Mixed bags in roadside clean-up

by

Nine Tidy Towns members turned out on a damp Sunday morning to collect 12 chaff bags of assorted rubbish along Finley Rd.

They were somewhat bemused by the unusual number of egg cartons — 20 — adorning the south bound roadside, and not a chook in sight.

One odd sock and half a thong were also found among the usual coffee cups, drink bottles and cigarette packets.

Wouldn’t you think people would keep their rubbish in their cars until they get to the next stop, where they could off-load into a roadside bin?

Jerilderie Public School Year 5 and 6 students attended the matinee of the Finley High School MADD performance last Wednesday.

They thoroughly enjoyed the display of talent on show, as did those of us lucky enough to see the evening performance.

Thanks to the Jerilderie people who bought tickets in the MADD raffle outside IGA recently; sadly, none of the prizes came home to Jerilderie. The three winners were from out of town.
