Although last week’s rain was very welcome it
has prevented the completion of the new carpark
at Upper Murray Health & Community Services
“The carpark was unable to be asphalted in
time for the opening of our new development,”
said UMHCS CEO Maxine Brockfield.
“This means that access to the agency will
remain the same for the time being,” she advised.
“We wish to thank everyone for their patience
and remind clients that they will need to enter
from Kiel Street - the same entrance they have
been using for the past few months.
“We need three sunny days prior to asphalting
and no overnight fog, therefore we are unsure of a
completion date for the carpark.
“Keep an eye out in the Corryong Courier for
an update on when the new entrance will be open.
“We will continue to have the temporary
entrance manned by volunteers and staff to direct
clients to the newly developed reception area,”
Ms Brockfield added.

Church future remains unclear
A meeting on Sunday to decide the fate of the
Holy Trinity Anglican Church at Cudgewa failed
to decide on the fate of the building.
The meeting was attended by thirteen people with
six of those being Cudgewa residents.
After much discussion it was agreed to hold
another meeting within the next month during
which other residents would be contacted to see
what interest lies within the Cudgewa community
to keep the church open and maintain the building.
