Asst coach role omitted

LETTER

I was very disappointed in Thursday night’s paper to see the wonderful article on our local surf lifesavers, Taylor, Fyall and Corrin. You failed to mention our other local Jack Gavin who was the assistant coach of the New Zealand team. Such a wonderful achievement and I felt very sad that The Gisborne Herald had omitted his achievements, as he was and is an outstanding Gisborne athlete who is indeed worthy of mention.

    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?
