Byron business perspectives in a tough winter 

Having traded in Byron Bay for 47 years, Skallyrags owner, Rob Bass, said he’s never seen a winter like this one.
Brunswick Valley Historical Society Inc wishes to acknowledge the generosity of Dr Suresh.
Thanks to his legacy the society has been able to replace the roof on the museum and add insulation. No longer do we have to freeze in winter, roast in summer or worry about leaks in the heavy downpours.
We invite you to come and enjoy the museum on the corner of Myocum and Stuart Streets in Mullumbimby and appreciate the effect of Dr Suresh’s roof while exploring our interesting displays.
We wish to have a permanent display acknowledging Dr Suresh but we need a good photograph of him. If you have one we can scan we would appreciate the loan of it.
