Care for your area

2018-06-26 06:00

As a resident of ward 53, Maitland I would like to remind my fellow residents, and other readers, that we all work very hard to earn our money. Money certainly does not come easy.

We pay a substantial chunk of it every month towards our housing bonds and rentals.

Perhaps we need to value a little more the sacrifice we make for the roof over our heads. If we do, perhaps it would be reflected in the civic pride we have for the environments in which we live.

I would like to see residents pull together to improve our living environments. Its not always a matter of cost but elbow grease, organisation and a change of mindset.
