ABAN­DONED TROL­LEYS

I gig­gle to my­self each time I drive though Childers; it’s be­com­ing a land­mark for trav­ellers.

The car­a­van park ac­com­mo­dates semi-per­ma­nent res­i­dents, hol­i­day­mak­ers, overnighters and back­pack­ers.

Rod Worth, the lease­holder of the car­a­van park was ap­proached for a com­ment and chose not to com­ment in re­gards to the trol­leys. Mark Ray­mond, the Wool­worths store man­ager said, in an ideal world cus­tomers would leave the trol­leys in the car park, but they don’t.

“I rely on a staff mem­ber with a util­ity to pick up all the stray trol­leys at least once a week,” he said.

Wool­worths Childers doesn’t have the ser­vices of trol­ley col­lec­tors, it re­lies on its ser­vice staff to col­lect them from around the car parks and to use pri­vately owned ve­hi­cles to col­lect trol­leys from around town.

Jean Cham­bers, a self-con­fessed grey no­mad said “I gig­gle to my­self each time I drive though Childers; it’s be­com­ing a land­mark for trav­ellers.

“It must be an­noy­ing for the car­a­van park and Woolies,” she said.

Mrs Cham­bers was sur­prised to find out Wool­worths doesn’t have a trol­ley ser­vice.

“It may be time to hire more staff or a trol­ley ser­vice,” she said. SOME res­i­dents in Childers are up­set at the num­ber of aban­doned su­per­mar­ket trol­leys on the north side of town.

Peo­ple who live in walk­ing dis­tance from Wool­worths some­times use the trol­leys as a ve­hi­cle to get gro­ceries home.

The trol­leys get lined up ready for col­lec­tion un­der the Sugar Bowl car­a­van park sign.
