Backyard Blitz Shows Community Spirit Is Alive and Well in Coffs

Article excerpt

TO ALL the people who have volunteered to do a backyard blitz on my mum's yards.

We are so overwhelmed by the response we have had and to the local businesses who also have decided to donate time or donate in another way.

What a wonderful community spirit we have in Coffs Harbour.

TO the Bunker Cartoon Gallery and its volunteers.

Another great awards night with terrific cartoons on display from some of the country's best.

Keep up the good work ladies, and I cannot wait until your next one on December 5, same time and same place.
