What’s Nu in COVID variants? Highlighted need for stronger Australian contribution

According to the End COVID For All campaign the emergence of a new coronavirus variant in Botswana, most likely to be called 'Nu', underlines the need for Australia to step up its contribution to co-oridnated global efforts to prevent the virus’ spread and mutation.

The Brunswick Heads Progress Association’s inaugural pet show certainly drew the locals together in what has to be described as a fun day out.

Organised as a fundraising event with the Brunswick Heads Primary School, its success was dependent in part on the generosity of those who donated the grand prizes.

For those we are indebted to Kate Nutt, Brunswick Hotel, My Vet, Angela and Trevor Brand, and Woolworths.

A big thank you to retired veterinarian John Hollingsworth, practising Mullumbimby vet Richard Gregory and Billinudgel veterinarian nurse Belinda Witney who did the judging.

Thanks also has to go to the Billinudgel Pub for the cup trophy awarded to the fastest pet dog on the North Coast. The heats and final were an absolute hoot.

The assistance from Print Rescue and Brunswick Heads Newsagent was also appreciated.

We are also indebted to Byron Shire Council for their support. It was just superb.

Thank you to Geraldine’s team who skilfully demonstrated what our companion dogs are capable of doing.

The event was also a learning curve for the organisers. Fortunately, people embraced the spirit of the day and the changes that were incurred. Next time we promise to have an adequate public address system

If hoots of laughter and widespread grins were any criteria for an enjoyable day out, then this had to be it. Congratulations to all the entrants who really made the day.

Patricia Warren, secretary, Brunswick Heads Progress Association
