Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - OPINION -

Hav­ing lived in Dou­glas Shire for a good 24 years the con­cept of al­ter­na­tive liv­ing at Craiglie is a no- brainer. How­ever I do take um­brage at the words “re­tire­ment com­mu­nity”. As a techno-savvy “ma­ture per­son” with one foot in the grave and another on a ba­nana peel I would pre­fer the ter­mi­nal­ogy for such an es­tab­lish­ment to be “a life­style op­tion”. Last time I looked I think I was still breath­ing. SO it’s a BIG YEAH for the de­vel­op­ment from me.

On another note, with all the doom and gloom in the world, you have to take time out to recog­nise out­stand­ing com­mu­nity ser­vice and none are bet­ter than the two ladies at Bendigo Bank in Port, Carolyn and Nicky. Bou­quets Girls.
