Tecoma Primary School, Burwood Highway, Tecoma.
Come to a public meeting to help build the campaign to stop McDondalds opening a 24-hour store in Tecoma in the Dangenongs. This corporate development will wreck the local character and amenity of the area and we don't need to let profit-driven multi-nationals dominate our local area. The local community recently stopped the development of a large supermarket in the town but the struggle continues.
