Following on the success of last weekend’s CSG-free communities event at Eltham Pub, with Eltham, Clunes, Numulgi-Woodlawn, Booyong and Bexhill all declaring themselves gasfield-free communities, nearby villages in the Ballina shire are quickly playing catch-up

The Brooklet Fernleigh Newrybar Group (BFNG) is inviting residents of those three villages plus Pearces Creek to attend a public meeting to hear about CSG mining and its potential effects and to vote on whether they want their localities to join the growing list of northern rivers CSG-free communities.

The meeting will be held on Sunday October 7 at Newrybar Hall from 2 to 4pm. There will be speakers and a short film shown. The aim is to gain consensus to survey the entire community and if a majority of residents are in favour, declare Brooklet Fernleigh Newrybar CSG free.

If you are interested please turn up. If you’re unable to attend the meeting and would like more information, email [email protected].
