This story was part of an elaborate April Fool’s Day joke we pulled on our readers last week. We agree it would be a silly idea, which is why it appealed so much.
Our coinciding April Fool’s Day post at www.facebook.com/MelvilleTimes attracted more than 300 views in 24 hours and emails, two of which are published here.
– Please register my strong protest against this really silly idea. Totally incongruous with surrounds.
– No, no, no and again no, please do not disturb our beautiful peaceful rivershore with a giant ferris wheel.
Coffee at the foreshore will never be the same again.
