Bungendore Taxis & Hire Cars 25 Years & new Booking Website www.bungendoretaxi.com.au
2014 is a landmark year for Bungendore Taxis & Hire Cars, being the 25th anniversary of Bungendore’s very own taxi service. The current operator, Ned Kerr, together with his partner, Alison Timberlake, have been at the steering wheel for over twelve years, purchasing the business in January 2002. In 2005 the business expanded with the acquisition of an HC Plate, this brought increased flexibility for the taxi service and also offered local customers the option of a chauffeured limousine service. Throughout its history the business has built its reputation on reliability, punctuality and safety with local drivers who are experienced driving to country conditions.
Bungendore Taxis & Hire Cars looks forward to serving the people of Bungendore and outlying areas for the next 25 years and proudly announces the launching of a new interactive website which allows passengers to book online. The brief to design a simple and easy to use website was given to local designer Tim Anger of enigma CREATIVE MEDIA, whose professional and expert design skills have realised an interactive website which is easy to navigate. Please visit www.bungendoretaxi.com.au to find out what services are offered, and make a booking.
THE HANNAH CABINET
Due to popular demand and substantial interest by Gallery patrons the magnificent Hannah Cabinet will remain at Bungendore Wood Works Gallery through the New Year.
The Cabinet was to be exhibited at the Ballina Regional Gallery in northern NSW from late November through December, however the Ballina Gallery has offered to have the Cabinet remain in Bungendore. This is very much appreciated as the Cabinet has attracted a thirty percent increase in visitors to the gallery since arriving here in late May. It also affords Bungendore Wood Works Gallery an extended period to seek a permanent home for the Cabinet in an institution or Gallery in the Canberra/ACT Region
The popularity of this amazing example of Australian craftsmanship is unprecedented for a major, traditional style cabinet, or for one of any style, to be so admired. Everyday, Gallery staff witness just how much pleasure the Cabinet gives to our visitors. So we offer our sincere thanks to the Ballina Regional Gallery for this opportunity.
