Customer service is extremely important when you are in business, and the provision of a courtesy bus to convey your customers to and from your establishment — or other places — is a great way of rewarding them for their patronage and loyalty.

Well, I would have to say that our very own Tattersalls Hotel would be hard to top when it comes to this area. Seen sitting out the front of Melbourne’s Victoria Hotel on Monday morning was a small yellow vehicle with Tattersalls Hotel Courtesy Bus emblazoned on it.

The bus had conveyed a local group to the city for the Elvis concert and, packed with supplies for the journey, was preparing to head back north.

Good luck to local woman, Rebecca Tunny, and her new venture, Cadell Care.

The Family Daycare Centre, which opened its doors this week, operates from premises at the corner of Moama and Jones Streets.

The service will be welcomed by many working parents with youngsters in the district.

Those interested in using the service can contact Rebecca via Facebook or phone, or alternatively contact the Family Daycare team at Intereach in Deniliquin.

Members of the Mathoura On The Map Committee and other interested people are reminded that the group’s next meeting will be held on Monday night.

The meeting will be held at the Mathoura Visitor and Business Centre at 6pm.

The group is keen to hear of new ideas and suggestions on how Mathoura can become an even better place in which to work, rest and play. Everyone is welcome to attend.

It was the ‘Night of the Bogan’ on Saturday when Mathoura Football Netball Club hosted a Bogan Bingo night in Echuca.

Guys and gals dressed in weird outfits took the Echuca Workers Club by storm and had themselves a ball.

Special mention goes to the senior coach who gave it 110 per cent.

Still on the club, want to get an insight into behind the scenes on a TV cooking show?

Well, don’t miss the club’s next fundraising venture when My Kitchen Rules meets MFNC where former reality show contestants Ros and Karen will be special guests.

It is on July 8, and you can see how your own sausage rolls or cupcakes stack up in the ‘Best Ever’ competition to be judged by the girls.

Mathoura Football Club’s reserves were the only winner when the Timbercutters travelled to Tocumwal on Saturday. Best were Jesse Dinan, Troy Mitchell and Daniel Branch.

Although a disappointing day for the thirds, Tye, Kel, Jaycob, Matty and first-gamer, Brad Jones really shone.

The Under 14s started behind the eight ball with eight boys out, but they put in one of their best fights for the year and produced a great effort on the day. Kaileb Wilson, Connor Thompson, Matthew Moorse, Tomas Banks, Ryder Douglas and Zac Lehman were best.

The youngsters showed the way with a win and a draw to salvage a bit of pride for Mathoura Netball Club.

Under 15s were the winners — by just two goals — with Lily Langman and Tayla Moore taking the awards. Olivia Jachim and Ella McCormick were best for Under 13s in their 23 all draw.

The B grade had their first loss of the season but a return to training will ensure they are back on track really soon. Awards went to Shannon Mills and Mel Vanzetta.

Quick passes from Sophie, in to Bridget who managed to hold out the opposition, and Jenna reading the play so well were highlights of the A grade game while Laura maintained pressure in attack and defence all day.

Emma was ‘best on’ in a losing C Grade side for her work in defence, with Amber and ‘Hoggy’ award winners in C reserve. Bec, Kellie and Tayla were best in Under 17s.

Best wishes to Kath Duggan who is currently a patient in a Melbourne hospital following an accident last week.
