2022 Environmental Citizen of the Year Awards

Two local groups have been nominated for the he Environmental Citizen of the Year Awards, an initiative of The Australia Day Council of NSW in partnership with Return and Earn.

As Schoolies kicks into high gear, Byron Bay’s Cheeky Monkeys have something extra to celebrate.

Along with Lismore’s Mary Gilhooley’s, they have been removed from the list of violent venues in NSW.

This does not mean that no violent incidents took place in or around the venues – Mary Gilhooleys had nine incidents since last year’s report while Cheeky Monkeys had eight.

The list itself has halved this year, with 33 venues on either level one (12 to 18 violent incidents in a year) or level two (19 or more violent incidents in a year) restrictions.
