Autumn Scene soon to be seen

Emma Pritchard


Autumn has arrived, and so has the deadline for our upcoming edition of Scene.

As with many previous editions of the popular quarterly magazine, we remain strongly focused on celebrating and sharing the inspirational stories emerging from the Clarence Valley community with our readers.

In our Autumn Scene for 2024, we catch up with Yamba resident Elizabeth Birch, who after a decorated nursing career, has become the VIEW (Voice, Interests and Education of Women) Clubs of Australia National President.

We’ll also explore the history and motivation behind the establishment of Aussie Hay Runners, the grassroots charity run by a dedicated group of volunteers who transport donated feed to assist NSW primary producers and hobby farmers who have been adversely affected by extreme weather events in recent years.

Since 2022, Aussie Hay Runners have visited the Clarence Valley three times, and have made significant contributions to provide relief for local farmers.

We speak with one of the co-founders of Aussie Hay Runners Linda Widdup and gain an insight into the truly remarkable operation she is proud to be associated with.

There is also plenty of entertainment news to share.

Legendary Australian singer and songwriter Ross Wilson, well known for his role as lead vocalist in iconic band Daddy Cool, will be performing at the Bowlo Sports and Leisure Yamba on April 28, and the wonderful talents of established musicians Melissa Buchholz and Meg Kiddle, along with Lower Clarence rising star Maneesha Davis, will light up the stage at the Saraton Theatre in Grafton on April 7.

Our Autumn Scene for 2024 is scheduled to be released in early April.

Copies can be picked up from the same locations as the Clarence Valley Independent.
