NEWS ANGLE: WSL surfer and local Evans Head lad, Callum Robson, will be competing in the 8 foot division and will be visiting on the Sunday to sign autographs and have a chat to all the young surf grommets. Callum was a junior longboarder in the Evans Head Malibu Club in his early teens before he took up shortboarding and went on to carve himself a career on the world surfing stage. We are very excited to have Callum home. He’s certainly a great inspiration for the next generation of surfers.
This year’s event will be dedicated to two of our former club legends who have recently passed away, Harry Hann and Phil Roxburgh. Both of whom were Malibu Classic event co-ordinators for 20 years.
The four-day format will include divisions from the exciting 8 footers (highly maneuverable 8-foot boards) to the Old Mal (using pre 1968 boards) and loggers – a new wave of stylish young surfers who have sparked a revival of traditional boardriding involving long nose rides incorporated into their smooth, flowing style – usually climaxing with some hair-raising maneuvers in the shorebreak.
The 31st Annual Evans Head Malibu Classic is traditionally known as the longboard event that kicks off the summer. We are set to have a great weekend in the spirit of aloha, celebrating what we love best.
FUN FEATURE: The Fleas and Ants events for the 6 to 12 year old kids on Sunday morning is one of the weekends highlights and it’s not uncommon to see a few tears of joy flowing from the faces of proud family members on the beach.
Sponsors: We would sincerely like to thank the Evans Head Bowling Club, thank you to the Richmond Valley Council for its support through the Events Funding Scheme, Reflections Holiday Parks, Ben Moss Tiling, Cruz Family Office, Thyme Lifestyle Resort Evans Head, Elders Real Estate, Onfire Surfboards, Free Flight Surfboards, Munro Surfboards, Burford Blanks, J&J Southon Sound, PMD Screenprinting, Huey’s Choice Surfboard Wax, Summerland Roofing, Samantha Wilson Real Estate, Muzza’s Milk Bar and Metcalf Meats.

WILLIAMSON RENEWS CALLS FOR RIVER DREDGING

WILLIAMSON RENEWS CALLS FOR RIVER DREDGING

 

State Nationals MP for Clarence Richie Williamson has renewed calls in the NSW Parliament for the Minns Labor Government to implement a 10-year dredging strategy for the Clarence and Evans rivers, similar to plans the Government has put in place to dredge Swansea Channel in the Lake Macquarie region to improve navigation and provide improved access.

Mr Williamson recently moved a motion in the NSW Parliament calling on the Minns Labor Government to develop a long-term dredging plan for both the Clarence and Evans rivers systems.

“In river communities like ours, continual maintenance of rivers like the Clarence and Evans rivers is essential on many levels, including environmental, economic and recreational,” Mr Williamson said.

“These rivers are the lifeblood of communities that live along them, and it is evident that dredging is required to keep them in optimum health.

“The Yamba and Evans boat harbours are home to a commercial fishing fleet, a booming recreational fishing and boating enthusiasts and a significant maritime sector, including Marine Rescue. Hundreds and hundreds of jobs could be at risk if action isn’t taken.”

Mr Williamson said in addition, the continuing silting up of the river’s ecosystem increases the risk of flooding in terms of river height and flow rates.

“I will work with the NSW Government to get these very important projects underway, which will benefit the entire community,” Mr Williamson concluded.

“There are certain people who are part of my heart”

“There are certain people who are part of my heart”

 

By Samantha Elley

For the last 40 years, patients and staff of the Evans Head Medical Centre have had the pleasure of dealing with Marion Smith, but that came to an end last Monday week when she finally retired from a job she never expected to have.

“I took my baby to the doctor when he was nine months old,” Said Marion Smith.

“And they offered the job to me.

“I wasn’t looking for a job and they were the days that Paul Walsh and Ernie Finberg were the doctors and Lorraine Aleckson was there. We are now lifelong friends.”

That baby, Brock, is now 40 years old and Marion has done reception, practice management and dealing with the many people who have walked through the doors of the small village practice over that time.

“And it’s become a generational thing,” she said.

“The people that were little people when I started, they have brought in their babies and they treat you like their aunty.

“It’s just the most beautiful feeling.”

Marion said she has been through the tragedies and joys with many of the clients to the practice, and while others would shy away from such emotion, she takes a different view.

“It’s a real privilege to be part of someone’s terrible sorrow,” she said.

“For them to share it with you.”

Being part of the community has been a great joy for Marion as well, as people share their lives with her.

“It’s like an extended family,” she said.

“There are certain people who are part of my heart.”

One of the biggest changes Marion has seen over her time at the practice has been the growth of the town.

The need for new doctors to attend to the increasing population, meant that she had to help source doctors from further afield.

“I negotiated with people in America to bring the doctors over,” she said.

“Female doctors in our little town. That was a big change.”

Covid was a tumultuous time for the practice as well.

“Covid was scary,” Marion said.

“You really had to think about going to work, as I’m an asthmatic so I really got a bit (worried).

“Then I thought, it’s important because if we don’t come…it’s very hard when you can’t cuddle people, when they walk up to the counter and they are in tears.”

Then there was the patient who was a cat.

“At one stage I had a patient come around the back door with their cat for the doctor to try and save,” laughed Marion.

“There was no vet back then.

“Poor Dr Walsh tried to stitch the cat up.”

Marion’s lasting memories will be the many patients and staff she has worked with, but she is also looking forward to time with her family and indulging in her hobby of house decorating.

“I get to go home,” she said.

“In all my lifetime I’ve never had time at home.

“I’ve worked the whole time and now I get to enjoy my family.”
