Big field for shield

April 21, 2017

Beautiful Easter weather blessed the large crowd of golfers who turned out for the 27th annual Good Friday Shield for the Royal Children’s Hospital held at the Jerilderie Sports Club.

Bowlers also took to the club greens in the afternoon for some fun bowls.

The Jerilderie racecourse was abuzz with the annual Radio Controlled Model Glider tournament, held over the Easter weekend in near perfect conditions.

Many families and visitors attended the Easter services celebrated at the three Jerilderie churches, starting with the Easter vigil on Saturday night at St Joseph’s Catholic Church, a morning service at St Andrew’s Uniting Church, and an evening service at St Stephen’s Anglican Church, on Easter Sunday.


Happy birthday and best wishes to twins Natalie and Warren Pitt who celebrated their 18th birthday on Monday.

They are looking forward to a shared celebration with family and friends at a later date.


Sympathy is extended to the Roe family following the death of Pat Roe on Easter Sunday morning.

Pat had been a resident of Finley Regional Care for a short while, having previously lived in Jerilderie all her married life. Funeral arrangements are to be advised.


Tidy Towns members visited Coleambally last night for a dinner meeting with the Town Life committee, to share Tidy Towns information.
