Did you know that now is the perfect time to buy a car?

The end of the financial year is right around the corner and it couldn’t be a better time to buy a new car. If you’re after a good bargain, there’s quite a bit to consider when purchasing a car.

With different financing methods and competing sales rates, there are a lot of possibilities to ensure that you get the best deal. And the good news is that both small-time car dealers and big brands are keen to sell cars at hefty discounts before the end of the financial year.

Similarly, Sergeant Darren Wallington and Senior Constable Scott O'Brien were honoured for their work in dealing with a siege that unfolded in Wee Waa.

The officers arrived to find a man had barricaded himself in. They started negotiations but the man had doused himself in fuel. Their work saw the situation successfully resolved and the suspect taken into custody, unharmed.

Officers from Wee Waa, Narrabri, Gunnedah, Tamworth and across the wider Oxley district were recognised for their brave actions as well as the years they've dedicated to the force - some of whom notched up 10, 20 and 30 years in the job.
