Postie Dave Christie has retired from delivering the mail to all the Upper Lansdowne people. He will now have a small rest before spinal surgery in August.
David has spent about 30 odd years serving the people of Lansdowne and Upper Lansdowne, by renovating and updating the general store. He endeavoured to keep the prices as competitive with Taree as possible.
He also moved the Post Office into the store from its former place next door, so that everyone had a one stop shop. This was very successful and prosperous.
David said he thanked the people of Lansdowne and Upper Lansdowne for their patronage and friendship for all these years. Everyone wishes you a happy retirement, Dave.

It is Wednesday morning when I am writing my column and It has been raining here constantly since yesterday and has been heavy.
All bridges are looking like going under with the water lapping them. The water is over the roads in several places from Taree to Upper Lansdowne.
Hopefully it will stop raining by the weekend.
