Easter Services!

By johnboy - 26 March 2013 49

Territory and Municipal Services are letting you all know what they’re doing when over the great Easter disruption.

Here’s the skinny:

    — The malingering thugs known as Bus drivers will be working a leisurely Sunday schedule for all four days of Easter so bad luck if you don’t have a car and wanted to see family.

    — Canberra Connect is taking Good Friday and the Holiday Monday off.

    — The Domestic Animal Services shelter is closed for the whole break. Instead call Canberra Connect on 13 22 81 except for when that’s shut.

    — Libraries will be open on the Sunday but shut the rest of the time.

    — Friday garbage collections will happen on the Saturday.

    — Yarralumla Nursery will be closed Good Friday and the Wholesale Warehouse is taking the whole weekend off.

What’s Your opinion?

I thought take-away sales of alcohol was illegal on Good Friday? Or does the ACT have an exemption?

why would this be the case?

Because you’re meant to make your own out of water, of course!

Why would it be the case that the ACT is exempt? Or why is take-away alcohol prohibited on Good Friday? I don’t know why the ACT would be exempt, but I’m wondering why the bottle shop referred to would be open because there are generally regulations about the sale of alcohol on Good Friday. You can basically drink in a pub, but not take alcohol away.

why would it be the case that there are sales restrictions of alcohol on good friday?

Doctor makes a good point, is jesus lord and saviour supposed to come and personally bring me my vodka?

Canberra Cellars at Belconnen are open 10am to 11pm everyday over Easter, including Good Friday. Being located next to the Belco bus depot, you may even bump into a bussie at the end of their shift and shock/horror discover that they are a pretty good bunch of folk. Speaking of folk, any festival news? PS… Canberra Cellars at Braddon and Gold Creek are open 10am to 11pm every day except Good Friday.

It’s a dumb ass holiday anyways. I for one will be working and trying to catch up on invoicing and quotes while I lose money because my staff, none of who are religious, are down the coast fishing because the government enforces a death and zombie birthday of a imaginary man from a fairy tale.

Boo-hoo, it must be tough to be an employer, having to pay holiday rates or give people the day off, barely scraping by. Although obviously it’s not that awful or else you’d jump back into the work-force, so it’s a safe bet to say you still come out well on top at the end of the financial year, yeah?

Small business is tough, yes.

i read the title and thought i’d find out where to go pray and sing hymns…

If you’re really truly serious, Aunty Poetix can make some suggestions.

thanks aunty p – but happy enough with my cynical agnostic noshing of the chocolate bilby; xmas eve services more uplifting anyway and a good way to stray into the festive season and have an excuse for the day’s first tipple…

No. I won’t bite. Too obvious
