Dear News Of The Area,
I UNDERSTAND there is a TV show currently being filmed in Medowie which involves the building of a house to raise money for a children’s charity.

I also understand from your publication that ‘100% of the materials, labour, furniture and furnishings are donated.
It is disappointing to say the least to learn that only one of the contractors involved in the build is local.
I believe even the Rotary van on site is not from the local area.
Medowie has recently demonstrated amazing community spirit by coming together to raise around $70,000 for drought relief and the local businesses involved have been duly recognised for their participation.
In light of this effort it seems remarkably disappointing and somewhat inappropriate that local businesses have not even been invited to donate to, or be involved in this worthy building project.
