Just thought I'd mention, because i've seen too many people doing it..

But can we avoid taking shortcuts over the newly laid grass until it has fully set in. We don't want Sheps to become another dirt bowl.

I agree with George on the grass - any chance YSSY could put a temporary 'tape' around the grass. It will be ruined by people walking all over it unfortunately

In attempt to rename the "Tower Mound" (Plane Spotting) to "Shep's Mound" - perhaps when you get a chance, suggest an edit by clicking here and type in "Shep's Mound" in place of "Tower Mound"

I already suggested such an edit but it was rejected.

I can only recommend that more people do so, so the Google-bots get the hint

Unhappy Four car spaces lost

The No-Standing signs were always coming, though were delayed.

The space is "meant to be" a turn around area only.

Cheers.

I have also suggested the same be changed, so lets see how it goes.

Done the same, hopefully they get the idea that it is called Shep's and not Tower Mound.

I've tried again and yet again it wasn't applied. Next step is to use Twitter! https://twitter.com/BidgeeWagga/stat...03053857873920
