Water way to win big

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

JODIE Heise of Port Dou­glas has picked up a free wash­ing ma­chine sim­ply by hav­ing a free water ser­vice con­ducted by Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil.

Mrs Heise’s name was drawn from more than 900 res­i­dents who had reg­is­tered with the Water Smart Home Ser­vice con­ducted by coun­cil over the past three months to push the sus­tain­able water mes­sage.

Mrs Heise said it was the first thing she had won from en­ter­ing a com­pe­ti­tion.

The win­ner of the 1500-litre Ul­tra-slim water tank in the same com­pe­ti­tion was Janette Walker, also of Port Dou­glas.

“We couldn’t be­lieve our luck as this is a very timely prize be­cause we were think­ing about go­ing to buy a tank for the back yard to use for wa­ter­ing the gar­den,” she said.

“I was very im­pressed with their ser­vice in do­ing a com­plete check of all of our water pipes in our home and they left us with a de­tailed re­port of their in­spec­tion - it was very im­pres­sive.”
