Taxis given hope

FOLK in Blackwater could be hailing a taxi again after a meeting between the Department of Transport and Shirley Currie last week.

A department representative met Mrs Currie to discuss the possible tender of two of her four licences.

This month Mrs Currie was concerned she would be forced to hand over her licences without payment when she retired. Although nothing was yet finalised, Mrs Currie said she was hopeful of a positive resolution.

Mrs Currie and her late husband Laurie owned and ran the Blackwater Taxi business for 27 years, until December last year when she was forced to close her doors following difficulty finding employees after her husband’s sudden death.
