Resilience and optimism keep the main street dream alive

Resilience and optimism keep the main street dream alive

It’s remarkable how much interest there is in Campbelltown’s main street and its future. Anything at all that mentions Queen Street hits a chord with a lot of people. It always lights up the comments section of the Voice in Macarthur as well as our social media sites. Some of them are from current business owners but that makes the reaction even better.

Welcome to the age of infinite irritations

Other than your winter electricity bill what else would you like to see the back off? We could probably list 50 things that give us the heebie-jeebies. Which would make us a world class whinger or simply a savvy modern consumer, depending on your point of view. The thing isRead more »

Really love what we do, and that’s no bull

Maybe it’s the stories and functions we’ve covered so far in March, but we’ve heard a lot about steering the young people of Macarthur towards trades and away from university degrees. When you think about it there’s a persuasive argument behind it, a certain logic in overturning this idea thatRead more »
