‘Leave our oval alone’

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

 

Sir – I am writing about the governments proposal to build the new Indigenous Art Gallery in Alice Springs.

 

Many people in Alice Springs DO NOT want the gallery built on our oval.

 

ANZAC oval is an important part of our town, it’s a social, sporting and cultural place and we don’t want to lose it.

 

It also has  historical value as the first ANZAC service was conducted at the base of ANZAC  hill in 1933.

 

It was also used as a camp for the military in WW2. Leave our oval alone.
