Amaroo Aged Care Hostel Auxiliary will be holding an Autumn Garden Walk on April 7.
Starting from Tom and Heather Pyle’s residence at 10am, participants will then walk or drive to Alan and Jude Lawrence’s ‘Bantam Park’.
Both gardens are a must see.
From there it’s over to the Tank Paddock, where you will be given a guided tour of what the Berrigan Conservation and Berrigan Tidy Towns Committee are striving to achieve.
A delicious finger food lunch will be served at the paddock.
Watch this space for further information. Please save the date.
If you are an older person looking for some light exercise to keep you fit, come to the Madill Centre every Monday and Wednesday from 10.15am to 10.45am.
Exercises are done sitting on a chair so they are not too strenuous, and what’s more, they are free.

Congratulations to Mia Cameron on representing Finley Little Athletics Club in Wollongong at regional level last weekend.
Mia joined the club in August and did a mighty job competing in discus with a PB and the girls’ 70 metre sprint, 100 metre sprint and 60 metre hurdles.
Also competing at regionals was Charlie Magill. Charlie came third in the 800 metre, fourth in the 200 metre and 400 metre races and fifth in the 60 metre hurdles.
Well done to Mia and Charlie on a fantastic achievement.
