Friendship group

Tinonee Friendship Group’s first gathering for 2019 at the Tinonee Memorial School of Arts Hall last Wednesday morning from 10am-noon.

Several new residents to the area came along and were warmly welcomed by coordinator Judy Cluss and members alike. The March gathering will be looking at attending the NSW Seniors Concert to be held at Club Taree.

New members are most welcome to come along to the group which enjoys a cuppa and chat, sometimes special outings and lunches in and around the local area are enjoyed along with guest speakers at other times.

Peg Leg Bridge works

After a major task was undertaken to remove the huge trees around the southern side of the little hump bridge on the Tinonee to Wingham road, everyone is waiting to see what the next stage will bring.

The clearing has certainly opened the approaches and giving a greater view and we hope all drivers will extend care and courtesy to their fellow drivers when they near the approaches.

Wingham Anglican Parish church news

The change of Faith and Fellowship at 4, from Sunday to Friday afternoons at 5.30pm in conjunction with the Wingham Anglican Youth Group which begins at 3.45pm seems to be proving popular.

Happy Valentine’s Day

To all those young and not so young couples Happy Valentine’s Day to you all for Thursday, February 14.

Townsville floods

Even though our daughter Fiona self evacuated to friends on Sunday evening February 3 with her six chooks, the water didn’t get into her home as it was off the ground thankfully. But when speaking to her  last weekend she said the moisture and humidity has caused a lot of mould to appear in her home and will have to be removed. 

We are thankful she has come through with some minor problems but better off than many others who have lost so much.

Tinonee Hall

Committee members of Tinonee Memorial School of Arts Hall met Monday February 4, for a special meeting to update their constitution and refine several points.
