Shed misses point

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

I WAS to­tally ap­palled to hear of the Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil’s de­ci­sion to al­low the Men’s Shed to be erected on land which is oc­cu­pied by the Isis Dis­trict High Schools’ agri­cul­tural pro­gram which sup­ports (and has sup­ported) hun­dreds of chil­dren since its in­tro­duc­tion. I am well and truly over the hill and was look­ing for­ward to be­com­ing a mem­ber of this group, but I can­not un­der­stand how not one of our “elected” mem­bers or any of the Men’s Shed com­mit­tee have spo­ken out about the lo­ca­tion of the shed. I un­der­stand they (the com­mit­tee) have re­fused sev­eral lo­ca­tions sug­gested by the coun­cil. A non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion known Aus­tralia-wide be­comes fussy on where their shed goes? For the good of the school­child­ren and their par­ents, I call on the pres­i­dent and com­mit­tee mem­bers to halt con­struc­tion on this land.
