Jenelle Stanford, Mullum Chamber.

The Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce would like to take the opportunity to congratulate Byron Shire Council on its efforts to maintain the beautiful garden beds in the centre of Mullumbimby.

We were pleased when the council embarked on this endeavour several years ago, the gardens created were refined and classy, with a great mix of indigenous species in the flower beds, a good reflection of the community and its desires.

Even better has been the continuing attention to detail in the maintenance program, they are improving each year with the growth of plants, new plantings and continual weeding and tidying up.

Well done, it means much to the businesses of Mullumbimby and the broader community.
