Calling all tradies to lend their skills for the shire
MAYORAL candidate James Dormer has a novel idea for construction of playgrounds, community gardens and other small projects in the shire.
He wants to tap the capacities of local tradespeople to volunteer their time to complete projects funded by the shire. ‘‘We could also look at fundraising for certain projects and potentially work in conjunction with many of our wonderful local organisations,’’ Mr Dormer said. ‘‘The new playground in Mossman has been a huge hit, and we feel there are other areas within the Shire that would benefit greatly from these types of facilities.
‘‘ I have approached many local tradespeople and so far everyone was extremely interested in getting on board and I feel the concept would help bring our un-united community back together. ‘‘I think the concept has merit and would be very interested in hearing from others interested in joining us.’’
