Locked in over the Easter long week­end

Isis Town and Country - - News -

FAM­I­LIES made the most of the Easter long week­end, with jet skiers flock­ing to Par­adise Dam to take ad­van­tage of the per­fect con­di­tions.

But for one fam­ily the fun and laugh­ter turned to frus­tra­tion as the day campers were locked in be­hind a pad­locked gate.

The road lead­ing through the prop­erty had fallen vic­tim to nu­mer­ous floods, leav­ing the trail un­safe.

The campers were given per­mis­sion to ac­cess the prop­erty and given a key to un­lock the gate.

As the Smith fam­ily and friends ap­proached the gate, a re­place­ment pad­lock had been used and a no­tice at­tached say­ing track was closed un­til fur­ther no­tice.

Cinda and Alex Smith have two young chil­dren and were up­set they had been locked in.

“What if some­thing hap­pened? I tried to con­tact the per­son on the no­tice, no an­swer and the re­cep­tion was closed,” Mrs Smith said.

“No one checked the track or the grounds be­fore lock­ing the gate.”
