First Business After Hours for 2015

February 11, 2015 in BRCC, Business, Events, Featured

On Thursday 5th February 2015 Chesterfield Australia hosted the first ‘Business After Hours’ for Goondiwindi in 2015.

Manager Andy Bibby spoke of the history of Chesterfield and it was interesting to learn that this company was established in Moree and is a family owned and operated business.

Chesterfield really work hard at being involved in the community and each year contribute approximately $80,000 into the local community to sponsor large events and promote their great business.

Currently Chesterfield employ 21 staff. Their mechanics are some of the best in Australia and the track record for staff retention in this business is pretty remarkable with 2 staff currently celebrating being employees for more than 30 years!

The Business After Hours was held in the Chesterfield Showroom were visitors could view the new model John Deer Lawn Mowers and the entire wall dedicated to Children’s play toys! This business can sometimes be forgotten when it comes to gift giving as it is not in the main street, so remember next time your son wants a brand new tractor or truck to go and check out the range at Chesterfield Australia.

Annual Rotary Duck Race Fun in the Sun!

December 12, 2014 in BRCC, Events, Featured

The Annual Rotary Duck Race was a great day out and a very hot one for all that participated. This year Mann’s Transport allowed their crane to operate over the Goondiwindi Bowls Club to drop the ‘plastic rubber duckies’ from a very high height down onto the bowling green target to decide a winner!. The Rotary Club work tirelessly every year – one of the few clubs left that requires a weekly meeting to keep their busy schedules moving, and a wonderful club working hard in our local community to help others.

Rotary are always looking for new ideas and this year in combination with the Border Rivers Chamber of Commerce, the local Goondiwindi River Dragons Club we started a new annual challenge between the two fast food chains that employ a number of young teens ‘McDonalds V Red Rooster’! The challenge was to race down the MacIntyre River. The best team out of three heats would decide the overall winner!! Red Rooster won the first race with McDonalds coming back from a steady start to win the next two heats making them the overall champions! McDOnalds now proudly display their well deserved trophy in their restaurant to show that this year they were the McChampions!

Red Rooster are still eager to win next year – with their fighting spirit in the first heat showing that they will bring a fierce battle on the River next year!

Please see the photo’s below and watch the video link (IMG_0953) to see what Dragon boating is all about – it’s a great team sport and the local River Dragons Club have a paddle at the Botanic Gardens almost every Sunday. Like the ‘Goondwindi River Dragons Club’ on Facebook to find out more info and join the texting list for weekly paddles.

Rotary look forward to next years event where they plan to revamp and create a wonderful event for the Children of our Community.
