His Chiefliness, Jon Stanhope, is thrilled to announce that Bob Winnell, on behalf of The Village Building Company, is chipping in $1.5 million for the Jon Stanhope Memorial Gardens (aka the arboretum).
We’re sure such an act of generosity would never sway decisions around planning approvals.
Also of interest is that $1 million of the money is going to build a visitor centre on the site. We await with interest to see which building company gets that contract.
Other businesses are now encouraged to dig deep, you wouldn’t want to be the last one in now would you?
