Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: The Sol of Mullumbimby

I love walking through cemeteries. I love to read the gravestones. They are like the first and last page of a novel whose contents I will never know. Here lies many from my community; they were born, lived, and then lost. They were loved. This evening I am walking with my 11-year-old daughter and my husband through Mullumbimby’s cemetery. It is a quiet and beautiful place. I feel the stories rumbling under our feet. I never understand why people see these places as creepy. They are places of reverence and remembering.

Lismore City Council say that the Lismore Base Hospital precinct will return to the parking controls that were in place pre-COVID from Monday, 18 January 2021.

All-day paid parking along Hunter and Dalziel streets and time-limited parking along Weaver and McKenzie streets and Laurel Avenue will be reintroduced from this date.

Parking restrictions were eased for six months in April 2020 in the Lismore Base Hospital precinct in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was further extended in October for another three months.

Changes will be made in the coming weeks to parking signage and meter displays to return parking controls to pre-COVID operations.
