Hospital staff want to park for free while they work

It seems that Lismore Base isn’t the only hospital whose workers would like to park their cars for free while they work.

Places are still available for free basic digital photography workshops as part of the 8th Brunswick Heads Simple Pleasures Photography Competition.

The workshops are intended for kids and adults who have small compact cameras and would like to get more out of their shots.

The participants will learn basic camera operations (what all the buttons mean) and composition.

The workshops are being held this Saturday 21 July at the CWA Hall in Park Street, Brunswick Heads.

  • The kids’ workshop will be from 1pm to 2.30pm.
  • The adults workshops will be from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.

Workshop registrations are essential. Please call the Visitor Centre on 6685 1003 or email [email protected].

The theme for this year’s competition is ‘the old, the new, the green, the blue’.
