THE Melville Bowls and Com­mu­nity Club held a Mel­bourne Cup lun­cheon.

There pres­i­dent Gary McCormic, pub­licly ob­served that “Yes, this is a so­cial com­mu­nity cen­tre that plays bowls”.

By far the most at­ten­dees at the lun­cheon were so­cial and com­mu­nity mem­bers, and not pen­nant bowlers. It would have been good for coun­cil­lors to hear that they are plan­ning to close down two im­por­tant so­cial com­mu­nity cen­tres.

The re­cent coun­cil elec­tions did send a mes­sage that peo­ple are not happy with the coun­cil.

In two years, at the next coun­cil elec­tions, there could be an­other mes­sage from the elec­tors.

What does it take for the coun­cil to wake up and re­alise that they are go­ing against the wishes of the elec­tors and the com­mu­nity? KARL KELERS Al­fred Cove
