Things to do in Murray Bridge: June 4-10, 2021

Find out about Silent Ripples' memorial service, Rachael Leahcar's Beatles show, cars, coffee and more.

Most of us know what it feels like to grieve a loved one.

But there can be a certain isolation about grieving someone who took his or her own life.

Local support group Silent Ripples is about ending that isolation, and helping people wade through the depths of their despair.

If that sounds like you, come along to the group’s annual memorial service at the Round House, in Murray Bridge, this Sunday.

Help is available for anyone who needs it.
