Eden Cash Mob

Saturday, February 10, was Eden’s 26th Cash Mob, with Cash Mob now in its third year. It was great to see some new faces join in the mission to help support local retailers.

The business we mobbed was Eden Under the Covers. Owner Tammy O'Malley was honoured to be hosting the mob and was able to showcase her new lines of giftware and soaps, there were also some great specials on offer.

One thing Tammy wanted to say is that she loves being part of retail in the local area and is so grateful for the wonderful support the shop has received since opening 20 months ago. All shoppers walked away with a gift.

Morning tea was enjoyed at Picken Chicken, Terrianne Jarvis was kept busy on the coffee machine and had a coffee and cake deal. They also would like to thank everyone for their support all year round.

Laura won Roses Property Management voucher and Greg Won the Our Eden voucher but thought Zoe could shop better than himself.

Hope to see you all on March 10 to support the next Cash Mob.

Library helpers

Programs and partnerships officer at the Bega Valley Shire Library, Scott Baker, said that the library is looking for more volunteers for the district’s home library service.

The service provides library materials to residents who are house-bound for medical reasons and who are unable to visit a library; without volunteers this service would just not happen. 

Full training and ongoing support is provided for home library volunteers, which involves selecting materials, delivering them to a client and collecting them for return. Normally, three hours once a month is required.

To find out more about volunteering or if you would like to use the home library service, please email Scott Baker at sbaker@begavalley.nsw.gov.au or phone 6499 2172.
