Wel­come praise

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT - SUE TELFORD Biggen­den Cham­ber of Tourism and In­dus­try

THE cham­ber would like to thank all of the res­i­dents who took the time to fill in their in­for­ma­tion for the new Biggen­den phone book.

It was hoped that ev­ery­one would fill out the forms so that we could skip the te­dious job of search­ing through the White Pages, but alas, we have re­ceived only about half of the forms that were posted out.

There has been a real in­flux of trav­ellers to the town in re­cent weeks and it is re­ally won­der­ful to hear the com­ments from them on what a friendly town we have here. Well done Biggen­den. Ruff ‘n’ Tuff Car Club will hold its Char­ity Car Show at the Biggen­den Show­grounds on Au­gust 30. The gates will open at 6am. The free bus to Mary­bor­ough Blood Bank will leave Biggen­den State School bus shel­ter at 4.30pm on Tues­day, Au­gust 5.

If you are over 16 and un­der 80, are fit and healthy and would like to help your com­mu­nity by giv­ing blood, give Sue Telford at the newsagency (4127 1480) a call to book a seat on the bus.

Be a lit­tle Aussie Bleeder and care for your com­mu­nity.

It was with sad­ness that we saw Cafe Phoenix close at the end of June.

The cham­ber wishes Lisa and Dean Fother­ing­ham all the best for the fu­ture.

It is with glad­ness that we watch prepa­ra­tions be­ing made for a re­open­ing next week.

The cham­ber wishes Greg and Gayle Aberdein all the best for the fu­ture.

The bak­ery has also moved along Ed­ward St to its new premises – right be­side the newsagency. And oh, the aro­mas!

The cham­ber will hold its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing at 6pm on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 13, at the Commercial Ho­tel, with the gen­eral meet­ing to fol­low the AGM.

We are al­ways look­ing for new mem­bers, so if you would like to be­come a mem­ber, come and have a chat.

Un­til next time, keep smil­ing!
