EDITOR’S DESK NIKKI TODD

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS OPINION -

IT’S been a big year so far for the Tweed, from the an­nounce­ment of a new $530 mil­lion hospi­tal, to the open­ing of our new po­lice head­quar­ters at Tweed Heads. And now, with the lat­est de­tails emerg­ing of the State Gov­ern­ment’s $100 mil­lion in­vest­ment into ed­u­ca­tion in the shire, our school-aged chil­dren stand to ben­e­fit too. For so long, the Tweed has been left be­hind by de­ci­sion-mak­ers in Syd­ney, it is good they are fi­nally wak­ing up to the pop­u­la­tion surge that is tak­ing place up here. Now, we just need to make sure our po­lice, hos­pi­tals and schools are ad­e­quately staffed to de­liver th­ese vi­tal ser­vices. Fi­nally, I’d like to pay trib­ute to de­part­ing Des­ti­na­tion Tweed head Bill Tatchell, who has worked tire­lessly to pro­mote the Tweed re­gion as a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for tourists.
