LETTERS Missing info
I RECEIVED a glossy colour copy of the
from the council in the post today.
It had many short stories and 30 pictures – including seven pictures of the mayor and one of Cr Meiklejohn.
Just one picture looked to be taken in Stanthorpe. Is this a good use of council resources? Or is it just unnecessary PR?
There was not a mention of the de-amalgamation issue and no mention of Emu Swamp Dam.
For the SDRC’s information, these are the two issues of interest to Stanthorpe.
Spare a thought
AS YOU settle in to enjoy your Christmas gatherings with friends and family this week, spare a thought for the forgotten people in your neighbourhood.
You see them around but probably don’t pay them much attention – they’re the women, men and children of Queensland experiencing homelessness. It’s estimated that more than 21,000 Queenslanders experience homelessness on any given night. Sitting around the Christmas tree joyfully opening presents is an unlikely dream. According to Anglicare’s Carol Birrell, who has been working with homeless women and children in Brisbane for the past 11 years, many of us mistakenly think people experiencing homelessness bring it upon themselves.
Anglicare Southern Queensland, a not-for-profit charity that has supported vulnerable Queenslanders for 140 years, provides a range of specialist homelessness services.
Anglicare’s dedicated team supports hundreds of vulnerable people with thousands of hours of support every year, but it needs to do more.
You can help support their work with a tax-deductible charitable donation this Christmas.
