Times are tough, and everything can seem like it's all falling apart, hopeless and negative. But it doesn't have to be that way.
So, in an effort to try to brighten your day, we've started a project to put together a 'Good News Diary' full of the most positive stories and comments from the Mudgee Guardian every week.
Expect a new entry every Friday afternoon to cap off your week and practice a bit of self-care.

Just came back from the new Mudgee Sourdough that opened today at 113 Church St. Wow the bread is delicious and I bought one of her sausage rolls beef & olive, it was beautiful and I don't usually enjoy sausage rolls.
I wish her all the best for her new business, and the community gives her lots of support.
