John Ebsworth’s word around town | COMMUNITY

TWO local identities had significant birthday parties at The Rock on Saturday. It was pleasing to see both groups were surrounded by loving family and friends. Terry Carter enjoyed his night out with a significant representation of brothers and sisters attending. Likewise, for Sharon Gardiner, who also was well supported by family. 

At Terry’s table, one local farmer had a go at the chili dish. Bravest man I’ve come across for many a year; with a jug of water and many volunteers mopping his head and face, the meal was consumed with little left on the plate. Way to go Col!
