Bello Showground closed for repairs

THE Bellingen Showground has been closed temporarily as council workers undertake urgent repairs.

The site's sewerage pipe system was damaged by the town's two flooding events earlier this year requiring emergency work.

The council's water and sewerage team encountered unforseen difficulty during the works.

Bellingen Shire Council and the Bellingen Showground Trustees are advising the site will be closed to all classes, camping and events while the repairs are ongoing.

The Trust is asking anyone that has booked an event or class to contact Carolyn Joseph on 0409 996423 to see if it will be able to continue.

Work is expected to be completed by May 22
