GUEST SPEAKER: Reverend Ted Brush speaks about the drought.

"It gave me the opportunity to thank those who have been supporting us over the years," he said.

"There are towns out there with 500 people and we'd like to encourage people from Singleton to continue to support them.

"Droughts obviously have come and gone over time but this particular drought if I recall correctly is probably one of the three most significant droughts since the advent of European settlement," he continued.

"It will take many years for the pastures to come back so it affects the farmers economically as well as emotionally and spiritually."
