Hospital staff want to park for free while they work

It seems that Lismore Base isn’t the only hospital whose workers would like to park their cars for free while they work.

If you’re a local or a visitor to the north coast and are looking for something fun to do these holidays, it’s not too late to get involved with the all-new action and excitement of T20 Blast.

More than 4,000 boys and girls on the north coast took part in MILO T20 Blast school cups during term three and now local kids and holiday-makers will have the opportunity to continue the cricket fun with Lismore, Ballina, Grafton and Coffs Harbour conducting MILO T20 Blast school holiday programs in January.

MILO T20 Blast bridges the gap between MILO in2CRICKET and junior club cricket. The program introduces primary-school-aged boys and girls to real games of T20 in a fun, inclusive and action-packed environment where kids can develop the skills learnt from MILO in2CRICKET and build their passion for Australia’s favourite sport.

The following MILO T20 Blast school holiday programs will be on offer for 8–12-year-old boys and girls this month:

•  Lismore January 13–14  at Oakes Oval, 9.30am to 1.30pm

•  Ballina January 15–16 at Kingsford Smith Oval, 9.30am to 1.30pm

•  Grafton January 16–17 at Ellem Oval, 9.30am to 1.30pm

•  Coffs Harbour January 22–23 at Brelsford Park, 9.30am to 1.30pm.

The two-day holiday programs cost $99pp and include a t-shirt and hat plus more!

Registrations are open now at www.t20blast.com.au or for more information please contact [email protected].
