Big ap­petite for life in Mid­land

Hills Gazette - - NEWS -

ASK Mid­land co­me­dian Cameron McLaren what he loves about his sub­urb and it’s all the fast food joints you can drive through and the com­mu­nity spirit.

“There's a pride in Mid­land that you don't find in other places,” he said.

“I'm not sure why, but there is this in­stant bond when you meet some­one else from 6056 out in the real world; like, ‘hey yeah, I shop at Mid­land Gate too’.”

The Swan View Se­nior High school grad­u­ate said he had forged great mem­o­ries grow­ing up in the area.

“Re­mem­ber when our Mac­cas had a plane? Fancy,” he said.

“Ap­ple­cross is sup­pos- edly a rich area but their Mac­cas didn't have an air­port.

“Mid­land just had ev­ery­thing you'd need.

“As a kid I’d spend week­ends at Swan Aquatic, the old Ace cin­e­mas, the classy Jimmy Deans or the Traino.”

McLaren said while Mid­land was meta­mor­phos­ing, it still re­tained its in­fa­mous charm.

“Mid­land has ev­ery­thing you need and it's only grow­ing,” he said.

“New hos­pi­tal, new med­i­cal school and two Hun­gry Jacks.

“Why would you wanna be any­where else?
