Coffs Harbour and District Land Council invites you to the Aboriginal Community Christmas Party
The recent fires have had a huge impact on the region including our business community. A big thanks to all those who kicked the can at our various events this year we managed to raise $727 towards the Red Cross Fire Recovery throughout NSW. For those businesses affected by fire be sure to complete the NSW Small Business Commissioner’s Survey, which will be used to determine where support can be best directed. You can complete the Survey & find out where you can get support HERE.
The team at the Coffs Coast College inc. and the Coffs Coast Alesco School would like to wish you Season Greetings as well as a happy and safe holiday to you all. Thank you for all the support for 2019 and looking forward to an amazing 2020.

NEW ‘SHISHA NO THANKS’ CAMPAIGN ENCOURAGES COMMUNITIES TO KNOW THE HARMS OF SHISHA SMOKING
The state’s Chief Cancer Officer today launched the new campaign ‘Shisha No Thanks’ urging communities to be aware of the harms of smoking shisha, also known as water-pipe.
Chief Cancer Officer and CEO of the Cancer Institute NSW, Professor David Currow said it was important for people to understand smoking shisha is as dangerous to a person’s health as smoking cigarettes.
“A person who smokes shisha is at risk of the same health problems that a person who smokes cigarettes faces, including cancer and respiratory illness. A typical 45 minute long waterpipe smoking session involves inhaling as much smoke as 100 cigarettes.
Even if the shisha does not contain tobacco, it is not safe to smoke. While these products, also called ‘herbal shisha’, may not contain the nicotine in tobacco, the smoke contains highly toxic substances. The addition of fruit flavouring and sweeteners does not reduce the harmful effects of the smoke.
Smoking remains the largest cause of preventable death and disease in NSW.
People who smoke shisha can get support to quit by calling the Quitline on 13 7848 or visiting icanquit.com.au.
We really need a bunch of services to jump on board for this afternoon we have planned on Friday 22nd November
for young people from a refugee background. More information and purpose of the event
is contained in the Registration Form. One of the main goals is to link this vulnerable and high risk population
to local youth support services. headspace Coffs, STARTTS, SSI and North Coast Settlement Services have been working together
with schools and a committee of young people and we really need your support to make it a great success.
If you can be there with a stall to provide some information and/or activities please return your registration form to me by 18th November.
We’ll be set up around the front of the stage area on the day, so access will be via entrance A on the map.
Vehicles will have to be off site by 12:30pm on the day.
