Bellingen meet to discuss issues
STRATEGIES for supporting local people to make positive choices when it comes to alcohol and anti-social behaviour will be explored at a meeting in Bellingen on Tuesday night.
Bellingen and Seaboard Youth Services Councillor Kerry Childs; and the North Coast Area Community Engagement and Action Project Officer for Drug and Alcohol Services Joe Gormley, have organised the meeting which is being supported by the Smarty Party initiative.
The evening will focus on the possibility of establishing a community drug action team and will look at the assets in the community to assist with strategies for action. There will also be discussions about developing a ‘top 3’ action plan and the possibility of forming a smaller working party.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday night (March 30) at Bellingen’s Uniting Church Hall and will start at 7pm.
