Service swept under the rug for an oyster festival
The Peninsula News (edition 451) reported that Remembrance Day collided with the Ettalong Beach Oyster Festival.
How could this have happened on the World War 1 100th Anniversary?
Is the Oyster Festival nationally celebrated?
I am not at all pleased with the recognition of both events sharing the same level of significance and have reported the issue to Central Coast Council and Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks.
Staff from both offices have advised me that the matter was "sorted", when I was expecting a reply in support of Remembrance Day.
One hundred years of service have been swept under the rug for an oyster festival.
It may sit well with the Council.
It may be fine with the Member for Robertson.
But it definitely does not sit well with a Veteran.
The Council and Ms Wicks need to have a serious discussion to realise their priorities well in advance of the Memorial Service on November 11, and act accordingly.
This matter is still very active.
Voice your opinion, please.
