Lo­cal church to mark cen­te­nary

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - NEWS -

The con­gre­ga­tion of Mathoura’s St An­drew’s Uniting Church is pre­par­ing for a very spe­cial oc­ca­sion.

Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 28 will mark a cen­te­nary of ser­vice at the lo­cal church.

Cel­e­bra­tions to mark the oc­ca­sion will be­gin at 2pm on that day and will be fol­lowed by af­ter­noon tea.

With a good deal of church his­tory lost in the fire which de­stroyed the church hall a few years ago, or­gan­is­ers are keen to hear from any­one who may have pho­to­graphs or other mem­o­ra­bilia re­lat­ing to the past 100 years as well as any sto­ries or anec­dotes.

If you can help, con­tact Bron­wyn Eddy on 5884 3366 or regi­naldeddy@big­pond.com.

Lo­cals want­ing to join in the cel­e­bra­tions should con­tact the Ed­dys. You will be most wel­come.

Luck was out for the North­ern United Cricket Club last week­end with both teams go­ing down.

B Grade played Rochester Gold and scored 87 (H Hoop­pell 36), but went down to a score of 4/88.

C Grade, at home to Cooma, was also un­able to se­cure the four points.

Mathoura Bowl­ing Club recorded three wins from four in Sat­ur­day pen­nant last week­end.

Divi­sion One en­joyed a 20 shot win over Deni RSL, Divi­sion Two de­feated Rochester by 17 and Divi­sion Four had a 25 shot win over Echuca. Af­ter its great win last week, Divi­sion Five low­ered its colours to Moama.
