Do you love Lennox Head? Then it is time to join in the Love Lennox Carnival on Saturday, June 3, to immerse yourself in all things Lennox.

Top of the list for many residents will be an opportunity to celebrate the state government’s decision not to site a massive ski jump on the shore of Lake Ainsworth following a massive community campaign.

‘We are wholehearted and active in caring for our environment, planning for the future and honouring our past and want to share our passion with the community in a fun way to capture our special life style,’ said Lennox Head residents’ association (LHRA) president, Monica Wilcox.

Commemorating the work of Lennox pioneers, there will be a pictorial display in the Community Centre of how they saved the sand dunes.

Fifty years ago, volunteers constructed a fence of tea tree poles along the beach between Sport and Recreation and the current hotel to rebuild sand dunes destroyed in savage storms.

The success of that work can be seen today.

Lake Ainsworth’s dedicated group of Friends will be on hand to talk about their experiences of working with Ballina Shire Council staff Monday mornings to discover treasures and trash left behind by visitors.

Members of Lennox Community Gardens will be on hand to discuss all things gardening and answer questions relating to their projects including the proposed first community garden at Ocean Breeze reserve.

Sand mining on Newrybar Swamp Road is another hot topic. ‘We plan to alert our community on how [it] may affect us,’ Wilcox said.
