Get ready for the biggest little banquet, to be held on Burringbar Street, Mullumbimby, on August 29 from 7pm.

A single banquet table stretching down Mullum’s main street is planned, where 150 guests will enjoy a three-course banquet, featuring produce grown locally at the Community Gardens and prepared by Coolamon Tree Bistro, the Italian Joint and Mullumbimby High School.

Mullum’s Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the event, which will also be accompanied by organic wine and beer.

Organiser Jenelle Stanford says the event will be something new for Mullum.

‘It will be a real demonstration of community as hundreds of people all break bread at the same table,’ Jenelle says.

‘Everyone’s really excited about the banquet and we expect a sell-out event.’

Tickets are $50 per person and are available now from Mullumbimby Newsagency.

During the event, local traffic will be diverted to avoid the Burringbar Street road closure from the Council Chambers to the Post Office. For more information, contact Mullum chamber secretary Obi McDonald-Saint at [email protected]

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
