History given context at heritage centre

NUMURKAH & District Historical Society knows how lucky it is to have such a great location to house its collection in its old bank building on Melville St, and it is determined to make the most of it.

The society’s newest display is something truly special, as not only the contents, but the room itself, is an iconic piece of local history. 

Shire adopts 2019/2020 budget

MOIRA Shire Council adopted its 2019/20 budget, along with the 2019-23 Strategic Resource Plan (SRP), at a special council meeting last Wednesday night.

Mayor Libro Mustica thanked the 33 submitters who participated in the community consultation process, as well as the people who came along to the community information sessions to talk about the budget.


Purples win fierce battle

IN a battle between traditional rivals, Nathalia was able to overcome a determined Numurkah outfit in the last quarter to extend a two goal margin it carried for most of the day, to a 37 point win.

In an entertaining game early, the ball moved at break-neck speed up and down the ground.

With stoppages becoming very physical, the pivotal match up of ruckmen Mitch Price and Brodie Ross, although fairly even, saw the stronger Nathalia mids, Bailey Bell and Drew Barnes, assisted by the linking run of defenders Harrison Hawks and Ned Nihill, create scoring opportunities, resulting in a three goal to one first quarter.
