David, Sarah and Callum featured in the Central Western Daily on Monday 9th May 2011.
‘Sarah and Dave Ash have a six-month-old boy, Callum.
Mrs Ash said the services in Orange were adequate but knowing where to find them could be a challenge.
“I am not sure everybody knows what’s out there,” she said.
She said nothing could prepare you for becoming a mum.
“Mothers themselves are the best resources you can get,” she said.
The business of some services is another factor which can make them difficult to access, according to Mrs Ash.
The views of families like David, Callum and Sarah Ash are being sought as part of the Orange parenting survey.
Nonna (Connie) Ferragamo appeared in the Orange Photo News in March 2011. Nonna was celebrated for her 23 years service at the Orange Base Hospital Kiosk. With the new Orange Base Hospital now open, Nonna has hung up her apron in the Kiosk for the last time…I hope she has not hung up her apron in her own kitchen! The entire family is very proud of Nonna.

TAXI fare evasion has become less of a problem for local drivers since security cameras were installed in local cabs, according to Taxi Cabs of Orange co-director Peter Cudars.
As taxi drivers on the Central Coast prepare to trial a fares up-front system to prevent people from running off without paying, Mr Cudars says the problem is not as great in Orange.
“It is certainly not such a big issue in Orange with runners,” he said.
“I think it’s because of safety cameras we have in taxis.”
It became mandatory for all regional taxis to be fitted with surveillance cameras in March.
The technology allows offenders to be captured on camera and identified.
They can also be traced through the taxi call centre.
However, Mr Cudars admits fare evasion has not completely disappeared from Orange streets.
“It sometimes pops its head up, maybe once a month,” he said.
The fares up-front trial will begin on the Central Coast next year, requiring drivers to estimate the fare and receive payment before the journey.
