Driv­ers rest in Gin Gin af­ter a long week­end

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

THE Easter long week­end had vol­un­teers on their feet at Gin Gin Driver Re­viver as hun­dreds took ad­van­tage of the free cof­fee and the op­por­tu­nity to take a break from driv­ing.

Holiday-mak­ers took to Queens­land roads last Fri­day morn­ing to cel­e­brate the Easter long week­end.

Easter came early this year and mo­torists took it slow and steady as police were out in force.

Gin Gin SES vol­un­teered time to the Driver Re­viver stop where more than 75 cups of cof­fee an hour were served.

SES lo­cal con­troller Kel­lie Bol­stad said it was great to see plenty of fam­i­lies stop­ping for a break.

“I know what it’s like trav­el­ling with a car load of chil­dren. Driver Re­vivers are handy,” she said.

“We en­cour­age ev­ery driver to stop for 20 min­utes at least, just enough time to have a stretch,” she said.
