Some of the City of Victor Harbor council members, lead by councilor Moira Jenkins, have called for the banning of helium filled balloons at community events, following the number of balloons released at recent Christmas pageants and other celebrations over the festive period.
There’s concerns that the balloons released could cause damage to wildlife and sea creatures in the area. After all, what goes up, must come down.
So are helium balloons a thing of the past? Should we be more environmentally responsible?
