Bangalow Parklands easier to enjoy thanks to new shared path

Council has completed a new 76 metre shared path at Bangalow Parklands that links the park shelter and rotunda to the carpark and amenities building, enabling better access to the park for people of all ages and abilities.
“We’d like to send a huge thank you to the dedicated Bangalow Parklands team for their involvement in the design and implementation of this path,” Council’s Director Infrastructure Services, Phil Holloway said.
“We’ve invested $70,000 in this upgrade and we’re thrilled to have delivered a pathway that opens up use of the park to people who’ve previously found it difficult to get around including parents with kids in strollers and those using wheelchairs and mobility scooters,” he said.
As part of Council’s shared path project, an existing garden bed adjacent to the amenities building was also extended and refurbished and new accessible hardwood picnic tables are scheduled for instalment mid-August.
Bangalow Parklands team member, Christobel Munson said that many local families and individuals would be delighted with the parkland’s new path.
“Adding a new path might sound like a small thing but it can make a massive difference to people’s use and enjoyment of our beautiful parklands and we are really happy with the result,” she said.
In other good news for the park, Council is giving the old bridge an $85,000 refurbishment. A heavy crane is required to move the upgraded bridge back into place and this can only occur after an extended period of dry weather.
“The bridge has been closed since late 2017, so it’s such good news that once again, we’ll all be able to access the far side of the creek, where we have plans to clear up accumulated flood damage and restore our native plantings there, for all to enjoy,” Ms Munson said.

Enjoy a taste of country at sunset this summer

 

Those in the know have probably already experienced the delights of Frida’s Field, a 120 acre regenerative farm and restaurant located in the tiny village of Nashua, just 10 minutes from Bangalow in the Byron Bay hinterland.

The three set menu lunch service has bolstered the establishment’s reputation for distinctive country cuisine, providing seasonal and local produce.

Frida’s Field is now offering a Summer Sundowners sitting starting this Saturday, November 11 from 4pm.

Come and enjoy the al fresco setting on the venue’s expansive lawns where you will enjoy casual snacks and drinks while you take in the colourful sunsets over the green pastures, framed by the orchard-lined hills and the newly-planted 500 tree rainforest regenerations project.

With a selection of Ploughman’s Plates with house-made terrines, pickles, chutneys, locally-made cheese and vegetable crudites, plus a selection of tartines (open-faced sourdough sandwiches), you will not go hungry.

There is also the grilled beef with café de Paris butter, fish rillette with farm pickles or grilled zucchini and ricotta.

As the golden hour approaches, raise your glass with a range of cocktails made from local spirits and house-made syrups, using Frida’s grown ingredients of lemon myrtle, elderflower and fresh herbs.

Local beers and wines are also on offer.

“Those few hours around sunset are just the most magical time of day at Frida’s Field,” said co-founder Jeanie Wylie.

“The venue faces north-west, which is the perfect orientation to see the sun setting and capture that incredible golden hour light which makes all the trees and fields sparkle.

“Our long lunches will always be our signature experience where Chef Ally’s talent absolutely shines, but we can’t wait to welcome people onto the terrace to enjoy a casual sundowner.”

Walk ins are welcome, but bookings are encouraged, so you don’t miss out on this amazing experience.

It is located at 76 Booyong Road, Nashua and bookings can be made for either the long lunches or Summer Sundowners at restaurant@fridasfield.com

Hold a garage sale this Second Hand Saturday!

Residents are gearing up for another fantastic day of Second Hand Saturday garage sales to promote reuse across our region.

Hold a garage sale this Second Hand Saturday!

 

ADVITORIAL

Second Hand Saturday – the North Coast’s biggest day of garage sales is back again and registrations to hold a garage sale are now open.

Over this month, Northern Rivers Council’s together with North East Waste, are hosting a series of free workshops for Buy Nothing New Month, to encourage reuse and repair over landfill. This year, Second Hand Saturday will conclude these celebrations and be held on one date only – Saturday 4 November.

Linda Tohver from North East Waste is inviting people to get involved in this year’s event, held across the Council areas of Tweed, Byron, Ballina, Kyogle, Richmond Valley, Lismore and the Clarence Valley.

“With millions of tonnes of waste being sent to landfill by Australian households every year, the humble garage sale is one of the easiest ways we can reduce the amount of ‘stuff’ ending up in landfill,” Linda said.

Selling pre-loved goods and buying second hand is a great way to keep items circulating within our community, especially when many of us are looking at options to reduce the cost of living.”

Residents who register for Second Hand Saturday will once again have the option of holding their own garage sale, or to organise a joint sale with family and friends.

“We always encourage people to join forces with their local community to attract more attention – get your neighbours involved and hold a street sale, run a fundraiser or collate your efforts at your local club, school or church.  That’s just one of our tips for the day to get the crowds to your sale!” Linda said.

This year all registered garage sale addresses will appear in local newspapers, with full details listed on the Second Hand Saturday website. All you need to do is register online at www.secondhandsaturday.com.au before 25 October to ensure your address will be printed in your local newspaper. Alternatively, as listings go live after the registration process is complete, you can still register up until the 3 November, for a web-only listing.

For more information, visit the Second Hand Saturday website www.secondhandsaturday.com.au, follow the mysecondhandsaturday Facebook page or contact your local Council.

Tide turning on responsible dog ownership in Byron Shire

 

Ten months on from the launch of Council’s Dogs in Public Spaces strategy, increased enforcement and more education and signage is helping people to do the right thing when they’re out and about with their dogs and at our Shire’s dog beaches and foreshore areas.

“We still have plenty of work to do but I am pleased to report our rangers are starting to see shifting behaviours and greater awareness about dogs in our public spaces,” Council’s Manager Public and Environmental Services, Sarah Nagel, said.

Between March and May this year, Animal Enforcement Officers issued 53 percent more animal-related fines than between the same dates in 2022.

“Our fines are up because we’ve been rotating shifts for our staff to actively patrol hot spots, dog prohibited areas and dog exercise areas at different times throughout the day – on foot and in cars,” Ms Nagel said.

“Whilst we cannot be everywhere at once, our approach is to ensure our patrols include an element of surprise.

“Dog owners are surprised to see us early in the morning or late in the evening and it’s a good opportunity for us to get our messages out to a wider cross-section of the community,” she said.

increased enforcement and more education and signage is helping people to do the right thing in regards to dog ownership in Byron Shire.

Council also recently installed footpath stencils in Byron Bay, Brunswick Heads, Ocean Shores, Bangalow and Mullumbimby to increase awareness, with more coming in other locations around the Shire.

“The footpath stencils are easy for everyone to understand including visitors who are here with their dogs,” Ms Nagel said.

It’s encouraging more involvement from the whole community who are calling out bad behaviours.

“We have also been busy on the education front with our dedicated Animal Education and Enforcement Officer doing a great job through the school education program,” she said.

“It’s pleasing to see positive results and shifting behaviours in this first important year of our 10-year strategy; however, the most vital part is that dog owners must be responsible” she said.
