We must tackle our home­less­ness prob­lem

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/PEOPLE -

I CAN only praise and give my many thanks to your ded­i­cated jour­nal­ism and Trin­ity Lonel of Path­ways for bring­ing this home­less prob­lem to the fore and be known.

I also must give my per­sonal thanks to Michele Pad­bury of Mans­field Wel­fare Group and St Vin­nies Conference for their tire­less work aid­ing, sup­port­ing and un­der­stand­ing this grow­ing prob­lem and its many rea­sons as to why.

But so much more needs to be ad­dressed head on.

I will be at­tend­ing the next coun­cil meet­ing on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 17, not to con­vey my plight or story, but to be hope­fully heard and to show how in ex­plain­ing Legacy’s role in the com­mu­nity. Bob Beng­hamy, pres­i­dent Alexan­dra, Yea, Mans­field Legacy Group

Each week the Courier will en­deavor to pub­lish a photo taken by the com­mu­nity or one of its staff.

If you have a good or out­stand­ing pho­to­graph and would like it pub­lished send with details of where, when and pho­tog­ra­pher’s name to edit.mcourier@ ne­me­dia.com.au and cap­tioned “Through My Lens”. TRAN­QUIL­LITY: This photo of Goughs Bay Boat Club on sun­set was taken by 13 year old James Reid of Mans­field.
