LEMONS

Love the Orange Civic Theatre but wish there was an aisle down the middle so you don't have to climb over so many people.

ORANGES

Tried the lunch special burger at The HO. It was really good, especially the patty. Go the HO!

 

LEMONS

Not looking forward to the winter bills this year. 

ORANGES

Excellent performance by all the singers and musicians at the Con for the Movie Themes concert. 

LEMONS

Can people please try and indicate BEFORE they turn. So many people here either don't indicate at all, or they do it as they're turning. That's why it's called "indicate" - you are indicating to someone what you're PLANNING to do, not telling them AS you're doing it.

LEMONS

Long time Coalition voter but I've had enough of Scott Morrison. Time for Albanese to have a crack, he couldn't do any worse.

ORANGES

Great to hear Kerry O'Brien speaking at the Canobolas Hotel. We should heed his warnings.

LEMONS

All well and good to want an indoor play centre, but will there be enough people using it to make it pay? These things are usually big and need staff, maintenance, etc. Plus rent, insurance, advertising. How many people a day would need to go there and pay to make it viable? 

ORANGES

The autumn colours are magnificent. And so were the begonias in Cook Park.

LEMONS

The trolleys dumped around town are a really bad look.  

 

ORANGES

Awesome job by the cyclists who rode from Orange to Newcastle for charity. Congratulations for all that hard work!

LEMONS

Sad to see an older man with one crutch digging deep into a garbage bin on Summer Street looking for empty bottles.

ORANGES

Loving the smooth new McLachlan Street. Good job.

LEMONS

To the people calling for violence against suspected young criminals, is that the best idea you have got?! That is really sad.

ORANGES

Good luck to the new council. So good to see new faces. Lots to do! 

ORANGES

To all of the people who came out to the Central West Caravan Camping and Outdoor Expo at Borenore last weekend, thanks for coming by the Orange Credit Union marquee to have some fun playing "ring toss" with our team. 

LEMONS

Why do so many people drive at either 35km/h or 65 km/h on our 50km/h streets? Asking for a friend.

LEMONS

Heaps of people in shops who aren't wearing masks. Selfish. Or maybe there are thousands of people with exemptions :)

ORANGES

Enjoyed a coffee at new place Yoyo, good luck!

LEMONS

To the couple trying to procreate at a cinema recently during Spiderman, you missed a really good film. And you were REALLY loud.

LEMONS

I saw a woman on a mobility scooter with a baby in front of her, and she went across four lanes at the North Orange McDonald's. The light on the Northern Distributor was still green! Wow. 

 

ORANGES

The Sugar Mill's display of treats OMG.

LEMONS

A big lemon to the person on the roundabout on the corner of Byng and Anson streets who just drove across two lanes and almost wiped me out. One lane each!

ORANGES

Thank you to the staff at Woolies in North Orange who have been so great during Covid!

LEMONS

Why are people so mean on social media? I've seen things written that are so nasty!! People don't realise that many others are reading what they say, and it reflects very badly on them.

ORANGES

All the people who put up Chrissy lights and displays. So much time and effort. Great job!!

 

ORANGES

Been some good live music lately - thanks to all the musos and people behind the scenes. More live music!!

LEMONS

To the people who take shopping trolleys and dump them when they get home, it's hard to be a Tidy Town with this sort of thing happening everywhere.

ORANGES

To all the bus drivers who filled in on the Bathurst morning bus in the usual driver's absence.

 

ORANGES

To the friendly faces as United Petrol on Peisley Street.

 

LEMONS

To the P-platers who speed between Orange and Bathurst (and all the others) please stop it! No need to rush.

LEMONS

Too much gossip in Orange! Mind your own business!

ORANGES

Big thanks to Greg and the team at Mad Hatter for those EARLY morning coffees.

ORANGES

Congrats to all the people who stood for council. Instead of whining from the sidelines at least you put your hand up to have a go. 

LEMONS

To all the people who enjoy giving innocent people like me death stares as I walk by, shame on you.

  

LEMONS

Can the fool who revs their motorbike around North Orange please stop it. Spent an hour getting the baby down then you came past. Grow up.

LEMONS

Pot holes, what is happening?!?!

ORANGES

Oils in Orange! Haven't seen them in 20 years.

ORANGES

More murals in Orange please. Some Indigenous art too please.

LEMONS

To the people stealing stuff from front yards like bikes. We work hard for this stuff!! 

ORANGES

For Luke the MRI technician at PRP who was patient and empathetic with my claustrophobic episode whilst getting an MRI recently. I couldn’t complete the morning booking so he graciously rebooked me for an afternoon appointment to give me time to gather myself. Came back more prepared with a helpful calming meditation and I completed the scan in one sitting.  Thanks Luke. 

LEMONS

The scene around the bus stop near the Royal on Summer Street is a bit festy.

ORANGES

To the staff at Mulberry Lane vet for always being kind and loving towards our pets.
