That’s the vision of the Brooklet Fernleigh Newrybar Group (BFNG), which is holding a public meeting this Sunday to canvass interest in the area.
The group is inviting residents of Brooklet, Fernleigh, Newrybar and Pearces Creek 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 is this Sunday, October 7, at Newrybar Hall, 2–4pm. 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].
