GREAT NEWS for long suffering Bromley

residents on page 1 today: The tide is finally

turning in the long running war against

the midges.

And Janet Profit can take a lot of the

credit for it.

Janet, who lives in Shortland St, has battled the city council

for years over the midges, which gather at the oxidation ponds -

and then cause havoc for residents nearby.

She has featured regularly in the Pegasus Post over the issue,

which in my humble view has kept the pressure on the city

council to come up with remedies.

To their credit the city council has. The $300,000 which goes

into fighting midges each year seems to be paying off.

A good result all round.
