Why we love Tamworth, money from mining and the ongoing push for an aquatic centre in Tamworth - your comments here.

Mining money 

Many years ago I suggested that mining companies pass on 20% of their revenue to local Councils. This of course was not done.

Mining has caused terrible disruption to our country and rehabilitation is ignored or poorly done.

The shareholders of most mines are foreigners and they are the people who gain, not the people who live near the mines, or those who have their lives disrupted through disease or dust.

Technology has proven that fossil fuels are a thing of the past.

Let us become modern people.

Why do you love Tamworth? Hashtag your photos of the city with #OurTamworth to show the nation what we have to offer.

I like the shops available in Tamworth that Armidale doesn't have the variety of food 

And the centre point cinema complex 

Plus you guys have the marigold which I reckon has got to be the best value Chinese food in Tamworth

Tamworth was a great country town that had lots of opportunities. It was the hub of the North/West, New England Area but it has changed heaps over the past few years. Social security, crime etc has changed this city and that is really sad

Tamworth City Swimming Club has started a renewed push for action on a year-round aquatic centre.

Why not go one better and build a water park with slides etc. If the money is going to be spent it may as well be spent on a tourist attraction and job creation.
