‘Physie’ group to com­pete in Syd­ney

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

An Edith Par­sons Phys­i­cal Cul­ture group started in Jer­ilderie about five months ago, un­der the guid­ance of Re­becca Boag of Coleam­bally.

Physie, as it is com­monly known, is a unique com­pet­i­tive sport com­bin­ing dance, floor and stand­ing ex­er­cises for girls and women.

The Jer­ilderie par­tic­i­pants re­cently took part in their first in­ter­club com­pe­ti­tion, be­tween Jer­ilderie and Coleam­bally, at Yamma Hall in Coleam­bally.

Two teams from Jer­ilderie will now go on to com­pete in Syd­ney on Novem­ber 3.

Teams have to be prop­erly at­tired for such en­deav­ours, and leo­tards are the re­quired uni­form.

Re­becca has asked if any in­di­vid­ual or group might be will­ing to spon­sor the EP Physie group, to help al­le­vi­ate uni­form and trav­el­ling ex­penses.

More in­for­ma­tion on the group can be ac­cessed on www.ep­physie.com.au. Re­becca may be con­tacted on (02) 6954 8572.

St Stephen’s Angli­can Church, Jer­ilderie, was the set­ting last Sun­day for a joy­ful com­bined ser­vice with friends from the Unit­ing Church.

Lor­raine Comber played the or­gan for the hymns, which were led by sev­eral strong voices in the con­gre­ga­tion.

More than 30 peo­ple at­tended, with a few vis­i­tors from Gul­gong, Gren­fell, Melbourne, and even New Zealand.

Af­ter the ser­vice, a morn­ing tea — fit for a king or queen — was shared in the church hall where there was also much catch­ing up.

Next month’s com­bined ser­vice will be on Sun­day, Au­gust 19 at the Unit­ing Church at 10am.

Ev­ery­one is al­ways wel­come to join in.
