Andrew Hall, Ocean Shores
Oi, you new chums, refos from the cities, new residents and local crazies who are filling the Shire; please pay attention.
Mullumbimby is special, and is getting crowded. We need to maintain its special ambience and I want to draw your attention to a particular problem with this before disaster strikes, or, at least a nasty accident.
So pay attention now. Part of Mullum’s specialness is ‘PEDESTRIANS HAVE RIGHT OF WAY’ – not cars.
You new chums need to realise that when you emigrate to (or even just visit) Mullumbimby it takes approximately three months to slow down to the local speed. It is a blissful, gentle, friendly speed. And worthwhile achieving.
Also, it makes it much safer for we pedestrians as we wander across the road. The whole town is a pedestrian crossing. So join us and learn the art of gentle driving. It will lower your stress levels and help you blend in to paradise.
Lay back and become a local. Slow down.
