Jo Garnett, Bogangar

Woolies is coming to town and with it we are losing the village feeling that many of us loved about Cabarita. To see the building site now is to begin to realise just how big this complex is going to be and the impact that it is going to have on us all.

Shame on those who approved it. Let’s hope the new councillors can work together to ensure we get better development in this lovely shire of ours.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. Honestly, look around you? Cabba hasn’t been a “village” for a long time. The village and it’s beauty was wiped out years ago to make way for your ugly box homes most of you people live in. And then you come and complain about the progress going on around you?? No sympathy here sorry….
