Visiting Family: Tracey Hughes- Butters, daughter of Nevin and Verona Hughes conducted a Maths Consultancy Conference at Wagga last weekend and took the opportunity to call into Grenfell to visit the family before returning home to Merimbula.
Kathy and David Goode from Albury were home last weekend to visit Kathy’s Mother Elsie Southwell. They all enjoyed an evening out for dinner and were joined by Kathy’s sister in law – Kathy Southwell and her children Thomas and Anita.
Believe it or not, I came across a Grenfell Record August 1983 with a photo of Kathy and David at a Blue Light Disco in Grenfell.
Visitors to Ken and Sally Norrie over the weekend were long time friends Harry and Robyn Neal of Lugarno.
The four enjoyed dining out in Grenfell on a few occasions and were very pleased with the hospitality of this great town.
Warwick and Jan Armstrong of Seaforth were in Grenfell over the weekend visiting his brother Justyn and his wife Sue Armstrong.
Warwick and Justyn’s parents the late Fred and Norma Armstrong were the owners of TF Armstrong and Sons (International Harvester) in Main Street, now McClintock’s Machinery – Case IH Dealers.
Fred Armstrong was known for being the first person to convert steel rim tractor and combine tyres to pneumatic tyres.
The group were photographed with long time friend Hugh Moffitt when they were out for dinner on Saturday evening.

He loves his bath (grandfather Bob was a great swimmer so was dad Mark, so he says. Charlie stays awake during a football match.
He has season tickets to the Rugby and has attended 3 matches in 6 weeks in Canberra with his parents. (He will not be following St George to his grandfather John’s horror).
He is as cute as a button and very much loved
Grenfell Speed Shear: Congratulations to all connected with this event. A fantastic day and evening was had by all. It was amazing to see the capabilities of these skilful men and YES women. Kat Glaessens from Belgium currently working in Grenfell was a placegetter in one of the grades and certainly kept the crowd entertained.
Another great event was the demonstration of blade shearing. If you missed this great event, I believe a demonstration of blade shearing will be held on the Saturday of the Grenfell Henry Lawson Festival in June.
Whilst this Speed Shear competition event was entertaining for the older members of the community, the Grenfell Lions Club were kept very busy with a multitude of younger children on their famous jumping castle. Even when it was time to pack up the children were on hand to assist with the dismantling of the castle.
Happy Easter: Best wishes to all families for a happy and holy Easter. If you are travelling please drive carefully, remember double demit points are in effect over this weekend as well.
As it is also school holidays many more children will be out and about – hence another reason to be extra careful.
Welcome to all visitors, enjoy your stay.
