Southern Riverina news - - FRONT PAGE -

Fin­ley has the big­gest re­tail and ser­vice cen­tre in the Ber­ri­gan Shire, and Fin­ley Cham­ber of Com­merce In­dus­try & Agri­cul­ture Inc. is very proud of the ex­cel­lent ser­vice that Fin­ley busi­nesses of­fer.

Busi­nesses are lo­cally owned and staffed, and of­fer good old fash­ioned coun­try ser­vice with a smile, only too happy to pro­mote their busi­nesses and the town as a whole.

Up to 100 busi­nesses sup­port Cham­ber in its en­deav­ours to pro­mote Fin­ley, mak­ing it one of the big­gest cham­bers in the South­ern Rive­rina.

Fin­ley is a tourist des­ti­na­tion, on the cross­roads of two ma­jor high­ways — the Newell and Rive­rina High­ways — with its large re­tail sec­tor and at­trac­tions like Fin­ley Lake, Log Cabin Mu­seum and Rail­way Sta­tion, and all the parks and gar­dens mak­ing it a great place for sur­round­ing towns­peo­ple and trav­ellers to stop and en­joy.

Shop­ping op­por­tu­ni­ties in­clude cloth­ing, shoes, gifts, sta­tionery, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, elec­tri­cal and fur­ni­ture, hard­ware, vet­eri­nary and farm­ing sup­plies, as well as a well stocked su­per­mar­ket and butcheries.

Cof­fee shops, the bak­ery, cafes, ho­tel and clubs of­fer great food and drinks.

There’s also a range of pro­fes­sional ser­vices in the town, banks, ac­coun­tants, solic­i­tors, elec­tri­cians, plumbers and more.

Fin­ley is home to many larger busi­nesses that sup­ply goods and ser­vices to a far wider area in­clud­ing whole­sale food, grain stor­age and ship­ping, ma­chin­ery and trans­port com­pa­nies.

Fin­ley is also lucky enough to have two doc­tor surg­eries and two den­tal clin­ics, as well as lots of other health, fit­ness and med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties for young and old.

Fin­ley Cham­ber is the or­gan­i­sa­tion in Fin­ley which pro­motes and cov­ers all Fin­ley Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­try and Agri­cul­ture Inc.

Fin­ley Cham­ber is the or­gan­i­sa­tion in Fin­ley which pro­motes and cov­ers all as­pects of busi­ness and the com­mu­nity of Fin­ley.

Com­mu­nity is­sues such as town beau­ti­fi­ca­tion, parks and gar­dens, roads and traf­fic, health and school­ing go hand in hand with a suc­cess­ful busi­ness sec­tor.

The lat­est cham­ber cam­paign has been to work with the Roads & Mar­itime Ser­vices and the Ber­ri­gan Shire Coun­cil on im­prov­ing the safety of the Mur­ray Street pedes­trian cross­ing.

Other projects cham­ber wishes to pur­sue in­clude es­tab­lish­ing a mu­sic and PA sys­tem for the main CBD, and ob­tain­ing more ban­ners for the newly con­structed flag tracks on the Newell High­way.

Cham­ber’s ‘Fin­ley for the Fu­ture’ fo­rum is con­tin­u­ing with im­prov­ing all as­pects of Fin­ley.

The new Arts, Cul­ture & Her­itage sub­com­mit­tee are hop­ing to work to­wards open­ing up the Her­itage Rail­way sta­tion again and for Silo Art­work to be done.

Talks have recom­menced about a Rail Trail con­nect­ing Tocumwal through Fin­ley to Ber­ri­gan. Ideas and in­put from the com­mu­nity are al­ways wel­come.

Fin­ley is a very at­trac­tive town for young fam­i­lies, as well as older, and Cham­ber would like to see more at­trac­tions for the younger fam­i­lies.
