Beryl wins club cham­pi­onship

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - NEWS -

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Beryl Mur­ray who is Mathoura Bowl­ing Club’s Ladies Sin­gles Cham­pion for 2016.

She de­feated Pam Lim­brick 25 to 23 to claim the cham­pi­onship in a game which saw Pam lead un­til the 26th end.

It is Beryl’s third ti­tle, se­cured with a four on the fi­nal end.

There were un­usual sounds around Mathoura on Satur­day night, es­pe­cially when they came from a ve­hi­cle renowned for its in­volve­ment in emer­gen­cies.

Mathoura Fire Brigade played its tra­di­tional role as chauf­feur to Santa pro­vid­ing Christ­mas cheer — and a bag of lol­lies to lo­cal and vis­it­ing young­sters.

They trav­elled back and forth from street to street, and then off to Pic­nic Point, pro­vid­ing lots of joy.

Full marks to the brigade for con­tin­u­ing this fun event.

A wel­come is ex­tended to the new faces at the Pas­toral Ho­tel.

Gra­ham and Lyn McCarthy are cur­rently in a ‘care­taker’ po­si­tion and hope to take over com­pletely in about five weeks.

Lyn is a chef, hav­ing worked in ho­tel, club and bistro en­vi­ron­ments as well as head chef at a 50s and over Life­style Re­sort.

Gra­ham’s ex­pe­ri­ence in­cludes work with fed­eral de­part­ments and se­nior man­age­ment po­si­tions in the air­port and air­line in­dus­try, as well as ser­vice with Vic­to­ria Po­lice.

They will be as­sisted by Gra­ham’s brother ‘Macka’ and his wife, Kerry.

It is hoped the McCarthys set­tle well into our com­mu­nity.

It seems ‘our’ Faith’s con­di­tion is con- tin­u­ing to im­prove with small steps adding up.

There are re­ports of stand­ing alone, and be­ing treated to ice­cream.

I be­lieve she also took the time to make a Face Time call to make Christ­mas brighter for friends fac­ing it for the first time with­out a loved one.

It is to be hoped that a call will not be the only thing com­ing home in the not too dis­tant fu­ture.

God bless you Faith!
