Berrigan Shire Mayor Bernard Curtin welcomed five residents as new Australian citizens at last Wednesday’s council meeting.

Each pledged their loyalty to Australia and its people in front of a small crowd of friends during the brief Citizenship Ceremony.
Originally from Sri Lanka, the Yoosuff family moved to Finley in 2008.
Cr Curtin said he was privileged to be officially welcoming the ‘‘highly respected medical practitioner’’ to the community.
August Mackell retired from full-time work 15 years ago, and is enjoys his free days in the Southern Riverina. He was born and raised Canada.
Claire Perston is originally from Northern Ireland and is a maths teacher at St Mary of the Angels Secondary College in Nathalia.
The new citizens were given certificates and Australian memorabilia to mark the occasion, including a native plant.
