Shed pri­or­i­ties

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

I FIND it in­cred­i­ble that the or­gan­is­ers of the Childers Men’s Shed are will­ing to ac­cept a short term 10-year lease, to the detri­ment of high school stu­dents. As a 75-year-old sup­porter of the men’s shed con­cept, I have se­ri­ous reser­va­tions, when the de­ci­sion to es­tab­lish one in Childers in­ter­feres with the ed­u­ca­tion of high school stu­dents. A well es­tab­lished, suc­cess­ful agri­cul­tural pro­gram is to be de­stroyed, in favour of a small group of el­derly men. Both the BRC. and the men’s shed or­gan­is­ers are at fault with the de­ci­sion to lo­cate the shed on land cur­rently used by school stu­dents. I have no doubt that in 10 years’ time, at the ter­mi­na­tion of the lease, the men’s shed will look­ing for a new home. In the name of com­mon sense, this short-sighted, ridicu­lous de­ci­sion has to be re­versed. Peter Bon­nell Redridge
