The final lamppost has been decorated in Mullumbimby by students at Cobbers Pre-School who are leaving their mark for all to see. The project was instigated by Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce and has seen all the lamppost in the main street of Mullumbimby decorated by students from Mullumbimby High School and Shearwater, except for this final addition.

Craig Watson, from Soul Patterson Chemist who is a member of the Mullum Chamber was on hand to help the little children reach as high as they could to make sure they all hand a chance to get their hand prints on the pole.

‘We thought this was a great way to beautify the town, keep it local and include the community,’ said Jenelle Stanford, president of the Mullum Chamber.

The Mullumbimby Newsagent and Mitre 10 donated the paint and materials used for the project.
