Excitement building for ‘Dancing Stars’

August 03, 2017

Excitement is certainly building for the Biralee Preschool Dancing With The Stars to take place at the Finley RS Club on August 12.

The crew will be hosting a dress rehearsal on Friday, August 11 for those who missed the opportunity for getting tickets on the night.

Doors will open at 12.45pm with the show to start at 1pm and cost at the door will be $10 per person. Coffee, tea and light refreshments will be available.

This is a great opportunity to see the hard work put in by the dancers Ally Rourke/Matt Clarke; Emma Hurlston/Paul Bramley; Anna Jewel/Peter Brunt; Di Gray/Michael Littlejohn; and Marcia Pyle/Greg Lawler.

Voting for the viewers’ choice award can still be made at the Finley Newsagency. $1 equals one viewer vote.


Organisers of Finley’s Farmers Market to be held this Saturday are hoping for some of the early spring weather we have been experiencing as this will enable the market to be held at Railway Park in Endeavour St.

If there is inclement weather, the market will move to the Finley Memorial Hall.

There will be the usual stalls with fresh produce from local farmers and Rosemary Tilley’s seedlings are continuing to prove very popular.

Children are kept happily occupied at the kids table while the oldies can peruse the various stalls or sit and relax with a coffee and bacon and egg roll. Another welcome addition is the coffee van brought to the market by Finley’s Teapot Café.

This is such a great opportunity to get together with family and friends at the park where there is plenty to keep the children occupied and people can relax in the pleasant surroundings.


Well known Finley identity Marj Kable has handed over the reins of president of Finley Hospital Auxiliary after 16 years in office.

However, her association with the organisation will continue as a member of the committee as she has been part of the organisation for longer than most can remember.

Marj has held all executive positions during her time and has worked diligently to raise funds for the Auxiliary to provide extra facilities at the local hospital.

She is very proud to announce that her association with the medical fraternity will continue with her grandson Ashley Kable about to begin training in Melbourne as a paramedic.

Marj was born and grew up in Finley attending local schools before marrying her husband Keith and having three children — Kathy Hardman (Melbourne), Helen Cooling (Finley) and Anthony (Finley).

She has been involved in many charity organisations in the local community and has a passion for assisting at the Hospital Op Shop.

She would like to encourage anyone in the local area to become a part of the group as it takes quite a number of volunteers to keep the shop manned. New members are always welcome.

Her other great passion is the Finley Log Cabin Museum which she says has so many interesting exhibits of times gone by. Well done, Marj.


Winner of last Saturday’s Finley Lions Club wood raffle was Christine Malseed.

Christine has been a great supporter of this fundraiser over the years and was getting a little disheartened at not having any success.

However, she has been the winner twice this year so keep up the good work, Chris.


The Finley Uniting Church will be holding the annual Hymn Sing-a-long this Saturday, August 5 at the church hall, Coree St, starting at 2pm.

A delicious afternoon tea will be served during the afternoon and all are welcome to go along and take part.

This is a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon as the singing is of very high quality and a pleasure to join in.


Just a reminder of the Anglican Ladies Guild beetles afternoon planned for Thursday, August 10, starting at 2pm in the church hall.

For those who are not aware of what is involved in a beetles event, this is a great opportunity to go along and join in the fun while learning the game.

Entry is $10 which includes a ticket in the IGA voucher raffle which will be finalised that day and afternoon tea is provided.
