Is Hayes next?

CLOSURE of the Hayes Prison Farm may be the next bombshell in the Derwent Valley, with ABC 1 television news reporting that a decision on the facility’s future is imminent. Coincidentally, the jail farm is the responsibility of Corrections Minister Nick McKim – who also serves as Education Minister and has targetted Glenora District High School for downgrading to a primary school.

The Hayes Prison Farm, near New Norfolk, houses 70 minimum security inmates and has been subject to rumours of closure for some years. ABC 1 News reported that Mr McKim “hopes to be in a position to make an announcement in the very near future.”
