Volunteers help Falls run smoothly for Brunswick Heads

OVER the New Year period, fifteen volunteers were out and about across Brunswick Head making sure the town was clean, tidy and friendly during the Falls Festival.

Taking Care of Brunswick Heads project coordinator Ollie Heathwood said they were delighted by the number of locals who thanked their volunteers and commented on how clean the town was during this period.

"The team checked for litter every day starting their first run at 7:30 am, and finishing at 4 pm. The volunteers all reported that they enjoyed helping visitors with advice or information, and took great pride in getting every last cigarette butt and ring pull from the parks and dunes," Ollie said.

Ollie found that the partnership between the Brunswick Heads Visitor Information Centre and The Falls Arts and Music festival worked very well.

Volunteers received VIP Passes to the festival for their efforts, and all have asked to be on the team should another project like this take place.

Many of them were parents who gave the VIP passes to their children for Christmas.

Ollie will be running a "Listening Post" on Wednesday January 20 at The Memorial Hall from 4pm-8pm, for any residents that want to come along and discuss how the Falls Festival affected Brunswick Heads.

Anyone with a grievance or concern should come along so that plans can be made to mitigate those issues for future festivals.
