Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Crossing Over

I miss travelling. I miss the thrill of going somewhere new. The last few years feels like we’ve had no adventures. No interesting and foreign lands to explore.  It’s been all about staying at home. Thanks to Annastacia Palaszczuk, going to Queensland feels a bit like going overseas. I’ve had to cross the border for work a few times lately. 

James McKenzie runs for Tweed Shire Council

James McKenzie is running as an ungrouped candidate running in the upcoming Tweed Council election and is from Eungella.

To the local folk affected by noisy music after midnight I sympathise and understand your concerns.

Several calls were received on Friday 6 March by a committee member of the hall who responded immediately by getting out of bed and checking the hall which was vacant.

He then followed the sound to a private party in full swing at the 500-metre mark along the Coolamon Scenic Drive.

Please note the hall is a cultural and music venue and has been for many, many years. We, the committee, now adhere to a strict curfew and sound levels are monitored inside the hall at a max of 97db up until midnight.

The hall is for all the community and local interest is welcomed and we listen to any concerns. Our next committee meeting is at 7.30pm Monday 13 April in the hall and all are welcome to attend.

 Billy Wrencher, president, Coorabell Hall and School of Arts
