Leave the spiders at home
While the Goulburn Post loves its readers coming into our office with their news story ideas, it seems our staff are less impressed with people bringing dead animals. Yes, it is amazing that these deadly creatures –such as funnel web spiders and venomous snakes – live among us. But on the question of whether people need to bring them in here in for us to see, the front reception staff are of the opinion that they would be better left where they were caught or found.
Gearing up for charity
This Saturday, October 13 is a chance to dust off the motorbike and enter a Drought Relief Charity Ride. It starts at the Gateway Service Station in Goulburn at 9am. The ride will take in Taralga, Laggan, Crookwell, Gunning, Gundaroo, Bungendore and Tarago and finish at the Gordon Hotel. All bikes are welcome, with an entry fee of $50 per bike. All money raised will go directly to drought relief. Contact Dan on 0428-298 287 for more information.
Remembering our soldiers
If bikes are not your thing, Saint Saviour’s Cathedral will be holding a service of remembrance and thanksgiving on Saturday at 11am. It will honour the 920 men from 41 parishes across the Diocese and from Royal Military College, Duntroon who lost their lives in World War One. Their names are carved on the Cathedral’s Soldiers Chapel. Bishop Trevor Edwards will be the preacher. Morning tea will be served from 9.30am in the parish hall and the community is welcome.
On the air, or up in it?
Did you know, The Post is now a weekly guest each Wednesday morning with 2GCR (Goulburn Community Radio), from 8.30am. You can catch them, and us, on 103.3FM. Volunteers are always welcome at the community station, as presenters or behind the scenes for those a little shy; and guests are welcome, too. Just keep in mind that the lovely little radio shack sits adjacent to a bowling green, and – as one volunteer was startled to find as they took in a morning cuppa and spring sunshine outside – the sprinkler system can flick on and flick all over you, all of a sudden.
