WHAT YOU SAID

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

WE ASKED READ­ERS IF THEY THOUGHT THE PRO­POSED MIL­LION-DOL­LAR PLAY­GROUND FOR DAW­SON MALL WAS A GOOD IDEA

We need out­door mar­kets in Mt Druitt. The mall would be per­fect for it, be­tween the Asian gro­cer and the sec­ond­hand store, but not on the walk­ways, that should be clear for walk­ers.

NATE NEL­SON I worked as a guard at that West­field. The Thurs­day night youth ac­tiv­i­ties were good in the­ory, but what it did was bring teenage gangs to­gether to join as one and gave them more strength.

TREV SMITH What a waste of money! Will cost more to pa­trol it, clean it and en­sure it is safe. Who would let their kids play there?

DEI­DRE BUL­LIMORE We need lots of po­lice on the beat day and night be­fore we think about fix­ing the place up. What’s the use of a play­ground if its cov­ered with some junkie’s urine?

MARIE MURA It may at­tract the right type of peo­ple and make it less dif­fi­cult for junkies do­ing their deals. Give kids some­thing more to do than just tag stuff.
