RAIDID in the News – Apartment plan upsets the residents

Manningham Leader, July 9th. Frank & Les with their best “NOT HAPPY JAN” faces on, were able to share the reality of the over development, from Curlew Court itself. You can see the dead end of the Court behind them (us,) and we hope this is the first of many updates by the papers, in […]
