Colouring Competition Collection: Entries from the Canowindra Phoenix’s Easter colouring competition have now been taken down and can be collected from our Gaskill Street office in the next few weeks during office hours.
Welcome Tayce: The Canowindra Phoenix is delighted to welcome Tayce Gilbert in the role of advertising and sales. While we welcome Tayce, we are sad to have fare-welled Zoe Smith, who brought so much warmth and talent to the role in her time at the Phoenix. Thank you for all your hard work Zoe and we wish you the best in your future endeavours.
We have no doubt Tayce will rise to the challenge of filling Zoe’s shoes and look forward to working with her and welcoming her to the great Central West! You can read about Tayce in this week’s Our Gal on page 11.
