United cricket club members and families have started their local yearly deliveries of the phone book incorporating the Yellow and White Pages.
The Ulladulla club will hand out 11,000 copies of the book - that’s 10 pallets - between Kioloa and Bendalong and their distribution payment will raise funds for the club.
If they deliver them all they will get around $4000 to put towards equipment purchases and maintenance.
“That would just about cover a new ball for each of five junior and five senior teams for 10 weeks of the season,” said club committee member Mal Granger.
The 2016/17 phone book covers Nowra, Batemans Bay, Ulladulla and Narooma.
“We can leave one at the door of a residence if no-one is home but we must deliver personally to someone at each business house,” Mr Granger said.
The club is dropping off over two weeks including three weekends.
The biggest single recipient the cricketers visit each year is Australia Post.
They will get roughly 3000 copies to split three ways between the Ulladulla and Milton Post Offices and the Ulladulla Mail Centre.
Between 20 and 30 club members and their families deliver to set areas, usually close to where they live.
Molly Jones at Flowers on Wason in Ulladulla finds the book handy to look up clients’ street addresses for deliveries.
“It’s quicker and saves me or my staff going out the back of the shop to use the computer,” she said.
“For older clients who may not be as computer literate, there is also no data cost.”
