Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Killer Crocs!

When I was 18, to rebel against the world my parents had created, I shaved a half Mohawk, encouraged my hair to stand on end, grew my armpit hair, wore torn black rags, too much eyeliner and wore 18-hole Dr. Martens boots. These days, to give their parents the shits, the kids are wearing Crocs. With socks. They’re going for comfort.

There have been a lot of renovations at the Red Devils Clubhouse at their grounds in Byron Bay. The showers and toilets, kitchen, and also the bar have undergone a revamp, and even the outside and the roof have received a lick of paint in preparation for the new season.

Last weekend they held an event to show off the renovations. ‘We opened up the grounds to the community to show what we’ve done’, said Shanay Eberlein, joint caretaker with Ben Webber at the club.

Ben has conducted and organised most of the renovations.

‘We’re hoping to open up the club for more functions and make it more of an appealing site for the community, as it hasn’t had much love over the last couple of decades,’ said Shanay. ‘We have lots of plans for more events in the future – we’d like to make it a more family-friendly environment and last weekend’s event was to showcase the new look.’

In addition the Stone & Wood caravan Bonnie, MLC Ben Franklin was in attendance at the weekend, praising the leadership of Nathan Cross and Ben Webber at the club.
