Free mental health workshop for Byron businesses

Business owners in Byron Shire are invited to attend a free 'Healthy Mindset' workshop aimed at providing them with resources and tools to improve mental health and wellbeing, as well as the opportunity to connect with other business owners.

Tweed locals have a chance to raise issues with councillors at the Pottsville community markets on Sunday 19 February.

The next in the series of Councillors’ Community Catch-up will be held in the council’s Catch-up marquee at the markets from 9am to 1pm, giving residents the chance to drop in and talk to several councillors on any shire-related topic.

Mayor Barry Longland said the first two catch-ups last year had been a ‘wonderful chance for community members to talk face-to-face with the councillors about any issues they believe need to be addressed’.

‘Pottsville residents have shown tremendous community spirit at similar council forums in their town, so I expect the positive turnouts to continue at the 19 February stall,’ he said.

The catch-ups are held quarterly and rotate between community markets throughout Tweed Shire. For updates about the catch-ups,
