Anti-DV umbrellas launched in Ballina

Rotary have partnered with NSW Police to design and distribute 150 umbrellas with a very clear message: 'Say NO to domestic violence'.

As the co-ordinator for the last few years for the North Sports Fields Groups, I want to congratulate everyone on a fabulous job of achieving a positive sports-field outcome for the north of the shire. It is now up to the community to help council staff and councillors move this project along and get the things that are required. It has been a great pleasure to have all of the north of the shire working together as one. We have proven that working together we can achieve anything.

It has been an honour to have met and spoken to all the dedicated people over the years, working through the many details needed to achieve this great outcome. I will not be continuing as co-ordinator but wish all the sports enthusiasts well on the next steps: encouraging Council to move quickly, getting this space up and running with the restrictions placed on it, etc.

Many wonderful people have offered their services free and have the qualifications to get this project done. Good luck and, again, heartfelt congratulations.

Kathy Norley, President, South Golden Beach Community Association


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. Once again. Well done Kathy and all the others who steered this issue through a course of best community outcome as opposed to cheap political point scoring with zero positive outcome.
