In The Courier this week
Real estate agent Sally Ness from Strathalbyn was roped into the Celebrity Udder Tug at the Meadows Country Fair on Sunday simply by being in the right place at the wrong time … or the wrong place at the right time. Either way she had no time to get nervous before she found herself squatting at the back end of a very wet dairy cow with a bucket in hand and three minutes to publicly humiliate herself. In the end Sally had a blast … and enough milk for a cup of tea – just!
Parking issue on new level
The Mt Barker Council is considering building a multi-deck car park near Gawler Street to alleviate parking congestion in the growing town.
Chief executive Andrew Stuart said the council was exploring the idea of building a car park at the southern end of Stephen Street, behind the town hall.
The council believes a multi-deck car park would resolve parking problems which have worsened in recent years because of the town’s rising population.
Mr Stuart said the need for more parking continued to amplify and that parking spaces in the town’s CBD were the key to its functionality.
