Send out a wel­come party

Mercury (Hobart) - - OPINION -

WE could be like Greenoch in Scot­land. We just vis­ited there on a cruise ship and the pen­sion­ers greeted us. They have to do a cer­tain amount of vol­un­tary com­mu­nity ser­vice to be el­i­gi­ble for their pen­sion. Good idea No 1. No 2 good idea was that the city made avail­able three buses and they trans­ported as many tourists from the ship as they could with a guide from the city to tell us some his­tory of the place. The tour went for two hours and all they asked for was a do­na­tion for the driver or the bus. Peo­ple were very will­ing to give be­cause the tour was very in­for­ma­tive and a joy. Come on Ho­bart, we could do this with the amount of ships vis­it­ing?
