Ellis moves on

ELLIS Girrard, the country music singer embroiled in a stoush with Tamworth Regional Council and neighbours over his camping on a Manilla property, has bowed to pressure and moved on.

Mr Girrard and his wife Jackie parked their motorhome in a paddock on McDonald St, Manilla, last month after seeking permission from the owner.

They were soon deemed an “environmental hazard” by Tamworth Regional Council and ordered to vacate the property, but vowed to hold their ground.

Following a legal threat last week by neighbour Tim Rees, who claimed the couple’s generator was keeping his family awake and demanded they move on by yesterday, the Girrards finally relented.

They are believed to have moved their bus to another private property in Manilla.
