Tommy Jeffs Leaves Canowindra: This week will mark a sad day for not only Canowindra but the Central West, with Tommy Jeffs leaving our town to take up residence by the sand and the sea, on the NSW North Coast.
Tommy has been an advocate, a fundraising powerhouse, a successful businessman with both a café and the hugely popular accommodation and events facility of Montrose House, where the renovation not only stuns with beautiful furnishings, but has been impeccably renovated by Tommy and firmly put Canowindra on the map when Better Homes and Gardens TV Show came to visit.
He has been instrumental in raising thousands of dollars for various charities across the Central West and has been an integral member of community organisations, including the Lions Club of Canowindra.
Above all, Tommy is a friend to many of us, especially here, in The Canowindra Phoenix office. We will miss you greatly Tommy, and wish you the best of luck in your seaside move.
Lost: An older gentleman from town lost a walking crutch out the front of the butchers shop late afternoon on Friday, 14th January. He lent it up against his car when he was putting his groceries in but forgot about it and drove off. Apparently, someone did see it in the gutter, but when they went out later it was gone. If anyone has information about the lost walking crutch please contact Coady-Ella Watson via email: Coady-Ella.Watson@cabonne.nsw.gov.au or phone 6344 1199.
