A long time ago my husband had to attend a meeting in Redfern. He works in the health and academic sector and it was a consultation with some First Nations clinicians and community workers. He arrived a little earlier for the meeting to the centre – not your typical clinical setting but a regular house. On arrival he was greeted by an older woman who led him to a table and offered him a cup of tea. They chatted. Had a laugh. She offered him a biscuit.

Lismore police have asked for assistance in tracking down a man who smashed seven windscreens at a car yard on Friday evening.

Richmond local area command duty officer Mick Dempsey said seven vehicles were damaged at North Coast Wholesale Cars in Union Street around 7pm on Friday.

Inspector Dempsey said police believed a male threw rocks at the cars as he walked past the car yard.

He was last seen heading west along the Bruxner Highway.

Inspector Dempsey said the man was described as Aboriginal in appearance, unshaven and 1.8 metres (6 foot) tall.

At the time the man was wearing a black baseball cap with an orange brim, white hooded jacket and long dark pants.

Anyone with information should contact Lismore Police on 6626 0599 or Crime Stoppers on 1800-333-000.
