NIGHT MARKET IN THE MALL
The Shepparton Maude Street Mall would be a great success if the council would cover the central area (at the junction of Maude Street, Fraser Street and Stewart Street) with an attractive high or domed roof. It also needs to place many seats and picnic tables in that area so there could be regular weekly concerts and/or choral concerts on the stage with the protection people need from the sun.
The concerts could come from surrounding schools etc to become an enjoyable lunchtime attraction.
With further adequate lighting, all the mall area could become a famous night market with music and police presence. It would be great for Christmas markets and the Shepparton Arts Festival and Spring Blossom Festival.
Regarding the recent senseless held on August 9, I believe in father Christmas, I believe in the tooth fairy, I believe that the world is flat and I also believe that everything you put up onto the internet is 100 percent safe and no one can get at it!
On the form you have to fill in your name, address, age and your income! How long is it before many high earners are hit by this Ransome ware?
How naive can these politicians get? The site has already been hacked.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
In response to the letter in The Adviser on August 3 ‘Businesses in the Maude Street Mall,’ Dennis Oyston has a valid point. Food! It’s everywhere and people are embracing it and all of the varieties on offer. When I walk from LaTrobe Street through Melbourne Central, then through Emporium to the Bourke Street Mall, I bypass a myriad of eateries, a mixture of specialist cafes along with food halls and they are buzzing. People take their time ambling through these walkways while they duck and weave in and out of retail outlets enhancing business. Buskers in the mall add atmosphere and the GPO building on the corner has a vast range of eateries all alongside each other and all well patronised. Food for thought here perhaps?
