It’s 9.15am and the kids are late again and mum and dad are working hard to make ends meet. An old man reads the Herald e-paper, the forum posts describe the daily drive commute and those financial struggles. One must think what is going on! To all watching or involved in the Highfields Master Plan think of the red, white and blue yes our Australia. Make a judgement, not for now or just us, but for our future generations. Put your own needs aside and think of those behind us or those who are just a twinkle in one’s eye. We need to get the plan right. So think hard and think twice but think for those things required we need to leave behind! Open space, roads and corridors are equally important and so are future jobs and growth. Let’s make the opportunities the best here in the “perhaps” north of the region in your Highfields City 2038 - Murray Choat, Highfield Ridge. All positions will be declared vacant and everyone is welcome to attend. The group is looking forward to seeing some new volunteers to ensure the Gowrie community continues to have a strong voice.
