Free mental health workshop for Byron businesses

Business owners in Byron Shire are invited to attend a free 'Healthy Mindset' workshop aimed at providing them with resources and tools to improve mental health and wellbeing, as well as the opportunity to connect with other business owners.

 

An emergency meeting of Lennox Head Bowling Club has been called for tonight at 7pm after an announcement by its merged partner Ramsgate RSL that the club would be cut loose following continuing losses.

The club has about 1800 members and employs 29 staff.

The Bowlo merged with the Ramsgate RSL six years ago in an effort to stay open but that has not stopped it losing money to the extent of about $850,000 over the last two years.

Club member Pip Carter, who will chair tonight’s meeting, said the club would look to the example of Bangalow Bowling Club.

Bangalow Bowlo went into voluntary administration earlier this year before raising money from members and townspeople, enabling it to renovate and reopen the club.
