Byron’s new road: the good and not so

After more than 30 years of talk, debate, disagreements, tears and political gridlock, Byron Bay has a new road to divert traffic from the CBD to the southern end of town.
Just a quick warning to shoppers at Ocean Village Shopping Centre.
On Friday, my husband and I were packing groceries into the boot of our car (opposite the bakery), when I felt severe pain, as though someone had punched me in the upper arm.
We didn’t know what had happened until we reached home, unpacked the shopping, and found a 5cm diameter rock at the bottom of one bag. Quite a large bruise emerged within an hour.
As we are not ‘out there’ people, I believe this was a random attack and not directed at me personally. The outcome could have been much worse had the rock struck a little higher and actually hit my head.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? If so, maybe the centre could look at ‘roving security’ to be on the lookout for likely ‘moron’ suspects.
Please note that I have emailed centre management regarding this matter, and in no way do I hold any ill will towards the centre.
