Mullumbimby’s Main Street has been given a splash of colour thanks to a joint effort by students and businesses.
The town’s power poles, which were covered in old posters and disused tape, are now vibrant and reflective of the community.
Tursa organised some workers to clean and prepare the poles while students at Mullumbimby High School and Shearwater painted the poles as part of their school work.
Mitre 10 and Dulux graciously donated the paint for the project.
Chamber member and newsagent owner Jenelle Stanford said the poles look much better.
‘The pole out the front of our shop always looked awful with tape and torn posters hanging off it. It had a real negative impact on our shop,’ Jenelle said.
The project is expected to be completed over the next couple of weeks.
