Messages of support for Club Capricorn

More than 30 jobs, mostly casual, will go when the resort closes in late June.

Capricorn Village Joint Venture has served notice that it intends to start work on extending its nearby housing development into the resort grounds. A local structure plan, which has room for a new hotel resort, is still to be finalised.

There would not be a caravan park and the developer would be required under the City of Wanneroo�s heritage policy to take photographs of the Club Capricorn buildings.

Here are some of our readers� reactions (there were more than 200 comments):

n Fleur Annabelle Warren-Beattie: Every Australia Day weekend saw suburbia closing in this year. Shame.

n Anthea Hancock: Sad to see it go. It�s nearly heritage lol.

n Marie Re DiGiovanni: Our family spent every Easter weekend there for years. However, the place was getting pretty run down and the teens considered it �uncool�. So we stopped going. Hope they find a new home for the Atlantis statues.

n Jane Destruktos Eddington: People have known for years that Club Cap was going to be shut down and to be fai, the place is run down and very dated. It hasn�t been refurbished because this closure has been part of the plan for at least the past 15 years. It�s not exactly a surprise.

n James Gardiner: More homes� why not do the resort up, create some jobs, give everyone, including the locals, somewhere to go?

n Rebecca Preston: Our group of 10-12 families have been going to CC for 10 years! How very sad!

n Kari Wilson: Club Cap is where my husband and I met 17 years ago and where my work friends and I go for our girls� weekends. Sad it�s going.

Local resident Clare Sharp has organised a campaign to keep the resort and there is a Facebook page: Save Capricorn Resort from the Bulldozers.
