Public Meeting – Yarra Junction

Many thanks to all people involved in organizing the public meeting. Thank you Yarra Junction Primary School for your hospitality. A big thank you for Daniel Young, Cindy McLeish and Jim Child for attending and speaking on our meeting, we really appreciate you taking the time and energy to listen to us, and last but not least a big thank you to the local community who turned up in great numbers.

People are all convinced that the wrong decisions have been made regarding total re-vegetating Haining Farm. A decision made by voters outside the Yarra Ranges shire and totally ignoring the wishes of the local community. The politicians invited are listening.
