Celebrate our most precious resource, water

 

Come celebrate our most precious resource, water, at free workshops, screenings and guided tours as part of National Water Week this month.

The City of Coffs Harbour program is designed to connect the community to our local waterways and encourage waterwise practices at home, and in the garden.

National Water Week runs from 16 to 22 October and inspires individuals, communities, and organisations to build awareness around the value of water.  This year’s theme is ‘United by Water’.

“The Bureau of Meteorology has declared that Australia is experiencing an El Niño weather event. We are anticipating hot and dry conditions over the coming months and some North Coast residents are already feeling the impact,” said Director City Infrastructure Andrew Beswick.

“Events like this help us all focus on what we can do to better conserve water every day.”

Can’t make it to an event? Check out the special water-wise flower beds that are being installed in the CBD this Spring.

The flower beds are designed to showcase flower varieties that thrive in our region with minimal water. The plantings are an initiative of the City of Coffs Harbour and Coffs City Centre.

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.
