Spring is almost upon us and one of the gardener's most annoying pests will be here again. The weekly bait card system is now underway. All financial members are encouraged to collect their cards every Tuesday at the Eden Community Access Centre just as they did last season. New adherents to the cause this season are asked to pay $12 which allows them access to bait cards weekly from now until April 2018. Any queries contact Ann or Mick on 64962110.


Eden's free Pathology Service - USE IT OR LOOSE IT     

Eden community Health CentreDO YOU KNOW.... that we have a FREE pathology service, right HERE in Eden? It is convenient, fast and professional, but will be another service to close its doors unless patient numbers increase.

With ANY hospital procedure, you MUST have your pathology done through the hospital system (i.e. the public pathology service). If this service closes in Eden, our only choice will be that WE MUST TRAVEL to BEGA.


When your GP hands you your pathology order, it is YOUR OWN CHOICE to take it to the paid service that's printed on the letterhead, or to take that order to the public facility for the very same procedures that will cost you NOTHING.

Please give pathology staff Sue a call on  6496 1436 for a chat about how their service may meet your requirements, or pop in to see her at the Eden Community Health Centre, located upstairs at the rear of Twofold Arcade. There is even an elevator to take us right to her door!

Please - HELP TO RETAIN EDEN'S SERVICES - all we have to do is use them
