Alison's full of great new ideas

SHE was the driving force behind the Coffs Coast’s stunningly successful Saltwater Freshwater Festival and Alison Page has plenty more great ideas in store.

As one of the best-known faces on the ABC’s The New Inventors, this talented designer loves nothing more than making new discoveries of her own.

Her design company is involved in everything from sculpture to buildings and when she’s not doing overseeing those projects, she’s a leading advocate for Aboriginal issues and culture on the Mid North Coast.

The young mum and super-energetic Coffs Coast local is the feature of Friday’s Great Local Yarn – only in The Advocate.
