New depot

SHIRE president Scott Uppill last week welcomed Mia Davies MLA, community members and shire staff to the official opening of the new shire depot.

He said it was a great improvement on the former depot and he was sure the staff would enjoy the new amenity.

Ms Davies officially declared the building open, congratulating the shire on the upgrade.

A guided tour took place before those present enjoyed lunch.

At a cost of $680,000 it was funded by the Royalties for Regions Country Local Government Fund.

Seniors compete

THE 14 seniors who travelled to the recent Wheatbelt Games in Merredin voted it a great couple of days.

The group, organised by Mary Harrison, travelled in a bus.

They took part in several activities throughout the competition.

Though the team didn't come home with the winning medals they competed fiercely and did well in some events and thoroughly enjoyed the facilities and hospitality of Merredin.

Already they are talking about next year's games at Lake Grace.

On May 22 the team will head off to Northam for another games competition and practice is already underway every Monday at 10am.

Meeting with a difference

LOCAL CWAmembers have planned a meeting with a difference in the form of a Thermomix demonstration for their next get together.

CWA ladies have always been noted for their cooking skills so we can expect great things after this meeting.

KATS' results mixed

IT was mixed results for KATS teams in their second games of the season with the young reserve team going down narrowly to Quairading 5-8 to 6-7.

Best players were Nick and Aaron Taylor, Paul Giles, Corey Dixon and both Lewis Henrys, senior and junior. Corey Dixon was the best goal-scorers with three.

In the league match it was an even tussle up until half time but the KATS kicked away in the last two quarters to run out winners 17-11 to 12-11.

Best players were Justin Russell, Joel Innes, James Venturini, Alex Leake and Jack Charlton, while Chris Maguire was best goal-scorer with five.
