Why’s Revolve closed?

DuffyMum 4 July 2007 35

I caught the tail end of the news on the radio this morning where there was a mention that Revolve and/or the Mugga Lane Tip is now closed. A friend mentioned to me this morning that she tried to go to Revolve on the weekend but found not only was the place shut but there was all this red tape over the door. And another friend mentioned that they had heard that staff had been locked out, that the police were involved.

Anyone know what’s happened? And why?

[Update-040707] – The Daily Telegraph have added their thoughts to the situation here.

How come then the Government wasn’t this quick in moving the other famous overstaying ‘tennant’ ?

Junk is junk. I should be allowed to drop it off for free if they are going to make subsequent profit out of it though.

Also it gives them some sort of work history to put on their CV’s instead of big gaps in employment.

Exactly – and they learn skills which may get them out of the workshop, and into another job. And they do not end up hanging around shopping centres and pubs bored out of their brains and doing stupid things.

Unfortunately these sort of considerations are forgotten about in the rush to improve the bottom line as quickly as possible.

Sheltered workshops also provide vital social interaction for those employed therein.

Sheltered workshops are a community asset.

Take them away, and we are left paying the dole for all those people.

That would explain it then…

I always wondered if the old Belconnen revolve was staffed by prsioners on day release or something.

Some were, sort of. years ago a mate of mine got Community Service for getting into a brawl at a pub and spent numerous weekends “working” out at Belconnen.

I believe the correct term is ‘sheltered workshop’.

I see the Revolve mob are in today’s Daily Tele claiming they are a charity organisation.

And yet the funny thing is, after telling “no we can’t sell that”, you’d haul your trailer around to the garbage area, pay, heave it all over that stupid concrete lip, then they’d come AND PICK THROUGH IT!!
