The Dunoon and District Gazette has made it to the 200th edition! Thank you to all our editors, contributors, advertisers and distributors, past and present for getting us to this milestone.

We looked for someone inspiring for the feature article in this edition, and have found Jex Lopez, a Lismore-based artist with an enormous amount of talent. Enjoy reading about her and her work on pages 14-15.

We welcome a new advertiser – see Peter Dunn’s advertisement on page 7. Please continue to support our existing advertisers who help to bring you the Gazette through their advertising.

School is only just back so no school or pre-school articles this time, with space for a range of other articles and events to fill our pages and enrich your lives. More about the arts with the Richmond Landcare Art Prize on page 4, Lismore Theatre Company news on page 13 and book reviews and suggestions on page 16. Wildlife preservation and Koala habitat restoration make the news on pages 10-11 and 17. Skills workshops through Resilient Lismore and the Dunoon Men’s Shed provide opportunities to work with others and learn new skills – see pages 7 and 9. On a more sober note, we are reminded of what we can do about water-safety by Royal Life Saving on page 8, and given an opportunity to have our say on bus services with Janelle Saffin’s media releases on page 18.

Get fit at Numulgi Hall with classes starting now or join the local art classes which will commence around Easter – see page 6. Church news shares details of how to get involved in these caring communities on pages 20-21. And of course, please support our local Dunoon Sports Club by renewing your membership, enjoying their events and booking at the restaurant – see page 12.

Until next time,

Bronwen Campbell
