Book of the Month - 1494 2AY - Local / National News

Be Inspired By Green Cleaning
If you’re after some practical tips or ‘life hacks’ surrounding eco-friendly cleaning, cooking or gardening, then The Ace Book Club book of the month for April is a must read.
The book is the accumulation of knowledge and trial and error by mother and daughter team Alisa and Cynthia Mayne.
“Mum and I actually wrote this ten years ago, and I think this might be the fifth updated edition now,” Alisa explained.
“We grew up self-sufficiently with mum and dad until I was seven, and I’ve been in the food industry, running businesses for 25 years, so we’ve combined our knowledge with lots of simple life tips – some are tried and tested and been around for ages, others are just new techniques to put into your house.

Good Friday Tins at the Ready
Local volunteers and emergency services personnel are uniting in their fundraising efforts for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
After missing out on tin rattling last year, volunteers such as John Vandeven, Captain of Albury Civic Station for Fire and Rescue NSW are looking forward to hitting the streets with their fire trucks and connecting with their local communities.
“To see the people who have saved all year – numerous children that have got their piggy banks and loose change that they save all year, lots of people love to see us and it was so disheartening last year when we couldn’t do it due to COVID,” John said.

Dederang Picnic Races - 1494 2AY - Local / National News

Reconnecting at the Races
Horse racing has been held at Dederang since 1865, but Saturday’s picnic races is perhaps the most keenly anticipated yet.
With COVID impacting sport and community events, President of Dederang Race Club Marcus Goonan says the Kiewa River Valley community is particularly looking forward to reconnecting.
“It’s really highlighted this year by the fact that the football season didn’t get off the ground and the cricket season has certainly been affected,” Marcus told Kylie and Kev.
“Sport is a really big thing in some of these smaller country communities. The Recreation Reserve supports seven different sporting clubs, which is really significant for a small town like ourselves for the community and connection.”

NRL Trial Game for Albury
19 February 2021 | 10:54am
NRL Trial Game for Albury
In a major coup for local rugby league fans, the Melbourne Storm and Newcastle Knights will play their one and only trial match at Albury Sports Ground next weekend.
After the Newcastle Knights deemed the travel risk too high under the current COVID environment to travel to Melbourne, Albury will become the beneficiary of the reschedule.
Storm CEO Justin Rodski says while it’s disappointing for their members and fans in Melbourne, it’s an opportunity to say thanks to the Albury community.
“It’s important that our players get the chance to prepare as best they can for the season ahead which is why we will travel to Albury for the trial,” Justin explained on melbournestorm.com.au
