Things to do in Murray Bridge: May 6-12, 2022
All you need to know about Mothers Day, the next Business Murray Bridge breakfast, Faulty Towers and more.
If you’re likely to catch up with your mum this weekend, don’t forget to pick up something nice for her – it’s Mothers Day this Sunday.
Murray Bridge Marketplace will get ahead of the game with a market day on Saturday, and a few local venues have special lunches planned.
I’ll give a quick shout-out to the Business Murray Bridge breakfast next Wednesday, too.
You’ll get a free cooked brekky, and the main guest speaker will be from McMahon Services, the company currently doing $36 million worth of work on the old road bridge.
