Adding to the growing number of communities to declare themselves Gasfield Free were the villages of Eltham, Clunes, Numulgi-Woodlawn, Booyong and Bexhill, which celebrated with a large family/community celebration at the Eltham Pub on Saturday.

Declarations were handed to Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell by a very vocal and colourful ‘on-message’ group of local children.

Entertainment was provided by Luke Vassella and kids’ activities by Donna Starr-Walker and Tony Batchelor. The incredible Knitting Nannas Against Gas also joined in the celebrations along with representation from a number of already-declared CSG-free communities.
