YOU can really get to know
someone over a cup of coffee,
and with so many fantastic
cafes and restaurants in the
Riverland there are always
ample opportunities to catch up
over a ‘cuppa joe’.
And in an age that is
dominated by social media, it
is more important than ever to
put down your mobile, ignore
Facebook for a moment and get
back to actually having a face-
With the weather finally
cooling down, the idea of
sipping a warm beverage is all
the more appealing.
Think comfy outfits, beanies
and scarves and keeping cosy
while it grows cold outside.
A cup of coffee is the perfect
catch-up, conversation starter.
Whether it’s meeting with an
old friend or a chance to get to
know someone new.
Trying to make conversation
with someone you’ve just met
can sometimes be awkward, but
having that cup of coffee on the
table ready to sip to fill a silence
is always comforting.
If there is someone in your life
who you have drifted apart from
then why not give them a call
and reconnect with them once
more? It really is that simple.

or catch up with loved ones.
Money goes to waste...
MORE than $47 million will be
invested in the extension of wastewater
management over the next 10 years to
support the installation of infrastructure
in SA regional towns.
The funding comes after a review of
the Community Wastewater Management
System (CWMS) last year deemed the
program a success for local councils.
The current funding agreement is set to
expire on June 30.
Local government currently operates
172 CWM systems in 45 councils across
the state, including all three Riverland
The State Government funding will
support the installation of new commu-
nal wastewater management systems in
towns where urban sewer systems are not
provided by SA water.
Regional Development Minister
Geoff Brock said the CWMS program
supported councils to provide an essential
service to their communities.
“These schemes not only ensure that
public and environmental health stand-
ards in our regional (areas) are met, but
often provide the necessary infrastructure
for those communities to pursue econom-
ic development opportunities,” he said.
“The combined $58.5 million State
Government and community investment
in the CWMS over the past 10 years has
resulted in more than 3000 connections to
11 new wastewater treatment facilities in
Local Government Association presi-
dent Lorraine Rosenberg said the CWMS
program was an example of a successful
state and local government partnership.
“These projects generate much-
needed regional employment through the
construction phase, provide support for
businesses like pubs and caravan parks,
and in some cases can open up new
economic opportunities for remote and
rural towns,” she said.
“The LGA looks forward to working
with the government, local councils and
communities over the coming decade to
facilitate the development of essential
CWMS infrastructure across our state.”
