THE VOICE COLUMN
The pandemic is still here but with caution we can survive and it just shows when put in a tight spot we can do it.
I come from Middlemarch and at the moment a few things are happening here.
First is the postponement of the train. I say postponement, with due diligence it will be back because this is one of the best train trips in the world.
So all I say is do not be too hasty to close the line and the trains, look for alternatives or it could end up like the tram cars.
Project Steam is a group of passionate people fixing trains and carriages in Middlemarch to run on the line – not this year, but soon.
Then there is a Heritage Park for the Strath Taieri Valley, which combines a number of projects.
Middlemarch is a good wee community but a few more families could give it a bit more life to help the school, shops cafes, garages and workshops.
I’m struggling to make my word count so I’ll end with a wee ditty.
Let’s make Dunedin beautiful
Let’s make Dunedin right
Let make people want to come here
Let’s get Dunedin growing
Let’s do this together.
