Mt Larcom community needs more support

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.

Julie Beel, Mt Larcom cafe owner:

MT LARCOM has a little voice, but it needs to be heard. I totally agree with all these people at the meeting saying we need the support. 

But then, I opened one night a week for pizza night, I did that just before Christmas.

The first two Friday nights were awesome and then it just died. I didn't have the support behind me.

Even saying we don't get heard, you've got to continue with the actions to follow the voice.

I took a photo of Erin, my daughter, doing her drawing.

I think there were a lot of cards drawn by the kids saying they want McDonald's.

But then I wouldn't know how the cafe would survive.

Mt Larcom, Raglan and Ambrose - we've got these young children that are growing up here, but if it stays like this these towns won't exist.
