Guide Dogs southern NSW/ACT regional manager Ross Still visited Henty’s Men’s Shed to discuss degenerative eye problems. Cards were handed around indicating a range of eye problems and how these affect sight. Some problems are not obvious at first, as indicated by the photos, as our eyes tend to compensate to provide a “whole” and healthier picture. The talk was interesting to the point that cups of tea or coffee were left untouched on tables and eventually went cold. Guide Dogs southern NSW/ACT will have a stand at the Henty Field Days from September 22-24. The shed has booked Ross for another visit in two years’ time.
A sub-committee of the Henty Community Development Committee has been formed to organise a celebration for the completion of Henty’s Main Street redevelopment. Hot mix will be part of the last stage of the works, and November 9 has been chosen for the town celebration. The date will coincide with the Bendigo Bank branch’s 20th anniversary. The group is made up of development committee members and local business proprietors. It is tentatively looking at putting on a street fair.
