Wanneroo Times - - Opin­ion -

I KNOW Mer­riwa (and sur­rounds) has a poor rep­u­ta­tion, but I re­ally quite like my sub­urb.

More and more I see chil­dren play­ing out­side to­gether, dogs frol­ick­ing on their daily walks, houses be­ing im­proved and peo­ple tend­ing their gar­dens.

There's a 'suc­cu­lent patch' I drive past most morn­ings that al­ways makes me smile.

It doesn't mat­ter if it's the lo­cal shop, chemist or bot­tle-o, the cus­tomer ser­vice is ex­cep­tional; we know our man­ners. My par­ents so­cialise with neigh­bours in their street and I know all of mine.

Just putting it out there for all the crit­ics. Mer­riwa is bloody awe­some for a 'less de­sir­able' sub­urb.

It's full of good peo­ple hav­ing a de­cent crack at cre­at­ing a unique com­mu­nity.

Thanks my Mer­riwa peeps. SAN­DRA DOWN, Mer­riwa.
