Northern Rivers RSL hall spruced for Anzac Day

SERVICE may have been a little slower at Bunnings Byron Bay last week with four staff out renovating Brunswick Heads Billinudgel RSL Hall in time for Anzac Day.

But no-one in Brunswick was complaining.

The crew from Bunnings painted inside the hall, fixed up the electrical system and put on a new front door before re-painting the outside.

RSL president John McKay said that with a diminishing membership, the RSL appreciated having Bunnings there to help.

“They have all the good gear and expertise at their fingertips,” he said.

“Although we have fewer members, the hall itself is a real community asset used by many other groups.”

Amy Hopkins, activities co-ordinator for Bunnings Byron Bay, said her team relished the opportunity to pitch in.

“Its a treat to get out in the community, and it’s always so well appreciated,” she said.

Community groups looking for support can contact Amy on 6639 5300.
