Casino Food Co‐op launch their inaugural Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

The Casino Food Co‐op is proud to launch their inaugural Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Chairman, John Seccombe said, “this is a significant milestone as we continue to play our role in reconciliation.” The Casino Food Co‐op joins a network of more than 1,100 corporate, government, and not‐for‐profit organizations that have made a formal commitment to
reconciliation through the RAP program.

“Endorsed by Reconciliation Australia on 9th September 2022, our Reflect RAP recognises and acknowledges Australia’s First Peoples and demonstrates our journey to continue to build inclusive
and sustainable relationships which are mutually beneficial,” John Seccombe said.

“To bring our RAP to life we created a RAP working group consisting of Dan Smith, Anne Toohey, Trevor Kenny, Stephen Fergusson, Lisa Walker & Troy Freeburn. We engaged Tracey Piccoli a proud Bundjalung woman and artist from Casino to help tell the story of our reconciliation journey. Tracey is the daughter of Brian Olive, one of our long serving employees here at the Co‐operative. We are delighted with the artwork which we will treasure for years to come as a reminder of our heritage and region”, John said.

The artwork symbolizes many things:

The outer green circle represents everyone’s connection to local Country and the land. The middle red circle represents all people connecting with each other who work at the Co‐op. The orange centre circle represents everyone’s connection to the river. The Platypus represents the centre of our community. Our connection to our totem and to the local community people. The four blue circles signifies that we are all connected.

“Our reconciliation journey to date has been organic, rather than concerted. Committing to a Reflect RAP allows us to be more proactive in our efforts towards reconciliation”, John Seccombe
said. Some of the activities to support & celebrate Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people, as well as internal activities and initiatives of the Co‐op include:

  • Sponsoring of sporting teams, such as Casino RSM Junior rugby league club who has over 35% Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander players.
  • Involvement with Naidoc week and National Reconciliation week.
  •  Partnering with TAFE NSW to develop and implement Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Traineeship’s pathways. Currently we have 50 Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander
    people employed on site.
  •  Onsite mentoring program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This program is about supporting and recognising their needs in an endeavour to keep them employed.

On this reconciliation journey, we will continue to foster an inclusive environment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We will continue to build an inclusive and diverse workforce where everybody’s contribution is valued. We will continue to build respectful and inclusive relationships through our projects and
activities. We will continue to provide our workforce with the skills and knowledge to be culturally responsive to the communities where we live and work.

The launch of this RAP is a very proud moment, and we thank everyone who has worked to bring this together and the many people who will continue to form and nurture important relationships
in the years to come, said John Seccombe.

Upcoming Improvements on McDonalds Bridge Road

Upcoming Improvements on McDonalds Bridge Road

 

Daily users of McDonalds Bridge Road will be pleased to hear that further improvement work is scheduled to commence in August, weather permitting.

An investment of over $2 million will fund the repair of approximately four kilometres of the road. This project will include widening the shoulders from the base of the hill east of Edenville Road to Stratheden Road. Upon completion, the entire width of the road will be resealed.

The scope of the project also includes widening and installing scour rock protection on culverts, setting up guideposts, and cleaning table drains.

Richmond Valley Council‘s General Manager, Vaughan Macdonald, emphasised the Council’s commitment to restoring the local transportation network to meet community expectations.

Mr. Macdonald highlighted that the Council is working collaboratively with the NSW and Australian governments to not only restore but also enhance the road network’s resilience, supported by funding from all three levels of government.

“The safety and efficiency of people and freight movements on our roads are paramount,” said Mr. Macdonald. “The floods of 2022 resulted in a road repair bill exceeding $100 million. Unfortunately, our road network faced additional strain over the past eight months, with record rainfall causing extensive pothole damage.

“While significant progress has been made in restoring our local roads and ensuring their safety and efficiency, Council relies heavily on government funding to repair and upgrade our damaged roads to a more resilient standard.

“Despite these challenges, our capital program acknowledges the crucial role of local roads and infrastructure in building resilient, connected communities and supporting economic growth in the Richmond Valley.”

Casino Truck Show to Auction Custom-Made Bar for Charity

 

The North Coast Petroleum Casino Truck Show organising committee is thrilled to announce the auction of a custom-made bar to raise funds for charity.

Generously donated by Queensland-based Moore Trailers, the 2.4m x 2.4m bar is crafted from steel with mirror stainless ends, designed to resemble the rear end of a trailer. Valued at $6,500, this versatile bar is perfect for entertaining and recreational use.

Enhancing the auction, Engel Australia has contributed a 95-litre upright fridge valued at $1,699, ensuring this auction is a highlight of the event.

The auction will take place on Saturday, 3 August, at the Mafeking Lamp roundabout at 2:45 pm, just before the trophy presentation. The Casino Truck Show extends gratitude to Moore Trailers’ Scott Gollan and Engel Australia’s Jason Dwyer for their support.

For 2024, men’s health charity Movember has been chosen as the Casino Truck Show charity partner. Movember, a leading men’s health organisation, focuses on mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer. Since 2003, Movember has funded over 12,500 projects, engaging more than five million participants worldwide.

In 2023, the Casino Truck Show donated $10,000 to local charities, including the Westpac Rescue Helicopter, Casino Soup Kitchen, and Jumbunna Community Preschool.

Mark your calendars for the 2024 North Coast Petroleum Casino Truck Show, set to take place in the Casino CBD on Saturday, 3 August. This must-attend event for truck enthusiasts will showcase innovation, performance, and community spirit.

The festivities kick off with the street parade at 10 am, followed by the trophy presentation at 3 pm.
