Ballina council votes for waterfront affordable and social housing

The Ballina Shire Council has voted unanimously to ask for state government commitment on waterfront affordable and social housing as part of a marina upgrade.

Carols by Candlelight preparations are underway in Mullumbimby, and the event will this year be held for the last time at the hospital grounds.

Kicking off on Sunday, December 13 from 6.30pm, the family event will feature a packed schedule of local talent as well as a special visit from a certain jolly fat man from the far north.

Event organiser Margaret Hatch is expecting a large turnout to the event, owing to the community’s nostalgic attachment to the hospital site.

End of an era

‘I’ve been doing the Carols at the hospital grounds as far back as the 80s,’ Margaret says.

‘This will be the end of an era, of a tradition that consistently welcomed Christmas to our town.’

While it’s a free event, candles and glow sticks will be available for purchase on the night, along with song books and bottled water.

The event is sponsored by the Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce.
