Time to ride the election cycle

Bicycle advocacy is vanishingly rare in our community. Amid all the noise about net zero, my search for bicycle advocate candidates to vote for on Saturday only turned up vague references to ‘reducing our reliance on cars’ and ‘increasing public transport connectivity’. The closest thing to policy was: ‘It’s time to create bike paths all over the Shire.’ 

Lismore’s 2014 Young Songwriters’ Competition final awards night has been postponed from this Thursday, May 15, until late July.

Lismore City Council announced the delay to the event owing to the ill-health of the organiser and problems with availability of some judges.

According Lismore’s community development officer, Lizette Twisleton, the event will now go ahead on July 24 at Lismore City Hall with finalists performing to a live panel of judges.

‘We’ve had 64 entries and there is some outstanding talent once again this year,’ she said.

‘The postponement is just a little hiccup. We are planning for a big night as always and if last year is anything to go by, there will be plenty of surprises and our audiences will be blown away by the amazing musicianship of our local youth.’

The Young Songwriters’ Competition is for youth aged 12 to 25. Finalists will compete for a range of prizes including recording time and music equipment. The event also gives young people a chance to mingle with experienced musicians and make contacts in the local music industry.

For more information phone Lizette Twisleton on 1300 878 387.
