One Nation ‘ghost’ haunting Richmond

Less than a week out from the election, mystery surrounds the One Nation candidate and her connection to the electorate.

xEvery Thursday morning I drive past the new, but empty and unused, sports and cultural centre. Then I get stuck in the Thursday morning traffic bottleneck, which is extra on farmers market day, held at the Butler Street reserve.

Why not hold the farmers market on the grounds of our new facility? It is surely a ‘cultural’ activity?

There is heaps of room, heaps of car parking and toilet facilities. Plus a great promo for the new facility.

It would take traffic away from town, rather than adding to our traffic woes. The bike track goes right to the door, too.

It might be an idea to hold the monthly markets there too. It would be wonderful to see this new facility in use for the markets, such great drawcard for Byron Bay. With an added bonus of parking and a solution to the traffic these events add.
