Last updated:


A garage sale, which will be a pre-Christmas fund raiser for the animal refuge centre, Paws and Claws, will be held on Sunday, at 6-8 Teamsters Close, Craiglie, from 8am to 2pm.

Among the items on sale include furniture, bric-a-brac, clothing, books and DVDs.

Paws and Claws is currently locked in a legal battle in the Planning and Environment Court Cairns where it is contesting an appeal by five Craiglie business entities.

The businesses waited until the 11th hour to lodge an appeal in the Planning and Environment Court to scupper Paws and Claws’ plans to convert a former printing company into an animal shelter in Teamsters Close in Craiglie. 

The judge in the case last has ruled that there must be a ‘without prejudice meeting’ by all parties by 22 February.
