06 NEWS TUESDAY MARCH 28 2017 CAVE01Z01MA - V1 Decision on lane deferred THE difference between closing a laneway and locking a gate across the entrance caused considerable debate at the Alice Springs Town Council Technical Services Committee last week. Two Fogarty St businesses asked to close or gate the laneway between their properties to cut down on vandalism and graffiti. Project/administration officer Cindy Savage told the meeting the laneway was designed as a stormwater overflow to the drain running behind the properties. It could not be closed and used by the businesses. Alex Fior, the owner of one of the blocks, said it was never an intention to expand the propertys size but to prevent vandals gaining access. Its really not changing the lane from anything more than what it is designed for, he said. I dont see any problems with putting a set of gates at either end to stop property access and damage to businesses during the night. The land will still belong to the council at the end of the day; they are not out of pocket with paying for the gates. The cost of the gate would be paid by the businesses. Councillor Eli Melky said he would like a report on the legal implications of the matter. A decision was deferred. Steve Menzies Camp Quality puppet show puppeteers Shannon Rush and Kimberley Fox with Bradshaw Primary School students Blake ClementStrawbridge, Ryan Gardner, Muriwai Ford and Amelia Mitchell. Picture: CHRISTINE ANSORGE CAMP Quality puppet show is touring the Northern Territory for the first time in two years starting in Alice Springs before heading up to schools in Darwin and rural areas. Its Primary School Education Program teaches pupils about how to be supportive and understanding of children diagnosed with cancer and children who have a diagnosed parent or sibling. Camp Quality NT manager Heather Keele said she is excited to bring the puppet show to the Northern Territory for the first time since 2015. Our loveable puppets Kylie, Dean and Melissa, provide an interactive and engaging way to give students the facts about cancer, reducing the likelihood of bullying, exclusion and anxiety. Camp Quality Primary School Program co-ordinator Shannon Rush and puppeteer Kimberley Fox visited four schools last week in Alice Springs. Its a really exciting time, we dont get to do it often, to see different schools and to see the Territory, Ms Rush said.
