4WD restrictions at South Ballina beach to stay

Moves towards use of a smart phone app to help control 4WD access to South Ballina’s beach have failed in a recent Ballina Shire Council meeting.

What a privilege it was as an older resident to be able to participate and enjoy the annual Mullumbimby Show.

The grounds are a credit to those who maintain and care for this special facility, the mowing and the planting of many new trees, the gardens and the many improvements done during COVID. 

The whole place was a little oasis and looked superb. It was great to see the many volunteers working so hard on Thursday and Friday, (and I’m sure for many weeks prior as well) most of whom are younger members of all the traditional families. 

This is the way it’s always been done in Mullumbimby for many years. These families have made things happen for decades. The weather was also kind this year inviting very big crowds. Well done everyone, we do appreciate your efforts, and I’m sure this little show will continue to be supported for many more years.

Gill Lomath, Mullumbimby
