Pro­tect our kids

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

Booze and Kids are a bad mix, what are they think­ing, al­low­ing AN­OTHER liquor store near where so many of our chil­dren are; the pools, youth park and Pu­nanga.

We al­ready have too many liquor shops in Toko­roa and fam­i­lies here are al­ready strug­gling fi­nan­cially; an­other liquor shop is not the way to go!

Is this OK for how the rest of New Zealand see’s the South Waikato/ Toko­roa?

We need to teach our chil­dren to drink in mod­er­a­tion, and to have an­other liquor store in Toko­roa is not the an­swer we need to look for! SWDC surely you guys should be against an­other liquor shop in town, we have to many al­ready! Not smil­ing at all.

Come and see what we live with any night of the week, but es­pe­cially week­ends with drink­ing and the ex­tra noise and van­dal­ism, and maybe you’ll un­der­stand why we are so against an­other liquor store. Isn’t SWDC pro­mot­ing a safer com­mu­nity? Then more ac­cess to liquor is not the way to go, es­pe­cially af­ter the po­lice report in this week’s SWN with al­co­hol and al­co­hol re­lated in­ci­dents high. R Drower Toko­roa
