IGA car park
I was disgusted to see all the trees cut down to just ‘‘stumps’’ at the IGA car park. I’m of the opinion that shady trees are essential, be they any size, for the public and the birds which used to take cover in these trees for shelter from the heat. Whilst on the subject of IGA car park how about replacing the white slippy pavers with rough surfaced flooring that is not so dangerous?
IGA manager Denzil Bignoux replies: The trees were cut in the interest of customer safety. A child of around six was nearly run over by a car speeding in my car park. Unfortunately I did not get the rego for the police, but did witness the incident. I requested the landlord to take action as the trees did not provide shade and were always full of green ants. I believe we have done the right thing. I cannot control the hoons or inconsiderate customers speeding but now the pedestrians can be clearly seen. I fully agree with customers we need some shaded parking and covered parking for rainy season. The front veranda was etched at the cost of $6800 in August and is done each year.
