There are so many unsung heroes in our Shire and often the most ordinary things get overlooked. Over the past two-and-half traumatic years battling fires, covid and floods the crew at Yami’s cafe in Brunswick Heads have managed to stay open, every day, every week, year in, year out.
When every other business was closed, Zac and Joey, with their revolving support staff, have provided a welcoming beacon of hope and resilience and youthful optimism in Park Street, along with delicious food, coffee and cakes. To all the young local people who stepped up onto the front lines, we thank you for being there, for making life under siege more bearable with a cheerful smile, a newsy update and music drifting in the air.
It’s the simple things in life that matter, that bring joy and hope for the future. Showing up matters, even when there’s no profit to be made. Thanks to everyone at Yami’s for being there when our community needed it most.
