Bailey Bridge to Re-open

Congratulations to the Committee formed in the Codroy Valley area to lobby the respective government departments to re-open the Bailey Bridge. The bridge provides a vital link for people living in that area to commerce and leisure activities. The closure of the bridge meant long commutes for residents to access other communities and services. The impact on many of the merchants is certainly immeasurable as residents sought out alternative locations to do their respective commerce activities. We are very pleased with the news for the sake of our member's health and lifestyle. On behalf of the staff of the Doyles branch of Leading Edge Credit Union, once again congratulations to the committee and residents on making this initiative a reality.
