Lyn Diehm, Mullumbimby

There have been reports relating to the danger of the Brunswick footbridge and the South Beach Road bridge. I’m surprised that there has been no mention of the dangerous and disgraceful steps that lead into Simpsons Creek at the sound shell area that is so popular with adults and children.

I have camped at the Terrace Reserve Park for more than 50 years. It is a risk getting down the steps with the bottom one broken away, with sharp broken concrete that can tear your foot open.

Over the holidays a lot of people had injuries and some had to go to the chemist or hospital for further treatment.

I have been to many beaches up and down the coast and never have I seen any entry into the water so disgusting. I am ashamed that it is my beach. The steps are collapsing and a total danger.

The council should make sure the barbecues are working as a lot of people turned away and left the area as they could not use them.
