In reply to a recent letter to the Chronicle re spraying of crops close to houses, join us at the northern end of Tawari Street today, as the onion crop is collected. After months of (dangerous to residents) spraying several times a week, the area is now getting covered in the unhealthy dust. As it lingers in the air over a widespread area, once the machinery has passed by. This argument will no doubt continue as it has for over twenty years. However the council I am sure could interject with a by law that does not permit this practice in such close proximity to residential dwellings. most importantly, the people who gave up their time to come along and work hard in the kitchen, serve the food, and entertain our guests and do what was required of them to ensure that this celebration of Christmas was such a success.
A huge thank you and very happy new year.
With grateful thanks.
