LET­TER OF THE WEEK

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - YOUR SAY -

ALTHOUGH I know that progress has to hap­pen and things need to change, hav­ing grown up in the St Marys area I do feel a lit­tle pang of dis­ap­point­ment (“Trans­for­ma­tion on the draw­ing ng board”, Mt Druitt-St Marys

Stan­dard, Septem­ber 7). I al­ways thought Queen St had that lit­tle bit of a coun­try town main street feel.

I know it has de­te­ri­o­rated – vir­tu­ally de­serted – and that times mes and so­ci­ety have changed.

But I can re­mem­ber how bustling it once was, es­pe­cially around Christ­mas time. I am just be­ing nos­tal­gic I know but, yeah, even though there are much-needed changes to be made, it would be nice to see it re­tain some of its coun­try-town feel.

St Marys lost its soul decades ago. Make it like ev­ery­where elsee and com­pletely lose the vil­lagevil at­mos­phere it used to have.have The devel­op­ers al­ways have their way.wa If Pen­rith City Coun­cil was so con­cerned about it, they wouldn’t have let it de­te­ri­o­rate.
