The Channon Craft Market

The Channon Craft Market

The Channon Craft Market is a non profit community group, celebrating 41 years of economic and social development in the region, supporting 100′s of creators, artisans and producers to showcase their wares whilst growing the community, venue and management.
2017 saw the regions of the East Coast be exposed to 100′s of ml of rain. These floods affected the grounds and financially impacted the markets viability. The community will join forces to raise additional funds to contribute with Lismore City Council to repair the grounds. Please give generously to the volunteers on the gates and in the kitchen. This work is imperative to continue the journey of the markets. 41 year strong!

 

Dunoon Rural Fire Brigade

Dunoon Rural Fire Brigade

The Dunoon rural Fire Brigade is one of 16 brigades that service the Lismore Rural Fire District. Being a neighbouring brigade to The Channon we often assist each other attending bushfires, village structural fires,
as well as motor vehicle accidents, flood rescue and storm damage clean up. We also assist farmers with controlled burn-offs during the year to reduce the risk of bushfires in the summer months.

Our brigade consists of volunteer men and women from the local community who are on call 24 hours a day to respond to any incident. All are certified to a state wide standard and are continually training to upgrade their skills.
Over the last few years several of our members have assisted other agencies fighting fires in Victoria and South Australia as well as attending many major fires across New South Wales, most recently the Sydney/Blue Mountains fires last October.We do all our own fundraising to purchase and maintain additional essential equipment to make our unit as proficient as possible. Any donation will be greatly appreciated.
