Welcome to 2017

… and Welcome Home Maria and Bianca!

MARIA VENUTI AM our favourite local superstar was allowed home from hospital for daughter Bianca’s birthday on New Year’s day following her severe stroke suffered on November 5.


Maria’s recuperation is slow but steady and will remain in rehabilitation for some time to come. Bianca says they appreciate the thoughts and prayers of so many wellwishers and welcome your continuing interest and concerns.


New Year greetings to all our readers and friends from Cathie’s Column and The Weekly Times.

Our office has re-opened and staff are back on deck having enjoyed time off with friends and family.

We look forward to hearing from you so that we can pass on notices about events and meetings and details of the many happenings in the community. Again TWT looks forward to bringing you all the news of people and events in TWT territory.

Next week’s issue will have more details about local Australia Day celebration events. Let’s make 2017 a year to remember.
