Roe­bourne gath­ers

Pilbara News - - News - ■ Louise Alling­ham

A com­mu­nity bar­be­cue will be held ev­ery Sun­day this month to al­low Roe­bourne res­i­dents a say in what hap­pens in their town.

Res­i­dents are in­vited to An­dover Park from 6pm for a free sausage siz­zle and a chance to voice their con­cerns about the com­mu­nity.

Michael Nikakis, of the Roe­bourne Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion, said this year’s meet­ings would fo­cus on de­ci­sions re­gard­ing the Roe­bourne Court­house, which was closed af­ter be­ing dam­aged by cy­clone Chris­tine.

“A ma­jor thing, I be­lieve, peo­ple are very con­cerned about is the court­house and, vir­tu­ally, the de­ci­sion has been made not to re­open. I be­lieve we could change that, if we all get to­gether,” he said.

The meet­ings will also help the coun­cil de­cide on cel­e­bra­tions for Roe­bourne’s 150th an­niver­sary in Au­gust.
