Salvos need Woolgoolga premises

WOOLGOOLGA will lose its Salvation Army family store and weekly welfare visits unless the Salvos can find new premises.

Major Stephen Metcher said they had been advised yesterday that they would have to vacate their present premises in Woolgoolga because part of it was required as an alfresco dining area, which would be incompatible with their delivery trucks.

“We cannot operate without a loading dock,” Major Metcher said.

“We need a small office space or a large house and we need it urgently, within the next week and a half, because we only have 25 days to move.”

He said they were keen to maintain their Woolgoolga family store and welfare office because if they had to move these operations back to Coffs Harbour, it would make life harder for needy people in the northern area of the city.

Major Metcher said the premises did not need to be in the centre of Woolgoolga but needed to have reasonable access to the public.

Anyone who has suitable premises or knows of premises which may suit can contact Major Metcher on 0418 127 359 or family store manager Margaret Bridgman at the Coffs Harbour family store on 6650 0310.
