In 2018 Lacie Ashford started Wollemi Physical Culture in Kandos. Lacie herself grew up learning Physical Culture and now teaches a range of different ages for our girls. This has been a huge success for our town and young ladies who thoroughly enjoy this activity. We recently held our first Competition and presentation day in Kandos on December 16. Lacie will continue this year and we all look forward to the new year. Rebecca Green
Rural Fire Service Busy
The crop of recent thunderstorms has kept the Cudgegong Valley RFS teams busy, responding to fires and blacking out the smouldering logs. Just remember these volunteers are working in the heat of the days in fire conditions, when you and I are complaining about the air conditioning. To find out about the fires in your district you can access the information online: rfs-fire information-fires near me. This will tell you the status of fires in NSW. More specific information can be found at Mudgee Fire Control 6372 4434.
Kandos Swimming Pool Popular
For a refreshing dip during the hot weather, nothing beats the local pool. The extra heat of recent weeks has seen daily attendance climb to 200 in Kandos, with between 100-200 about average. The Kandos Swimming Pool run by the Mid-Western Regional Council is open seven days a week and fully supervised by trained staff. Opening times are 6am to 8am then 9.30am to 8pm up until January 31.
S. Box Rally Fundraiser for the Cancer Council
Laurie and Helen Cole plan to drive a car costing less than $1000 from Perth to Sydney, via Oonadatta to raise money for the Cancer Council. Called the’ Sh*t Box Rally’, in reference to the quality of the cars, about 250 cars will start the rally. Needing $5000 to join the rally, Laurie and Helen have been approaching local businesses in Mudgee, Kandos and Rylstone for sponsorship. Tupperware National Party Day was on Saturday, so a party was held at the Rylstone Club.
A raffle of Tupperware products, organised by Vicki Cook, will be run and proceeds go to the Cancer Council via Sh*t Box Rally organisation. So far, the organisation has made 14 million for the Cancer Council. Laurie and Helen have bought a Commodore Station Wagon to complete the trip. Registration, tyres and brakes are not included in the purchasing costs and the rally has a full support crew to keep the cheap cars going. Travelling through the centre of Australia is a testing experience, even in a good four, wheel drive vehicles, but driving a Sh*tbox? Many adventures are bound to happen. To donate or sponsor Laurie and Helen, you can phone 0428 794 544 or online firstname.lastname@example.org The large number of people travelling through the district will impact on local businesses and it should be good fun talking to the rally drivers and checking the S. Box cars.
