Privately owned, but still ‘sacred site’ – Nimbin church burns to the ground

Last night at around 9pm, St Patrick's Catholic Church in Nimbin burned to the ground.

I have been a resident of Brunswick Heads for over 42 years and over that time I have loved the experience. Unfortunately, I am disgusted at the ‘NON CLEANING’ of the two toilet blocks in Brunswick Heads, one at the Sound Shell, the other at Banner Park.

Anyone, particularly visitors to this beautiful area, are also disgusted to find that the toilets are putrid, with the smell overwhelming. The government has and continues to acknowledge that the tourists numbers visiting our Shire are rated as being in the top five visits to Australia. They encourage the world to come here. And here we are, unable to even employ suitable cleaners to clean the mentioned toilets.

I would not be surprised if other public toilets in the Shire are equally bad. I know this not a recent or in any way new problem. There have been many people from various areas within this Shire who have complained about the same thing over many years. And still it continues …

You will note that I have forward copies of this letter to the local papers, TV networks, local and federal members.
