Local news in the local paper

In this week's Huon News, take a trip back in time to Geeveston in 1971, we take a look at a project completed by the school students, recently unearthed by a former teacher, which paints a vivid picture of the thriving country town at the height of the apple industry, when forestry and the paper pulp mill were the major employers.

The Huon News also talks to James Neville-Smith about the feasibility study into a possible pellet mill at the Southwood site.

We attended the Far South Future AGM to hear about the future plans of the group, now that the proposed woodchip export facility is off the table.

And don't miss the coverage of last weekend's grand finals, where the Huonville Lions Seniors side and the Cygnet Football Club's Southern Storm Colts competed for the premiership.

The Huon News is available at outlets all around the Huon Valley and beyond, as well as by subscription online.
