Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

The Jer­ilderie Phys­i­cal Cul­ture Club has had a very suc­cess­ful first year.

Both the ladies and girls’ teams have trav­elled through­out the year to Syd­ney and Mudgee to com­pete against other girls across the state, and brought home a swag of medals.

The group re­cently trav­elled to Syd­ney to com­pete in the Cham­pion Girl and Teams com­pe­ti­tion.

Ruby Neessen, Ge­or­gia Belling, Jes­sica Wilkin­son, Mia Neessen, Kate­lyn Wilkin­son and Chelsea Winn com­bined with girls from the Coleam­bally Physie Club to en­ter teams.

Ruby Neessen’s 7/8 year team came third place.

Later in the af­ter­noon Kate­lyn Wilkin­son and Chelsea Winn com­peted in the Cham­pion Girl com­pe­ti­tion.

Both girls went up against girls who have been do­ing physie for more than six years and they were very strong.

Chelsea Winn was awarded the Dance Award.

Ladies team mem­bers Ni­cole Wilkin­son, Carolyn Kent and Tif­fany Sutton joined with other ladies to form a Jer­ilderie Ele­men­tary Ladies team, who came third against some very tough com­pe­ti­tion.

The ladies also com­peted in Cham­pion Lady which saw Carolyn Kent progress to the fi­nals.

The group would like to thank their spon­sors for their sup­port dur­ing the year, and look for­ward to the sea­son start­ing up again in Fe­bru­ary 2019.

The Jer­ilderie Red Cross Big Bake Cake Stall last Fri­day raised $500 for drought re­lief.

Thanks have been ex­pressed to all who sup­ported the stall with bak­ing and dona­tions.

Michelle Moloney won first prize in the raf­fle. A lady from Nar­ran­dera pass­ing through town won sec­ond prize, and Lucy Sweeney won third prize.

Tickets were drawn by for­mer Jer­ilderie am­bu­lance paramedic Alis­ter McGre­gor, who also spent the day catch­ing up with old friends.

Jer­ilderie Pub­lic School staff and fam­ily will be en­joy­ing a night of Bare­foot Bowls on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 7 at the Sports Club.

Mean­while, there’s only a cou­ple of weeks to go for the Jer­ilderie Pub­lic School pro­duc­tion of ‘Through the Look­ing Glass’.

Re­hearsals are well un­der­way with He­len Dickie, and lines are be­ing learned.

The date for your cal­en­dars is Wednes­day, Novem­ber 28.

Tickets are still be­ing sold in the JPS fundraiser raf­fle of a John Deere XUV590i.

They are avail­able at the school, the Mur­rumbidgee Coun­cil of­fice, and other venues around town.
