Footy Show coming to Lennox

A TORNADO last week brought Lennox Head to a standstill; on Thursday night The Footy Show will bring the town to life.

Fatty, Sterlo, Vossy and The Falcon will all be on hand to lift the spirit of the town from the balcony of the Lennox Point Hotel.

The race is on to clear the area that became a base for emergency services after the storm, with Channel Nine coming to town.

From 6.30pm Thursday, for two hours, everyone can forget the dramas and have a laugh.

Byron Street and Pacific Parade will be closed and the adjoining park will come to life as the overlooking Footy Show panel pre-records the show to go to air later that night.

Everyone is encouraged to come along with a blanket and participate in the filming of the Logie award-winning show from 5pm before heading home to catch the screening at 9.30pm.

Those who live nearby are advised to walk to the hotel because road access will be slow and extremely limited.

Marquees and sectioned areas will be set up especially for victims of the tornado and the volunteer services.

They will be clearly marked and, to avoid bedlam and facilitate the process, people are asked to respect the boundaries.
