Nelligen Doctor freshens the Barefoot Bowls

Saturday, 16 March, 2019

On Friday night just as the sea-breeze, or the Nelligen doctor, arrived the Community Bank Bare-foot Bowls competition was under way after a very hot day, in what turned out to be a very pleasant evening and a lot fun. There was some difficulties caused at the start when some those who played last week did not turn up but when a team was missing fortunately a new team arrived, and Phil Lewis and Peter Camiller soon sorted out a few new recruits to fill the gaps in some teams.

Out on the green each team was given a rink to play on and a team to play on a rotating weekly roster.

The beauty of the night is the wide range of the age of the players being from children aged about nine to one lady in her late seventies and it was great to see so many families playing together and it was pleasing to see all the kids running around the vacant green having a lot of fun.

Laurie Riley is doing a great job coaching the C.W.A. ladies & he had time to pass his wisdom onto some of the players on an adjoining rink as well as coaching their opposing team, a great effort Laurie.

The team to win the Community Bank $200-00 this week was the Landmark team, and when play finished as it got dark all the players adjourned to the Barbecue area where Barry Broadbent, Gordon Shorrock, Gorrie Kite & President Phil had the sausages, onions and bread ready for all to participate in.

With still two weeks to go of the bare-foot bowls carnival to go come and try your luck in an evening fun.

Remember Bowlers are not old they just live longer.

Serious observations from the older hands at the Bowls Club.

Team Landmark show some form.

STUART Little, centre, is facing a long recovery of treatment after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. He is pictured with the band “The Budgie Smugglers”, David Sleath and Mike Brady, who will play at a special fund-raiser this Friday night.

Stuart, an apprentice at Lawrence’s Garage, is currently travelling to Tamworth daily for treatment and doesn’t qualify for the isolated patient allowance as the distance is under 100km.

The Gunnedah Miners Support Group has set up a trust account in Stuart’s name to raise funds to help him with medical costs.

The Barbers Way have backed the cause and are running “100 clubs” to raise further funds and a fund-raising committee has been set up to organise events for Stuart.

The committee are holding a “Rock n Roll” night this Friday, which will include an auction and entertainment from the Budgie Smugglers.

The event will be held at the Gunnedah Services and Bowling Club auditorium from 6pm and will cost $25 per person. Tickets are available from the club office or Gunnedah First National.

Tickets include a two course meal and entertainment.

2MO has donated a $1000 advertising package to the cause to be sold in the auction, which will also include items such as a two seater lounge, accommodation package, men’s Bolle sunglasses and vouchers.

If anyone has items to be donated to the auction they can be dropped at Gunnedah First National or Gunnedah Services and Bowling Club.

Stuart is very greatful for the generous support of the Gunnedah community and hopes to see everyone for a fun night.

“Get in and get your tickets, you do not want to miss out on a pre Christmas celebration with Stuart and the Budgees,” committee member Fiona Moore said.

The club’s foyer has undergone a massive transformation, giving the club a fresh new look going forward. The new look features a water feature and a new memorial and eternal flame as well as a brand new reception.

The new foyer was officially unveiled on Friday by Services Club president Russell Meehan, and general manager Pat Lonergan said club staff are very happy with the finished result of the new foyer which took approximately 10 weeks to complete.

“It’s come up really well, we’re very happy with it,” Mr Lonergan said.

“It is the first thing people see so it’s nice to have it looking all fresh and new, we are now hoping to look at doing some work inside now.”

Mr Longeran said the memorial – which was officially opened by RSL sub-branch president Gordon Taylor – is a mix of old and new.

“All the marble is new, the rest of it came from the original memorial garden so it was just cleaned up and modernised,” he said.

Vet Surgery celebrates 25 years

Saturday, 16 March, 2019

Greg and Nicola moved to Braidwood in August 1989 and established the Braidwood Veterinary Surgery in Wallace Street, in part of the building that is now Eureka Pizzeria. Greg’s great friend, Tom Burns (who many will recall), an Irish equine veterinarian assisted him during the first few horse stud seasons. It soon became a very busy large animal practice servicing the district, including two large thoroughbred studs, Charleston Stud (standing Zephyr Zip) and Strathallen Stud, belonging to the Lavis family (standing the legendary Whiskey Road).

Owners Nicola and Greg Gilbert (sitting with Hugo) with Staff Camille, Danielle, Donna and Katie.

Over the next few years the business outgrew its premises and relocated next door into the building next to the church, 85 Wallace Street. This was a great location for many years and saw the business develop into a well-equipped three veterinarian practice.

In January 2011 the business relocated to the brand new purpose built A class hospital in the old shell depot on Araluen Road. This location has been the perfect site, particularly for its large parking area, room for stock trucks, and space for hospitalised large animals in outside yards, and large dog runs.

The building has been built to both Building Code Standards, with disabled facilities, public toilets, as well as Veterinary Board Standards, with on-site undercover equine reproduction facilities, two undercover stables and day yard for all large animals. Key services within the building include digital x-ray, ultrasound, in house pathology laboratory and state of the art operating theatre. The business continues to provide a 24 hour emergency service and employs three Veterinarians, a Practice Manager, an Accredited Veterinary Nurse and a Trainee Veterinary Nurse.

Braidwood Veterinary Surgery has come a long way in 25 years and would like to invite all their clients to their birthday celebration on 4th December from 6pm – 10pm.

