Bumper summer in Brunswick

With Christmas upon us and the holiday mood starting to take over, it's timely to check out what's on, and what's coming up around the shire. The Brunswick Heads sum- mer carnival is operating in Banner Park with the Macgre- gor Family Carnival and rides and the nightly housie tent operated by the Rotary and Lions Clubs also in full swing there. They provide not only the housie games but also the

Pick-a-Prize competition. Proceeds from all the club activities go to community aged care projects. These are traditional sum- mer attractions at Brunswick Heads and continue to provide happy diversions for holiday- ing families who have been coming for generations. The highlight of the sum- mer holiday season at Bruns- wick is the annual wood chopping carnival, one of the biggest outside metropolitan

areas. It attracts axemen from around the world. The carnival will begin on January 8 with a spectacular fireworks display. Parking will be at a premi- um and Byron Shire Council has granted permission for the Mullumbimby Scouts to manage car parking in Memo- rial Park. Gold coin donations for the service will go to- wards a new roof for the Scout Hall.
