COREM CROWD-FUNDING LAUNCH – Fri 26th Feb 6.30pm

I am excited to share with you an initiative to get Mullum run by the sun!  A group of hard-working volunteers with great credentials have created COREM – Community Owned Renewable Energy Mullumbimby.

We are half way to reaching our first goal; putting 10 kW solar PV system on the Drill Hall Theatre, Mullumbimby.  A crowd-funding campaign will be launched to raise the balance:

Please come and help us with our vision to get all of Mullum on renewable energy – the panels will be community-owned and we need community support.  All donations are tax deductible and can be made on the night or here; more info on www.planetfunder.org/projects/corem or go to FB page.

;
Surplus energy savings will support the next COREM project, and the next, creating a Revolving Community Energy Fund.

SHENHUA WATERMARK COAL MINE – Liverpool Plains foodbowl and koala habitat

;

;
Conflicting reports in the news; The Guardian reports Land & Env Court ruled koala habitat can be removed for the coalmine whilst the ABC says the coalmine is unlikely to go ahead because their mining exploration licence expires on Monday.   Today The Guardian reports Shenhua have applied to extend the exploration licence which costs nothing, but not applied for the mining licence which costs $200m.

;
NEW BICYCLE LAWS

;

;
New law from March 1st requires cyclists to carry ID – fine for non-compliance is $106 and no helmet fine is now $319.  See ABC article showing Bicycle Licence.

Hope to see you at the COREM crowdfunding launch and movie night next Friday.

Cheers
