New year, new op shop
PALS officially opened the doors to its new store on Monday, ushering in the new year with a renewed sense of energy and excitement for 2018.
“I am so happy to see the new store up and running,” said team leader Linda Boyd.
PALS came under heavy fire from the public late in December last year, when CEO Julie Brooks announced the store would be closing its doors. Poor performance sales were considered to be the driving force behind the decision. Though, under intense pressure from the community, Julie has decided to give the store one last go.
Stabbing in Strathmerton
RESIDENTS in Strathmerton say they have no concerns for their safety, following the suspected stabbing of a man last Monday.
“There are always plenty of police around this area, so I know I’m protected,” said resident Danielle Gundrill.
A man was found dead at his property on Williams Road, Strathmerton at 1.40am.
Three great bowlers
WHILE most organised sport took a break over the Christmas period, local bowls clubs made the most of the break to play their club championships.
Experience appeared to be the telling factor at all three clubs - Numurkah, Numurkah Golf and Wunghnu - with the three champions now owning a combined total of 53 championship titles.
Don Staggard took the title at Numurkah, Geoff Sutcliffe won his 28th Golf title, and Nick Davies sneaked home in a great game of bowls at Wunghnu.
