Free asbestos tests
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.
