Gutter crossing hazard

The condition of some gutter crossings in Sutherland Shire are a hazard for disabled people driving electric scooters. 

Some gutter crossings are absolutely diabolical like the crossings on the corner of Taren Point Road and Parraweena Road.

Sutherland Shire Council should conduct a survey of shire roads  now to identify what gutter crossings are hazardous to disabled residents and start making urgent repairs before they end up with a fatality on their hands.

‘House full’ sign for Joan

Re the article ‘‘Joan Quinn a most remarkable woman’’ (Leader, October 3).

Our family must place on record a big vote of thanks for the wonderful article in the Leader as it related to our saint, Joan Quinn, long time resident of Como.

There was a house full sign at the mass for Joan at St Patrick’s Catholic Church and, just as we anticipated, there was an absolute house full, over crowed in fact, at the subsequent wake.

Our immediate, and extended families, cannot thank the Leader enough for a moving moment in the life of our Joan.

Indeed, ‘‘Joan was a remarkable women’’

Thank you Menai F45 Gym

I attend a gym in Menai which has been operating for less than a year. 

I recently was diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis. 

The gym and the owner Joel Hickey have helped me along the way and I am so thankful for this. 

Menai F45 have a great community and I am so lucky to have had them help me with my journey to getting well and learning to live with multiple sclerosis. 

Thank you and I look forward to hopefully talking to you soon.

Set sail for The Everest

The Opera House is an icon, but so to is the Royal Randwick. The richest horse race in the world of sport worth $13 million surely needs world coverage. 

The Everest to be run next Saturday could end up being a competitor to the Melbourne Cup. 

Let Sydney give its best shot and show off the Opera House at the same time.
