Free as­bestos tests

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

Mur­rumbidgee Coun­cil (which now in­cludes the for­mer Jer­ilderie Shire) has been ad­vised by the of­fice of Fair Trad­ing that Jer­ilderie has now been in­cluded in the Loose-fill As­bestos Im­ple­men­ta­tion Task Force pro­gram.

Free sam­pling will be pro­vided for up to 100 prop­er­ties in this area, and own­ers of pre 1980s homes which may have had the in­su­la­tion in­stalled, have un­til Au­gust 1 to reg­is­ter for testing.

If you think you might have loose-fill as­bestos in­su­la­tion in your house the con­tact link to the free test is http:/ /www.fair­trad­ing.nsw.gov.au//ftw/Ten­ants and home own­ers/Loose fill as­bestos in­su­la­tion/F.

If this all sounds too con­fus­ing get in touch with the girls at the li­brary, or the coun­cil of­fice staff.

Jer­ilderie Tidy Towns and Jer­ilderie Foot­ball and Net­ball Club’s big road­side cleanup, ini­tially sched­uled this Sun­day June 26, has been can­celled due to the wet con­di­tions.

It will be resched­uled and all will be in­vited to at­tend once again.

Jer­ilderie Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary will meet to­mor­row at the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre at 2pm.

As the May meet­ing was can­celled due to other com­mit­ments, it would be pleas­ing to see a good turnout for this meet­ing. Pres­i­dent Nancy will be back in the chair.

New mem­bers are al­ways wel­come.

The Jer­ilderie preschool trivia night is this Satur­day at the Civic Hall.

Doors open from 8pm with trivia to start at 8.30pm. Con­tact Heidi Bryce for more, on 0409 989 786.

Rosters for the Jer­ilderie Vin­nies shop from July to Oc­to­ber are now in the shop, or at St Joseph’s Catholic Church. Please pick up your copy.

Just a re­minder that the Vin­nies shop will re­main closed on the sec­ond, fourth and any fifth Wed­nes­days of the month due to lack of avail­able vol­un­teers.

There may be other days dur­ing win­ter when the shop is closed, as some of the vol­un­teers are mi­grat­ing to warmer climes.

Fol­low­ing to­day's Lifeball and Tai Chi at the Sport­ing Com­plex, Jer­ilderie Lifeballers are tak­ing a break as many travel away from the win­try weather.

Mem­bers will con­tinue to meet for brunch on the last Wed­nes­day of the month, and the June get-to­gether will be at the bak­ery on June 29.

All mem­bers, friends or prospec­tive mem­bers will be wel­come to go along be­tween 11am and 11.15am on the day.

A July date for the re­turn of Lifeball will be ad­vised.

St Joseph’s is host­ing the Deanery Ath­let­ics Car­ni­val this Fri­day at Monash Park.

Let’s hope the weather is kinder this time around.

Twenty-two stu­dents from St Joseph’s have qual­i­fied to com­pete in the car­ni­val.

K/1 stu­dents from St Joseph’s, and their min­ders, vis­ited the Altina Wildlife Park at Dar­ling­ton Point on June 16, and en­joyed a lovely morn­ing with the an­i­mals.

Year 3-6 Public School stu­dents from across the Fin­ley Zone en­joyed the Win­ter Round Robin held re­cently at Mul­wala.

Jer­ilderie Public School com­peted in soc­cer, net­ball and mat ball.

The SRN ran a photo and story last week about Grace Leeds and Elouise Bar­low be­ing se­lected in the NSW State AFL team to play in Ma­roochy­dore in July.

The girls got there through a fairly rig­or­ous se­lec­tion process, start­ing with footy try-outs at St Fran­cis Col­lege Lee­ton where they are both pupils.

They were then se­lected in the Un­der 15 NSW Com­bined Catholic Col­leges (CCC) team, and par­tic­i­pated in a foot­ball car­ni­val play­ing against two other Rive­rina teams and a com­bined Syd­ney/New­cas­tle/Wol­lon­gong team. Held in Al­bury in early June, the CCC team won con­vinc­ingly.

At the end of the car­ni­val Elouise and Grace were among 24 girls se­lected to rep­re­sent the NSW Un­der 15 State squad.
