years. As I understand there was a breakdown in communications and conflict between committee members and about four of the committee resigned, Ms Purick said. There was going to be a gentleman as well who was chief of operations who resigned too it went from a team of eight to two. They didnt have a quorum or an organiser. With the show scheduled for May 22 and 23, it wasnt WILL ZWAR Conflict leads to organisers quitting A Gunn neighbourhood wants a locked gate to be installed on a walkway between Peckham Court and Chung Wah Terrace. Picture: Supplied CITY of Palmerston aldermen are expected to reject residents calls for a locked gate to be installed in a Gunn cul-de-sac at a council meeting tonight. In a petition tabled at a council meeting on January 29, residents from 24 properties called for a locked gate to be installed on a walkway between Peckham Court and Chung Wah Terrace to prevent uninvited individuals from opening the fence to perform illegal or suspicious behaviour in and around our houses. However, council officers have recommended access to the walkway should remain unchanged.
