Knitting Nannas keep track of MPs over CSG

THOSE on the Clarence Valley opposed to coal seam gas mining can sleep easy knowing the Knitting Nannas are keeping the knot knit on CSG.

Knitting Nanna Leonie Blain said the group knitted in front of Page MP Kevin Hogan's office yesterday to learn his views on CSG. Ms Blain said Mr Hogan reiterated his stance that coal seam gas was inappropriate to the area and created health and infrastructure problems.

"Mr Hogan informed us he had been to Queensland and said he spoke to people who had health problems who lived near gas mines," Ms Blain said.

"We suggested he take his State Nationals colleagues up to Queensland because it might open their eyes a bit.

"We are concerned coal seam gas will start again when the government changes.

"That is why the Nannas need to keep their needles clacking away enthusiastically."

Ms Blain said the Nannas usually knitted out the front of Clarence MP Chris Gulaptis's office but they were enjoying the change of scenery.
