Motion to save Lennox pavilion fails

Ballina Cr Eoin Johnston's attempt to save the seventy year old weather shed at Lennox Head went down at council's meeting yesterday, attracting only one other councillor's support.

As the Mayor of the South Burnett Regional Council, which includes the town of Wondai, I was dismayed at an article that was published on your website and I assume in your free community newspaper about Wondai.

I would think that you would not like to see another newspaper publish a negative story about your locality in this way.

I believe Wondai deserves a right of reply.

Cr David Carter, Mayor
