Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Anne Jones

Tocumwal Foot­ball and Net­ball Club are host­ing a Mock Wed­ding on July 29.

This event is an over 18 night, and those who have in­di­cated they are go­ing should con­tact Sarah Quick and pay for their tick­ets.

Re­mem­ber to bring along your friends for a fun night. There are no tick­ets for sale at the door. Firm num­bers are needed for ca­ter­ing — it’s a wed­ding af­ter all! Start time is 6.30pm with canapes for the 7pm cer­e­mony.

Tocumwal Ju­nior foot­baller Blair Eddy notched up a great mile­stone on Satur­day in the game against Pi­cola.

Blair has played 50 club games and he is still in the un­der 14s.

This gutsy lit­tle player has no fear as he mixes it with the big­ger play­ers.

If Blair can con­tinue to play with­out in­jury, there is every pos­si­bil­ity he will break many of the club’s longevity records in his time.

Ben Herezo also played 50 re­serve games, and Jes­sica Ben­nett, who started out with the club in ju­nior net­ball, has marked her 100th game as a se­nior.

Well done to all.

School holidays are over again for the east­ern states and the kids are back at school.

Many lo­cal grand­par­ents are re­turn­ing from child mind­ing du­ties with great sto­ries about ad­ven­tures with grand­chil­dren.

Hope you all had a great time catch­ing up.

There are grants and as­sis­tance avail­able for those who put their hands up to help.

So many peo­ple chose Tocumwal to live be­cause of its tree cov­er­age and its nat­u­ral as­pects, but these are fast get­ting lost un­der con­crete and clay.
