‘Roo vic­tim’s car goes miss­ing

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Where did it go? And who moved it? The Vic­to­rian long week­end will be re­mem­bered by one young Mel­bourne man with mixed feel­ings.

The young mo­torist was trav­el­ling north to Dubbo when he col­lided with a kan­ga­roo just north of Jer­ilderie, late Satur­day night.

He left his bat­tered car on the side of the road and came in to town to seek as­sis­tance.

The tow truck driver he con­tacted made the trip out the road only to come back and say that the car wasn’t there!

Af­ter a few false starts, on Sun­day morn­ing the young driver was able to talk to Fin­ley Po­lice, who had re­ceived a re­port of a car par­tially sub­merged in the Bil­l­abong Creek near the golf course foot­bridge. It was the miss­ing car.

How it got there is a mys­tery, and prob­a­bly a mat­ter for the po­lice!

Suey and Ge­off Ham have re­cently wel­comed their fourth grand­daugh­ter, with the safe ar­rival of Freya Marie Nield, at Echuca Hospi­tal, on Wed­nes­day, March 6.

Freya is the sec­ond child for Ali­cia and Jonathan Nield, and a sis­ter for Edith, 20 months.

Freya is the fifth grand­child for Rus­sell and Suzanne Nield of ‘Be­nilke’, Bal­ranald.

All are well. Suey and Ge­off have been en­joy­ing grand­par­ent­ing time in Echuca, keep­ing fit and on the move.

Don’t for­get to book your places at the an­nual free Se­niors Lun­cheon.

It will be held at the Jer­ilderie Civic Hall on Fri­day, March 29, start­ing with morn­ing tea at 10am.

Tick­ets are to be picked up by close of busi­ness on Fri­day, March 22, at Mur­rumbidgee Coun­cil’s Jer­ilderie of­fice.

The theme for this year is Class of 2019. Let your imag­i­na­tions run riot.

Around 50 peo­ple at­tended the fu­neral ser­vice for Mary Green be­side Lake Jer­ilderie last Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

Peter and his fam­ily are grate­ful for the sup­port given them, and for the cards and mes­sages of sym­pa­thy they have re­ceived.

Four mem­bers of the Jer­ilderie Hospi­tal Aux­il­iary trav­elled to Urana last Tues­day for the UHA Zone Day held at the Urana Bowl­ing Club.

The UHA State Pres­i­dent and Mur­ray Re­gional Rep­re­sen­ta­tive were both present.

Mem­bers en­joyed the two ex­cel­lent guest speak­ers, and branch re­ports were var­ied and in­ter­est­ing.

More March birth­days for Jer­ilderie in­clude Zenda Pur­cell 5th, Lyn James 9th and Mick Bald­win 24th.
