Glen Innes Rugby league stalwart Pat Lonergan has called a meeting for those in town who want to see the Magpies flying in 2017.

Mr Lonergan has asked for people that are interested in helping the club to reform a senior team for next season’s competition to meet at the Services club on Tuesday July 26 at 7.30 pm.

Lonergan said that reforming a viable committee will be on the agenda.

“We do need people who are interested in helping out for next season and that will be high on the agenda for the meeting,” he said.

“We need everyone in town who has an interest in reforming the Magpies to be at the meeting.

“If we get a viable amount of numbers we will look to elect a committee and fill office bearer positions.”

Mr Lonergan said the Magpies have had a meeting with country rugby league to discuss ongoing issues.

“We have talked about issues such as travel in the group 19 competition,” he said.

“We also canvassed the exorbitant costs relating to insurance and other essential items to run a club.

“The Country Rugby League has said they will visit Glen Innes to try and sort out the issues that the Magpies and a lot of other clubs within the group 19 competition have identified.

“We will be talking about all of these things at the meeting and we hope that we can get the Magpies back and strong for the 2017 season.”

The residents are opposed to Benedict’s proposed $4.5 millionrecycling plant on Anderson Road,Smeaton Grange, which is on exhibition for community feedback until August 26.

The proposed site would process a variety of material including, glass, metal, rubber andpaper, but would not accept hazardous materials including asbestos.

Resident spokeswomanChris Harrissaid the meeting with Benedict’s general manager Ian Collier, representatives from NSW Planning and Environment, the Environmental Protection Authority and Camden MP Chris Patterson was informative and constructive.

“The meeting helped to clarify information about myths and facts about the application,” she said.

“[Our] primary concerns regarding the proposed facility will be the potential impact on surrounding neighbours, business and schools.

“If the proposal is approved it is important that residents and business have had the opportunity to list their concerns.”

Mr Collier was also pleased with the meeting and was glad to have a chance to answer resident questions.

“It was a very, very constructive meeting and it gave us an opportunity to respond to resident concerns and take them on board,” he said.

Mr Collier said it was important for residents to remember that Benedict was not new to the recycling business and had plenty of experience at other sites.

He said the company would look into whatever adjustments could plausibly be made to the proposal to meet relevant resident concerns.

Mr Patterson said he also had some concerns with the proposal “as it stands” and would like to see “a number of issues” addressed.

He said any resident who is concerned with the development should contact him or make a submission.

To make a submission visitmajorprojects.planning.nsw.gov419论坛or write to Department of Planning and Environment, Attn: Director –Industry Assessments, GPO Box 39, Sydney, NSW, 2001.

The Peter Cole Tennis Academy recently held a series of holiday clinics as part of their junior development program.

ANYONE FOR TENNIS? Local tennis coach Peter Cole

The clinics were held in Glen Innes, Guyra and Tenterfield with over 124 juniors participating throughout the holidays.

Mr Cole said the sessions help juniors with their social skills and wellbeing as well as primarily focusing on their technique and speed and agility.

“The clinics are a good way for children to have some fun but also if we identify some talent we can nurture that,” he said.

“Tennis is a game that you can learn and get better at, but we do find a good number of children have a natural hand and eye coordination that suits the game.

“The Glen Innes children enjoyed themselves and we did see some good talent amongst the participants.”

Mr Cole said the clinics would not have been such a success without the participation of local parents.

“Many thanks go to all parents who supported our clinics, without their help and support these camps would not be held,” he said.

“I would also like to thanks my junior coaches Olivia, Angus, Kaleb, Steph, Kasey and Andrew.

“Many of the kids commented that they enjoyed getting instruction from an adult as well as people their own age.”
