Newslink - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Gore’s re­tail­ers and coun­cil should be ap­plauded for be­ing one of the first in the coun­try to make a de­ci­sion about al­low­ing shop­ping on Easter Sun­day.

It was quite sim­ple - the town’s shops are shut any­way, so why do any­thing dif­fer­ent?

But gee we need to get South­land An­niver­sary Day sorted.

If you were in town on Tues­day you might have found life a bit frus­trat­ing.

Some busi­nesses were open and some were closed be­cause some, like our of­fice, ob­serve the hol­i­day back in Jan­uary - the day it used to be.

A search on­line re­veals that the day was changed to April back in 2011 - so why can’t we get it to­gether and all have the same day off?

South­land’s three may­ors de­cided to change the day so ev­ery­one could have an ex­tra long Easter - so shouldn’t we all fol­low suit? Well done to ev­ery­one who dragged them­selves off to work on Tues­day.
