Have you ever been in hospital? Most adults have at some point.
And there's not much that makes you more grateful than the people who feed you, bathe you, supply your medical needs, and do it all with a cheery smile.
I know I have laid on a hospital bed feeling as helpless as a baby and pretty much wanted to kiss the nurses who took care of me.
Now they have to do it all knowing that at any point they could be exposed to COVID-19.
Which brings me to one of our big stories this week. Goulburn nurses have joined the statewide battle to see them receive their 2.5 per cent pay rise, in line with inflation. Read about it below.
Making news this week was the death of a wool industry giant - Jim Maple-Brown. We spoke to his son Richard about his memories of the great man.
Also remembered was long-time volunteer Bronwyn Cooper, for whom a bench was dedicated at the Early Childhood Centre. You wouldn't believe the outpouring of love we've seen for her on our Facebook page over the last few days.
There's also the latest on the Tarago lead contamination to catch up on and, finally, our latest campaign to help Goulburn's business community.
If that's you, click on the story below to update your details in our online business directory.
And set your alarm for 6pm this evening to take part in our first ever Business Hour. You just need to jump on the Goulburn Post Facebook page at the right time, and you can comment on our Business Hour post to let everyone know who you are and what you're doing.
Enjoy your day.
