Once upon a time, the residents/ratepayers of Bega owned a Town Hall that had been built and paid for by the community and operated by a voluntary committee of residents/ratepayers to serve its needs and interests.
The lies spread by Labor about the cessation of local specialist homelessness services are outrageous and dangerous. Labor’s claims, coupled with two unsuccessful service providers being public about their disappointment in missing out on a local tender, would have the community think that services are being slashed when this isn’t the case.
I hope the council are suitably embarrassed now that all the traffic diverted through Fishpen, due to the road collapse at the start of Arthur Kaine Drive, has now seen the pitiful state of Ocean Drive between Dunns Lane and Elizabeth Street. Not only is this a bus route, but also has the basketball/netball traffic.
The headline in MNW of 30 July (‘Tough talks’) was correct in signalling that now is the critical time for deciding the future shape and content of health services provided by Pambula District Hospital (PDH) and neighbouring facilities. But, above all, let us not forget that the future of PDH is no longer in doubt. That battle has been won.
