THE quiet of the dawn was both serene and beautiful as some 300 people gathered on the lawns surrounding the Toodyay War Memorial for this year’s Anzac Day dawn service. 

As day was breaking and light appeared through the magnificent memorial lemon scented gum trees, the gathering was hushed and reflective, taking in the moment and the reason they were there on this day, at that hour and in this place.

Toodyay Police Station

A BUSY Easter period for local police saw two motorcycles impounded for 28 days after their riders were clocked at 157km/h on Toodyay Road.

Off to the polls in October

THERE will be no extraordinary election to fill the Toodyay Shire Council vacancy caused by the resignation of Cr Kate Wood. 

Instead the WA Electoral Commissioner has agreed that her East Ward seat can be included in elections in October this year when four councillors are up for election for a four-year term.
