Gyranda news

NIKKI and Peter Ma­hony at Gyranda Sta­tion are of­fer­ing cour­ses for prac­ti­cal cat­tle han­dling.

A low-stress ap­proach, the LSS school is a re­mark­able two-day pro­gram that can leave you want­ing to do stock work, see­ing the eco­nomic ben­e­fits in the ki­los gained and the ease in which stock han­dling can be achieved.

Schools cater for some­one who has lit­tle or no ex­pe­ri­ence in han­dling stock, as well as highly com­pe­tent stock peo­ple.

The school is on Mon­day, May 22, and Tues­day, May 23. Con­tact Gyranda for de­tails and costs.

Cham­ber meet­ing

Last Wed­nes­day, Theodore Cham­ber of Com­merce held its monthly meet­ing with a huge turnout.

One of the hot topics again was the in­com­plete rail­way build­ing project.

Mem­bers pro­posed the cham­ber for­mally take over the project due to very slow progress in the past eight months.

Mem­bers felt they had been let down by key per­sons in­volved in the de­vel­op­ment role, while some in­di­vid­u­als had done a fan­tas­tic job.

In a short time prior to the meet­ing, mem­bers were able to put to­gether an ac­tions plan as well as ob­tain sev­eral quotes, in­clud­ing for paint­ing and spe­cial­ist sand­blast­ing, as well as key ad­vice on get­ting the project mov­ing.

The coun­cil has been help­ful in pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion to get the project mov­ing.

A spe­cial on-site meet­ing was called for Tues­day to de­cide on the scope of de­vel­op­ment for the build­ing and where nec­es­sary ob­tain suit­able coun­cil ap­provals.

The aim now is to get it fin­ished.

Prop­erty boom

Fol­low­ing suit with other re­gional prop­erty sales, Theodore has had a num­ber of re­cent de­vel­op­ments.

New res­i­dents Mr and Mrs Trus­sell – lo­cally nick­named Mr and Mrs Monster Truck due to the size of their ve­hi­cle – ar­rived in Theodore a while ago and liked it so much they de­cided to stay, buy­ing a house on Eleventh Ave.
