●●● The Fin­ley Fil­lies (Red Hat Ladies) was formed over two years ago with the in­ten­tion of get­ting to­gether, or­gan­is­ing fun out­ings and en­joy­ing each other’s com­pany. The group is now look­ing for new mem­bers and an in­vi­ta­tion is ex­tended to ladies over the age of 50 years who would like to join in the fun to con­tact Tri­cia on 5883 1454.

There are no rules ex­cept that a red hat and pur­ple top must be worn at all gath­er­ings. There are no fees or ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cers - the sole aim is to meet for lunch and have fun.

So if this sounds like your kind of group, please feel free to call Tri­cia, join in and make new friends.

●●● Fin­ley High School Year 12 stu­dents are work­ing very hard to­wards their fi­nal year’s ex­ams.

How­ever, they took time out re­cently to hold a cake stall and raf­fle to raise funds for their grad­u­a­tion and the tra­di­tional gift to the school which will be pre­sented at their fi­nal assem­bly.

Win­ner of the first prize of $50 petrol from BP Fin­ley was Patsy Doyle and sec­ond prize ($25 meat voucher from Ash­ley Haynes Butch-

ery) went to Sasha Con­gram.

Year 12 would like to thank BP Fin­ley and Ash­ley Haynes Butch­ery for their gen­er­ous do­na­tions and con­tin­ued sup­port of pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion.

●●● Ge­off Boscombe was the lucky win­ner of Satur­day’s Fin­ley Li­ons Club wood raf­fle.

●●● The fol­low­ing news comes di­rectly in the words of Year 6 stu­dents at Fin­ley Pub­lic School:

‘‘Fin­ley Pub­lic School has taken on a big pro­ject and we have joined the Fin­ley Farmer’s Mar­ket to ac­com­plish our big goal.

What we are aim­ing to do is create a gar­den with nu­mer­ous beds and chooks.

This is part of our school­ing and learn­ing to re­cy­cle which will give some life lessons.

We have been able to have a lot of help from Mrs. Archibald who has told us about a com­pe­ti­tion at the farmer’s mar­ket.

To win we need to get the most amount of peo­ple from our school to vote for us but our sup­port­ers have to go to the farmer’s mar­ket and vote for Fin­ley Pub­lic School.

If we win we get half of the money they re­ceived that day from the front gate. This money will go to­wards the com­ple­tion of our gar­den and chooks.

All of the fresh pro- duce will go in our can­teen which we will sell to get more money which will keep the gar­den up and run­ning.

We have done so much work al­ready and we are on our way to fin­ish­ing, but we need your help to jump the last hur­dle. So please sup­port us at Fin­ley Pub­lic School.’’

So please show your sup­port of th­ese very in­dus­tri­ous young mem­bers of our com­mu­nity by at­tend­ing the Fin­ley Farmer’s Mar­ket this Satur­day, July 7 and vot­ing for Fin­ley Pub­lic School.

●●● The ini­tia­tive of the Fin­ley Farmer’s Mar­ket to con­trib­ute half the pro­ceeds of gate do­na­tions each month has had a great re­sponse from many lo­cal com­mu­nity-based or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The fol­low­ing com- mu­nity groups are hop­ing to gain ex­tra funds; there­fore, if you have an in­ter­est in any of th­ese groups, please sup­port them at this Satur­day’s Mar­ket. The group with the most sup­port on the day will ben­e­fit.

Ber­riquin Toy Li­brary/Fin­ley Play­group are hop­ing to up­date their toys and safety equip­ment, Fin­ley High School Show Team would love some ex­tra funds to help them get to the next Mel­bourne Show and Fin­ley Pub­lic School stu­dents are in need of some es­sen­tials for their new veg­etable gar­den/chicken run.
