Buy local message important

LETTER

Congratulations on the insert in last Tuesday’s Herald. Always nice to see the folk in local businesses, who are beavering away. The message on buying local is important.

I particularly liked the picture inside the front cover of our iconic town clock. This also showed the equally iconic Endeavour model and I feel it is timely to seek an update on the progress, if any, towards the restoration of these models to our local streetscape.

Footnote response from GDC contracts and assets manager Garrett Blair:

The council has identified budget as part of the Long-Term Plan to support the reinstatement of the Endeavour replicas. We are waiting on feedback from key parties as to what is required to carry on the process.
