Mt Larcom needs more facilities for kids
RESIDENTS across the region have been contributing ideas to the future vision for Gladstone.
Visioning workshops have already been held at Mt Larcom, Agnes Water, Boyne Island, Calliope and the Boyne Valley this week as part of the community-led Vision 2035.
The final event, open to everyone, is being held at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre from 8.30am-1pm on Saturday.
Some of you put pen to paper and shared your thoughts and ideas on your vision.
Stacey Plahn, Mt Larcom:
AS A young mum to get to the pool you have to cross the highway, so a safe crossing would be good.
There's not much for my kids out here, I have to go into town to do swimming lessons.
They said they tried to bring swimming lessons, but no one was interested. Nothing was said so I didn't even know.
The only thing out here is a little music and arts and craft session at the library, that's the only thing for young kids out here.
Gladstone and Rocky have it all and out here we have nothing.
I'd love to be living in a community where there's people that will go out and do things with everyone.
There's a lot of young mums out here that I don't know because there's nowhere to go where we can all meet each other in the area.
It would be nice to have something out here for kids in the future.
Kids are getting in trouble because there's nothing to do. I've been here for nearly five years. I do like it; it's really good.
My partner was born and raised in Mt Larcom. It's peaceful and quiet.
