Collie remembers: In honour of all 'Collie Boys' who gave their lives during war service, Collie Cardiff RSL Sub Branch will be conducting a Remembrance Day Commemoration Service on November 11. The Service will start at 10.40am at the Soldiers Park Cenotaph. You are reminded it isn't appropriate to applaud at remembrance ceremonies. Following the service, the RSL premises are open to the public for viewing, and drinks are available. Remembrance Day poppies are available outside MLA Mick Murray's office tomorrow. All donations go to the welfare fund for veterans.

Blooming wonderful: Collie is looking blooming wonderful at the moment. Tomorrow night this year's prize winning gardeners will be rewarded in the annual Keeping Up Appearances competition. With so many splendid gardens, it's a shame there were only 22 entrants, although this doesn't detract from the splendour of the gardens which were entered. Lions Trash and Treasure: The Old Ewington School is the venue for Saturday's Lions Club of Collie's Trash and Treasure day. All proceeds go to local charities and projects. Donations can be dropped off at the School, or call Greg on 0498 481 138, if you want items picked up. Back to

Worsley: The annual Back to Worsley and St David's Church celebrations will be on November 10. Beginning with a service in the old church at 10.30am, followed by a communal lunch. Former residents of Worsley and those with a family connection are invited to attend. Arvo tea with difference: An afternoon tea with a difference to raise funds for the Tour de Cure will be held at the Collie Trotting Club at Wallsend Ground on November 10. Entry is a gold coin donation, and you can browse a number of displays and shout yourself afternoon tea.
