Ballina Shire Council meeting wrap-up

The last Ballina meeting was another bruising encounter for some councillors, though there were several unanimous decisions too.

If you’ve ever suffered from back pain, you are not alone. Aproximately  90 per cent of Australians experience it at some time in their lives according to British physiotherapist and author Sarah Key.

Key’s greatest claim to fame is having treated the Queen and her promise is that most people only ever have one appointment with her – because that is all they need.

Author of the popular books Back Sufferers Bible and Back in action, and now with an iPhone and iPad app, Key nevertheless sees the value in touring and talking.

She will be conducting a talk and workshops at the Byron Bay Community Centre in May. The events are not cheap, but there are earlybird rates for all of the sessions.

Tickets to Sarah Key Talks Back are on sale now from the Byron Bay Community Centre Box Office. Phone 02 6685 6807 or visit www.byroncentre.com.au.

Evening lecture: Monday 14 May 7.30pm-9.30pm. $85 earlybird / $95 from 7 May

Workshop: Tuesday 15 May 9.30am-1:00pm. $225 earlybird / $250 from 7 May (max 25 people)

Lecture + workshop: $290 earlybird / $320 from 7 May
