LETTER TO THE EDITOR:
THE Seaspray gas field free celebration on July 28 was the most magnificent display of community spirit and cohesion.
More than 650 from all walks of life attended to show support for the farmers and residents of the Seaspray community that are affected by the threat of unconventional and CSG mining in Seaspray and Longford.
It was however, disappointing that neither Gippsland South MLA Peter Ryan or Wellington Shire mayor Scott Rossetti, or any of their assistants were present to accept the gas field free declarations from their community members.
Perhaps they had prior engagements.
Hopefully they can make it to the CSG-free declaration ceremonies of Longford, Maffra, Heyfield, Briagolong, Yarram, Stratford and everywhere in between and beyond.
