NATIONAL servicemen in the Nashos WA Group will hold their Christmas reunion on December 6 in the Gosnells Hotel at midday on that Saturday.
Any former Nashos and their partners are welcome to mix in and join the group.
It formed as only five members in 2008 and now has a growing membership. Any former Nashos wishing to contact the group can call 9497 9879 or 0402 576 086 or email email@example.com
We are also saving our National Service history in platoon or section photos. To view the website of photos that the group has managed to save visit www.wanashos.wikidot.com/ BOB McGUIRE, Armadale. the Liberal MP for Belmont, Glenys Godfrey, asked the Housing Minister Bill Marmion to put a Homeswest property in Cloverdale on the market in an attempt to address anti-social behaviour, by reducing public housing concentrations in the area.
Why does Ms Godfrey believe that the disruptive behaviour that previously came from that property warrants it being sold?
Is it really concern for people on the waiting list for public housing, or is she suggesting that people who live in public housing are the problem when it comes to anti-social behaviour?
Most thinking people realise that public housing tenants don’t have a mortgage on bad behaviour.
Ms Godfrey believes that by selling the Cloverdale property the money could be used to buy new housing stock in an area with a lower state housing presence.
Ms Godfrey, the sale of one property in Cloverdale would be a Band-Aid on a huge weeping sore – something of a national disgrace.
In a country as wealthy as Australia, there are about 225,000 people waiting for public housing and here in Western Australia there are something like 25,000 applications on the public housing waiting list.
If Ms Godfrey is so concerned about the length of public housing waiting lists, why doesn’t her Government start seriously investing in public housing that is accessible, affordable, secure, comfortable and in locations that provide good access to employment, healthcare, public transport, schools and other social facilities?
Come on Ms Godfrey, please get serious and leave 408 Daly Street alone – some family needs a home in Cloverdale. KEVIN WATKINS, Rivervale.
