On that thought the beach is one of our biggest selling points.
Clean the seaweed - you wouldn’t sell your car without a clean.
As for business closures, I have only two points.
Cost - someone please throw a boot up the arse of the property owners on Macrossan St. Surely getting less rent is better than no rent at all.
Diversify - in tough times you have to focus on selling what the few who are spending are buying.
Did you know if everyone in town spent $50 in a retail shop on Macrossan St next week, business owners would see a share of $125,000. It’s pretty simple for locals to help out.
Last of all, the Waterfront and Lagoon debates.
Stop arguing like children and get it built or politicians will lose interest and spend the money elsewhere.
As always , I love this town. a legal obligation to alleviate its suffering and a moral obligation to think about your actions.
A bird lives for flight and you severed a wing and broke its legs and drove away.
The wildlife of this area attracts people from the far corners of the globe. If the community wants a healthy local economy, you need to look after the assets. A SPECIAL thanks to all who volunteered and donated in-kind support to The Carnivale Club 2012.
I would like to thank all of you who went the extra mile to support The Carnivale Club for this year.
I think we have managed to make an impact and challenged the other more traditional Carnivale events by presenting new, exciting and innovative content.
We presented cabaret, sports comedy, environmental programs, local fashion and art, live music, wine tastings, exotic foods, stand-up comedy and more.
Each event challenged us with new hurdles, and finished with resounding successes, with sold out shows night after night, and presentation of massive events showcasing wonderful talent.
For me it is great to think Carnivale has a venue such as the historic Sugar Wharf, which can showcase the diverse set of talents we have in this small and energetic town.
Beyond the beautiful reef, unique rainforest and our great food we now have a venue designed to reflect our diverse culture and showcase the talent that survives within the broader limits of this vibrant community.
I look forward to working with you again, it was a true pleasure.
