Notice Board

posted in: Shopping Centre | 0

Steve and Arthur from the IGA Shop have put up a Notice Board next to the ANZ ATM. This is a great addition for the community as the previous notice board was recently destroyed by vandals. It was also exposed to the rain and wind which ruined many notices. Members of the public can place personal ads along the bottom using the supplied cards. Official community notices will be placed in the larger plastic sleeves at the top.

Shopping centre update

posted in: Shopping Centre | 0

In the last week or so contractors have undertaken repairs to the retaining walls around the shopping centre square. The walls had collapsed in various parts due to the pressure from the roots of the various maturing trees and this gave the shopping centre a run down look. We thank the Government for its timely response and the return of our shopping precinct to its former glory. There has also been a hive of activity at Ten-Deli with bobcats, plumbers … Read More

Vale Mrs Jess Taylor

She knew every child in the school and would be fondly remembered by many thousands of children. But it wasn’t just the … Read More
