‘Re­name Park­lands’

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

THE Chin­chilla Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety con­ducted its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing last Satur­day, July 8, and the fol­low­ing ex­ec­u­tives were all re-elected.

The pres­i­dent is Lind­say Mars­den, vice-pres­i­dent is Ray Wal­ters, sec­re­tary is Yvonne Wol­ski, trea­surer is Daphne Tay­lor and the pa­tron is Moreen McIn­tyre.

Our monthly gen­eral meet­ing fol­lowed and much dis­cus­sion took place about the Western Downs Re­gional Coun­cil’s pro­posal to de­velop the old rail­way re­serve into park­land.

The mem­bers unan­i­mously en­dorsed a mo­tion sup­port­ing the sug­ges­tion that the new area be called Chin­chilla Pioneer Park (or Park­lands).

By be­ing so named, the area would fea­ture a wall where present-day de­scen­dants of the pi­o­neers of Chin­chilla Shire could record the names of our orig­i­nal pi­o­neers.

Our mem­bers are look­ing forward to the ex­pected com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion meet­ings which we be­lieve are im­mi­nent.

Next week we will bring you de­tails of our Chin­chilla Gar­den Com­pe­ti­tion, weather per­mit­ting.
