Lockdown relief

-

It was with a sigh of relief Edward River residents flocked to Deniliquin CBD on Saturday to enjoy the sun and support local.

Many businesses were forced to close their doors when NSW was plunged into lockdown on August 14, because they were classed as non-essential.

That changed at 12.01am on Saturday when lockdown restrictio­ns lifted in the Riverina.

Shoppers were excited to get some retail therapy, while others were happy to enjoy a seated breakfast or lunch at one of the cafes.

Shop owners welcomed the activity back into their lives as they rushed around helping customers from morning until close.
