Kinship Festival returns Saturday 25 May to Murwillumbah

The Kinship Festival – a free North Coast cultural festival led by First Nations people – will be held in Knox Park, Murwillumbah on Saturday, 25 May.

After witnessing a child run across Left Bank Road, Mullumbimby, in front of a truck to catch a bus to Shearwater School last week, I am extremely concerned about having a 64-place child-care centre build near the Tallowood estate.

On speaking to the bus driver, it’s a regular occurrence that the children dash between traffic to catch their bus as there is no crossing for them.

More traffic, more building noise for local residents, ongoing noise for neighbours who have chosen to live in a quiet spot, more development in our lovely little town.

As of next year, the Mullumbimby Hospital is closing down, leaving a huge block of land to be sold. More development?

Mullumites, let’s object and keep our peaceful town, peaceful.
