Charity floored by hall fee for fundraiser
No point having a fundraiser if all the money goes to hiring the hall. Glad council is taking back control.
Outrageous, given that the facility is a poorly designed white elephant with an unusable audio system. I believe the event company that manages the facility is paid somewhere in the order of over $200k a year.
This is totally disgusting. It is a community centre and should be made available to the community - not used as a money spinner. So many charities need to use this at some time but certainly can't afford it - their money goes to helping people in need. Come on council - get real and do something about this.

This council can still surprise me. Obviously they don't realise the outrageously expensive building belongs to US and it is for OUR community.
Someone's upped the ante. In years gone by non-profit groups using pubic halls paid a token amount and a refundable bond.
Door wedge needed for new hospital
I complained about that door mid last year direct to the hospital. Glad it took someone with common sense to help those that struggle with wheelchairs and wheelie walkers.
Good on you Wayne for bringing this problem to the hospital and public attention.
Wollongong renal unit doesn't have electric doors either. It requires someone to hold the door while another person pushes wheel chairs through it. I know this because my son has been on dialysis for 5 yrs now and he's the one holding the doors open for patient transport people while ambos push them through.
Another trip to the hardware store to keep the hospital running. First it was bolt cutters.
