Centre appreciates gift of staff car

Balclutha’s Cross Recreation Centre took possession of its brand›new Suzuki Baleno staff car last week courtesy of local businesses including Balclutha Motors Group (BMG).

Checking out the new car are (from left) Clutha Recreation Centre committee member Bronwyn Hutton, Cross Recreation Centre manager Noelene Scott and Balclutha Motors owner operator Jared McPhee.

‘‘It’s great to see so many commercial operators getting behind the Rec Centre,’’ McPhee said.

‘‘So many Clutha businesses consistently want to support local organisations and that’s made possible by loyal people supporting us by shopping locally.’’

BMG have been supplying a new car every three years since 2013, with running costs supported by Hollows Timber, Clutha Vets, Fairview and Danone.

‘‘The Cross Recreation Centre committee acknowledges the enormous level of ongoing community support from current and former businesses,’’ Scott said. PHOTO: SUPPLIED
