Nuclear Submarines – just a foot in the door

In the next few months we will hear a lot about how superior nuclear-powered submarines are. Vice Admiral Mike Noonan is even claiming superior stealth characteristics – which is simply not true. Yes, they tend to be faster. This is great if you want to go thousands of kilometres in a matter of days. But they are also much more expensive.

Eureka Hall president, Scott Abrahams, says organisers are having a ‘scrap metal drive to raise much needed funds for our little community hall’.

‘From October 19, large scrap skips will be placed at 149-151 Federal Drive for people to donate their scrap metal.

‘The metal will be recycled and the funds used to help fund a new kitchen at the hall and, hopefully, a new outdoor area. The updates are sorely needed as the hall, built in 1906, is starting to show its age.

‘We were recently awarded a $5,000 community grant by Byron Council to help with the kitchen costs, but obviously this kind of major work requires a few more dollars than that’.

Organisers say for assistance with larger items like car chassis etc, call Rhonda on 0477 687 816

‘Please do not leave any metal items outside the skip. When the skip is filled, we will replace it with another when required’.
