Delia Senior News
Well, it’s official, the Delia General Store has closed its doors, now the people of Delia are without a store. A group of Delia citizens are holding a meeting in the near future to see if some possible solution can be thought of in this situation. It will be interesting to see what develops.
A barbecue was held at the Delia Christian Fellowship Church on Sunday to welcome Pastor Noel Dwarika. his wife Melanie, and their children to our community. Vicki had arranged to have a huge bouncy castle and obstacle course in the churchyard, which was a big hit with the children in the area. It was good to see several members of the community come out to meet Pastor Noel and family.
