ONE YEAR AGO...

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

THIS time last year, Whit­sun­day lo­cal Char­lie Bell had his dream of meet­ing the To­day Show team come true.

Char­lie, who was born with a rare syn­drome, met the crew when they broad­cast live from Air­lie Beach for their We Love Aus­tralia tour.

The lo­ca­tion of the Air­lie Beach mar­kets was a pop­u­lar talk­ing point when Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil re­leased a pro­posal to solve is­sues raised by stall­hold­ers, in­clud­ing an un­pleas­ant smell from nearby toi­lets and il­le­gal camp­ing.

Cur­rent Fed­eral Mem­ber for Daw­son, Ge­orge Chris­tensen awoke to find his cam­paign signs had been de­faced – quite lit­er­ally.

And the com­mu­nity paid trib­ute to former Whit­sun­day lo­cal, Bil­lie Kin­der, who was trag­i­cally killed in a horse rid­ing ac­ci­dent.
