Muddy think­ing

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

Through your news paper, I would like to thank and con­grat­u­late the SWDC on be­half of all the camper van, house truck, and car­a­van users – New Zealan­ders and over­seas tourists for drain­ing the swamp area along­side the Ara­puni swing bridge en­trance track so that now all the wa­ter flows onto the des­ig­nated car­a­van park­ing area at the rear of the bowl­ing club which many of us use for sev­eral months of the year.

It’s re­ally great for us now, as in the past we used to get out of our vans in the morn­ing and cover the Waikato walk­ing track for our ex­er­cise.

Now we don’t have to do that any more. We get enough ex­er­cise push­ing our ve­hi­cles out of the soft mud that the Coun­cil (by its no-brainer) has turned much of the park­ing area into. Fel­low House Trucker. Jean Glendin­ning

SWDC re­sponded: Nei­ther coun­cil nor our contractors have drained the area men­tioned.
