A community screening of Local Futures’ new film, 'Planet Local: A Quiet Revolution', will be held today, Friday, July 1, at The Farm in Byron Bay from 6pm. Damon Gameau and Pacha Light will be joining Helena Norberg-Hodge for a discussion afterwards.

While it got off to a late start in the CSG-free communities campaign, Byron Shire is now quickly playing catch-up.

The first locality to declare itself CSG-free, Main Arm, is holding its celebration this Saturday commencing at 2.30pm in Durrumbul Hall. There will be music, food and an official handover of CSG-free street certificates to mayor Simon Richardson at 6pm.

Meanwhile, the good folks of Brunswick Heads and beyond are holding their first meeting to start the process of surveying the area’s streets this coming Saturday November 17 at 3pm at the Memorial Hall (opposite the laundromat in Fingal St), Brunswick Heads.

Organiser Amica Sanday says everyone is welcome, especially if you live in Brunswick Heads, Ocean Shores, Sth Golden Beach, Byron Bay, Mullumbimby, Bangalow, Suffolk Park etc.

‘It is important if you want to declare your town CSG-free that you come to a public meeting and see the very effective process that has been used so successfully at Main Arm in Byron Shire, in the Lismore Shire and in Richmond Valley Shire,’ she said.
