Cribb has only been bowling for around two years and is showing all the signs of a future bowls champion.
The Lansdowne Soccer Club women's team went down 4 -0 against Cundletown last Friday evening. There was a lot of community support with a good turn out of local people who came out to cheer our ladies on.

Kundle Moto RFS
The Kundle Moto brigades' past and present members would like to thank Marie Meyer for her kind donation of our original KM tanker back to the members of the brigade.
The tanker was originally purchased by brigade members in the founding years and built.
The tanker was in service until it was replaced by an international truck which was also built by the members.
After being notified by Facebook members that the truck was being auctioned, the crew decided to see if it had sold, and after a few phone calls we were contacted by Marie. It hadn't sold and was going to be scrapped if we didn't want it.
So, on 21, May 2022, members travelled to Tamworth to relocate the tanker back to its hometown.
At this stage it's unclear what level of restoration the tanker will undergo, however it is great to have a piece of our history back on the Mid Coast.
A big thankyou to Vern Taylor, Paul Pereira and our brigade members for making this possible.
