Ian says good­bye af­ter 30 years

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

Af­ter nearly 30 years pro­vid­ing a much ap­pre­ci­ated ser­vice to Jer­ilderie and dis­trict, Ian Sned­don has sold his can­vas and up­hol­stery busi­ness.

Health con­cerns have forced Ian to make the dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion to part with the suc­cess­ful busi­ness, which he has built up from noth­ing since Novem­ber 19, 1989.

New owner, Alis­tair Nicholls, served his up­hol­stery ap­pren­tice­ship with Bill Row­lands in Fin­ley, some years ago.

Ian bought Bill’s busi­ness in 2002, sub­se­quently sell­ing it some years later.

Alis­tair has be­come a fa­mil­iar face in the Jer­ilderie busi­ness over the last year while Ian has been re­ceiv­ing med­i­cal care.

Ian said he was grate­ful for all the sup­port he has re­ceived over the 30 years from his many cus­tomers and friends, and his up­hol­stery ‘trainees’.

He en­cour­ages lo­cal peo­ple to con­tinue to come through the door and keep Alis­tair busy dur­ing open­ing days.

Alis­tair took over the busi­ness of­fi­cially on Satur­day De­cem­ber 1, and will be open on Mon­days, Tues­days and Wed­nes­days at this stage.

We wish both Ian and Alis­tair and their fam­i­lies well for the fu­ture.

An in­vi­ta­tion has been re­ceived from the Depart­ment of In­dus­try Wa­ter (DOI Wa­ter), to an im­por­tant meet­ing to­day to learn about projects that are set to im­pact the wa­ter sup­ply for all the com­mu­ni­ties be­tween the Mur­rumbidgee and Murray Rivers.

To­day’s meet­ing is at the Jer­ilderie Civic Hall from 1.30pm, at which DOI Wa­ter ‘‘will pro­vide an over­view of the pro­pos­als, and would like to hear your con­cerns and as­pi­ra­tions’’ with re­gard to the projects pro­posed for the Yanco Creek.

This meet­ing may be cru­cial for in­form­ing de­ci­sions bear­ing on the fu­ture of our town and re­gion, so your at­ten­dance and sup­port would be ap­pre­ci­ated.