Local Giving Box appeal launched

Saturday, 16 March, 2019

GIVING BOX: Pictured at the Port Augusta Target store are mayor Sam Johnson, store manager Jackie Barker, local UnitingCare coordinator Helen Mullion and service assistant Sarah Donnellan. Port Augusta’s Target store and UnitingCare are partnering once again in an effort to spread Christmas cheer through the Giving Box appeal.
Nanjing Night Net

The appeal encourages the community to buy gifts and make donations to help children who otherwise may have nothing to unwrap on Christmas morning.

A large ‘Giving Box’ will be displayed at the front of every Target store, and shoppers are encouraged to place unwrapped gifts inside or take a bauble gift tag to make a donation at the register.

The Target and UnitingCare Giving Box appeal (formerly Operation Santa) launched on November 6 and will run through until Christmas Eve.

The appeal is in its 23rd year and thanks to the support of generous Australians, has distributed over 1.7 million gifts.

Local UnitingCare coordinator Helen Million said there are many families in our community who are going to find it really tough to provide gifts for their children this year.

“We rely on fellow locals to dig deep, so please support our appeal at Target Port Augusta,” she said.

“We make sure that all donated gifts go to local families.”

UnitingCare staff and volunteers collect the gifts and ensure they are distributed to those most in need in time for Christmas morning.

Target managing director Stuart Machin encouraged all Target customers to help brighten someone’s Christmas by donating a gift or a card.

“We’re proud to continue our long tradition of partnering with UnitingCare to help the less fortunate at Christmas,” he said.

“Through their network of over 1,600 service sites across the country, UnitingCare will ensure we deliver gifts to families across Australia who need them most.

“With Christmas just around the corner, an overwhelming number of families in Australia will be feeling anxiety over the lack of resources to buy Christmas gifts for their children.

It’s expected this Christmas that nearly 600,000 Australian children will be living in poverty; an additional 40,000 will be living in out-of-home care and away from their families for a range of reasons.

Over 26,000 families benefited from the appeal last year, and this year organisers are hoping to assist and support even more struggling families.

Model T helps give Angel Flight wings

Saturday, 16 February, 2019

Angels come in all shapes and sizes, and Gunnedah had a visit from an unlikely angel in a T Model Ford on Friday.
Nanjing Night Net

Heading home: Lindsay Bell with his T Model Ford “Lizzy” stops over in Gunnedah.

Lindsay Bell, a Lion from Morayfield in Queensland and an Angel Flight Australia supporter, and his wife Valmay arrived in Gunnedah as one of the last stages in a great adventure that has taken them around Australia.

The Bells, along with three other vintage cars, took their 1923 T Model Ford “Lizzy” up across the top of Australia before coming back across the Nullabor.

Mr Bell said the 280km-a-day journey had brought with it some unexpected adventures.

“The spokes in the wheels are wood and they shrunk and came loose,” he said.

“We put all new tyres on when we left, but these aren’t modern tyres. We got to Perth and needed new tyres.”

Mr Bell, a former pilot, can no longer fly because of hearing loss, but has found ways to support Angel Flight from the ground, including this fund-raising adventure.

He has also assisted with about 160 Angel Flight missions, helping country people make it to medical facilities.

The Bells have done it tough in the heat, camping overnight and travelling without air-conditioning across the country.

They were looking forward to a return to Morayfield early this week.

“I am going to make myself a good cup of tea, sit down and enjoy watching the grass grow,” Mr Bell said.

“Lizzy” met with trouble when they got to Bathurst and is returning home on the back of a trailer, but Mr Bell said it wouldn’t be long before she was back on the road.

“She’s a great girl, we’ve had a lot of fun in her,” he said. “She is a most honest vehicle.”

The couple also have a 1912 T Model Ford at home that goes by the name of “Margaret”.

The Bells said they had met some wonderful people on their travels, including caravanners and Lions members.

The trip aimed at raising awareness of Angel Flight and funds to help the service.

THREE Pauls and a Jamie – it sounds like the start of a joke.

Paul Jones, Paul Turner, Paul Stares and Jamie Stokes guided Mittagong thirds to a comprehensive win over Bundanoon on Saturday.

Bundanoon captain Andrew Hore won the toss and elected to bat first.

Despite the best efforts of Hore and Neil Xavier (20 each), Bundanoon was eventually bundled out for 68 in the 16th over.

Stares led the Mittagong attack with 4/18 off six overs, while Jones took 4/14 from 3.3 overs.

The visitors had little trouble in reply, passing the total in 15.4 overs for the loss of just two wickets.

Turner top scored with 25no and received great support from Stokes (20no).

Mittagong captain Phil Aitkon praised his team for a great performance with the ball.

“We held our catches and then chased down the runs pretty easily.

“I’m a happy captain.”

Conversely, Hore said it was “one of those games you want to forget”.

“We were terrible with the bat.”

The tour coincided with the Lord Tavener’s Indigenous Cricket Carnival held on Sunday and Monday.

The six-team Twenty20 format carnival was headlined by under 23 Australian Indigenous cricketer and South Australian under 17 captain Ayden McGregor-Baptista.

Mr McGregor-Baptista said his first game was on Sunday against Port Augusta and played in Quorn.

“The facilities in Quorn were fantastic,” he said.

“The game was demanding but it was all good fun.”

At ETSA Oval on Monday, there were family friendly activities throughout the day with local schools and visiting schools having the opportunity to see the World Cup trophy.
