|We aren’t sure whether it was Hans Sipsma’s cooking or Tony Cooper’s barbecue which tipped the scales, but Brian Green, leader of the opposition, enjoyed last week’s visit and meal with us so much that he came back to Franklin to announce that ‘a Labor State Government would contribute $450,000 to establish a Maritime Heritage Centre to expand on the town’s renowned Wooden Boat Centre’. The Brooke St Pier roof will rise again. Read all about it in the ‘Mercury online’ at http://bit.ly/1IfuQsn (if you missed it in Tuesday’s paper edition).
