Thumbs Up Thumbs Down for this week

Boo the borders, thanks for the businesses

WE asked you to give us your likes and dislikes from this week, and plenty of you responded. Here’s what you gave your thumbs up/ thumbs down to this week:

James Patterson

Thumbs up to the Council lawnmower crews mowing the miles of the highways in preparation for summer. A huge job, done well. And done exceptionally well compared to other nearby councils. Great work guys.

Wayne Mclennan

A big thumbs up to our amazing Police officers in Grafton that continue to keep us safe in these trying times.

Corrina Brown

Thumbs down to the Govt for not giving the base hospital funding to have a PET scan and radiation treatment in Grafton. Oncology patients still have to travel to Lismore to have them. Last thing they want to do is travel while receiving treatment.

Christine Bird

Thumbs up to the easy flow of traffic in our town now, with both bridges.

Patricia MacFarlane

Thumbs down to the QLD premier for not including the Clarence Valley into her bubble. Ridiculous that Glen Innes is further south and it is in the bubble. Can’t figure that one out.

Susan Jackson

Thumbs up to Gillwinga Public School Goori dance group with Dean Loadsman

Last week our senior Goori group put on another whole school performance for everyone to enjoy. Students got dressed up in dance costumes, painted up, had a smoking ceremony and performed five great dances.

Thumbs down to CVC for the weeds in the pavement, deep leaf litter in the gutters and trapped along the low brick walls in prince street (from Fitzroy street down towards the river).

Not everything needs to be done with machinery and traffic control, your employees could use brooms!
