First Light Fibres coverage lacking

LETTER

I was most disappointed to see the First Light Fibres coverage in The Gisborne Herald was largely relegated to the black and white pages.

This was a major conference for Gisborne with a large number of exhibitors and delegates travelling long distances from out of town to share their spinning and weaving skills with Gisbornites.

I’m sure if it had been a sports conference there would have been colour photos and wall-to-wall coverage in the back pages.

There’s more to life than sport.

    Do you support the call for a feasibility study into developing an "inland port" and sending the district's export logs to Napier Port by rail, to get log trucks out of the city and to repurpose the port and harbour area?
