Who wants Krispy Kreme?

June 13 2018

The title is not a joke, there will be some Krispy Kreme donuts to be eaten in Deniliquin on August 4 but only if you order them first.

Deni Theatre Company is doing a fundraiser because they need props, costumes and other items for their production of Alice in Wonderland and so they have chosen selling Krispy Kreme donuts as their method of raising funds.

If you want a dozen original glazed donuts it will cost you $20 but if you want the Fundraiser Assorted pack containing six Original glazed, two Choc Iced, two Strawberry Iced and two Choc Donuts with Sprinkles and it will cost you $24 (take exact change with you when ordering).

To place your order, please see Anthony Myatt at Imperative Apps located at 208 Cressy Street by July 20 and bring your money with you.

Imperative Apps is open Monday to Friday from 9am until 5:30pm so there is plenty of time to see them.

As mentioned earlier the donuts will be available for pick up on August 4 and will be at the Basketball Stadium (why the Stadium will be revealed later).

Further details can be seen on the Deni Theatre Company Facebook page (link will take you to the post).

Deni Big Freeze a success

June 10 2018

A cold and foggy morning did not stop the Deni Big Freeze from taking place at McLean’s Beach.

Just over a dozen people many of them in summer gear lined up to simultaneously run into the Edward River in support of efforts to cure MND (Motor Neuron Disease).

Many more locals watched the event take place despite the cold and foggy conditions, ironically the water was warmer than what it was out of the water.

For those who missed out on seeing the moment live, fear not as the video of the moment is available on the Facebook event page.

Team Uncle Bob’s online fundraising total for Daniher’s Drive – Tour for a Cure has reached $7,284 whilst more money has been raised offline once again showing that Deniliquin is a caring town when it comes to fundraising for good causes.

The drive isn’t until October 11 so there is plenty of time for locals to still contribute and help researchers continue to attempt to end MND as a quality of life draining and life taking disease.

Poll Time (31/5/18)

May 31 2018

We have new poll questions for readers to consider as we ask about our local State MP, Getting cars serviced in Echuca and whether or not a Dog Park is still thought about?

Questions Asked

How well is Austin Evans going as our State MP?
Getting your Holden serviced in Echuca is……
Does Deniliquin need a fenced, off leash dog park with activities and obstacles
Do you think the plan for the Federal Hotel will be done?

Thoughts

It has been a couple of months since the Austin Evans held off Helen Dalton to keep our state seat of Murray in Nationals hands, how well do you think he has done since making his way to Sydney to represent us?

It has been five months since Burchfields shut down forcing car owners to get their cars serviced in Echuca as Holden had no wish to keep operations going, how have car owners managed the trip over the border to get their cars serviced since then?

Dog Parks, this has been a long wished addition to the town and it was an election campaign issue when the local area picked local council, do readers still wish for the park to happen?

There are grand plans for the Federal Hotel with Bed and Breakfast Accommodation, Food and Drink and the addition for a small cinema but some are skeptical that the plan will be completed, do you think it will?

Polls will remain open until Thursday June 14 and posted in Deni Speaks.

Deni Speaks (31/5/18)

May 31 2018

Over the last couple of weeks, we have asked readers their opinions on a couple of questions on Live Exports, Scott’s Park and Recycling.

Below are the results of the three polls.

Should Live Exports be phased out/banned?

Yes – 81%
No – 19%

What do you think of the Scott’s Park  – BMX Park Concept Masterplan?

Like It  – 54%
Dislike It – 31%
It’s OK – 15%

Will Ipswich City Council’s attempt to end recycling kill off Deniliquin’s recycling hopes?

No – 53%
Yes – 47%

Conclusions 

The support of banning or phasing out Live Exports is in agreement with Sussan Ley who believes the practice should be stopped and will side with the ALP on the issue.

The concept masterplan for Scott’s Park has been met favorably by those who answered the poll, locals hope the rubbish and drug problems that has plagued one or both locations do not stay in the remodeling process.

Voters still have faith in kerbside recycling despite major councils trying to pull out of the initiative due to China changing their rules on accepting such material.

Don’t forget the Return and Earn machines are available to recycle your cans but don’t leave them there if the machines are full, if you have cans you can also go to the Apex shed between 10am and 12pm on June 2.

We’ll be back in two weeks with a new edition of ‘Deni Speaks’.
