This past week has seen some much welcome rain over the area. There is nothing like the natural water to make the vegetables and flowers go ahead in leaps and bounds and husband John has been pleased with his vegetable garden that is producing well - helps keep the fridge full and he has even been giving some away to friends.
Noticed quite a bit of colour in the Manning River and even a rise but thankfully nothing too major to cause problems. The farmers should be happy to see their paddocks taking on a very nice green and plenty of feed for their stock.
Tinonee Historical Society held its first meeting since July and dealt with a number of matters. Members are pleased with the continued progress on the display shed which is having some finishing touches added and hopefully will soon be able to show off a number of larger items.

With Christmas not all that far away, many of the local organisations are starting to plan their Christmas parties and these included the Wingham RSL Sub-branch after their December 1 meeting.
