"Leeton is a wonderful and caring community and it is a pleasure to work and serve a community that is so involved with the welfare and support of each other," John said. "All the staff are either born or bred in Leeton, or have lived most of their life in this area. This means they know and have good working relationships with most of the community."
With technology constantly evolving, the team has its finger on the pulse.
"Currently we are seeing a trend towards mobile phones that can handle most of the needs that users require in a mobile communications device, such as better camera capabilities, more internal memory, faster processing power, better security, increased GPS accuracy, and more vibrant and brighter display screens," John said.
"These improved features, with selected third-party applications, have pushed the mobile phone into an essential, must-have communications device.
"We have also seen a trend towards cellular repeater devices that can amplify and repeat the mobile phone signal inside homes, buildings and vehicles. This has been a great advantage for customers that use mobile phones and data devices in more remote locations."
