  1. Someone organise a weekly 3 month long go-kart building workshop for youth & arrange a billycart derby like Bangalow’s in Lismore!! Community kids need to feel like they belong and have a place in the community. It’s not possible for parents to give that. Our government is shite and failing when it comes to honouring, representing, funding and supporting our youths!
