New dynamic

CONGRATULATIONS to the two new councillors elected in the recently held local government council elections.
While I am perhaps a bit biased having acted as Di Granger’s campaign manager, I see both councillors (Granger and Bell) bringing a new dynamic to council debate through simply being new to town and relying on their experience around policy, procedure and process to deliver good decisions.


Frightening risk

With new faces on the Toodyay Shire Council and at least four councillors who oppose the proposed bauxite mine near Morangup, I hope the council will be looking seriously at the concerns expressed in the submissions received about the Draft Local Planning Strategy that was available for comment until November 3.


Goodbye and thanks

Recently someone said they didn’t believe in volunteering because no-one appreciated what you do, in a short time you are forgotten and who helps when you need it?

After 20 years of volunteering in Toodyay I have only this to say– who cares?


Garbage warning

I WAS the General Superintendent of the Hamilton Bermuda Corporation for many years.
Garbage disposal is a world-wide problem.
