Rally meetings to inform community
COMMUNITY information sessions on September’s Rally Australia round on the Coffs Coast will begin tomorrow afternoon.
The first meeting will be held at 5.45pm in Bellingen’s Uniting Church Hall at 28 Hyde Street.
This meeting was originally planned for today but was postponed.
There will be two further meetings on Saturday.
These will be at Glenreagh School of Arts in Coramba Street at noon and at the Coffs Harbour Scout Hall in Harbour Drive at 3.30pm.
Three more community information sessions will be held in the Nambucca Valley and Clarence Valley next month.
These will be held at the Macksville Council Chambers at 44 Princess Street at 5.30pm on March 8; at the Nambucca Entertainment Centre in Ridge St in Nambucca Heads at 5.30pm on March 9 and at Christchurch Cathedral at 16 Duke St in Grafton at 5.30pm on March 10.
The sessions are open to all interested people, including residents and business operators.
They are designed to give community members a comprehensive overview of the rally, which will be staged from September 8 to 11 and will run on shire and forestry roads in the Coffs Harbour, Bellingen, Clarence Valley and Nambucca Heads local government areas.
Organisers will also outline the event planning and approvals process and provide an opportunity for community feedback.
Rally Australia’s community engagement manager, well-known Coffs Coast rally driver Martin Quinn, will chair today’s session at Bellingen.
He will also make a presentation on the event, including maps as well as conducting a question and answer session.
