2 November 2016 The Talk Around Town is MyCoffs

The first stage of identifying and developing a vision for the future of Coffs Harbour through the MyCoffs Campaign has ended spectacularly with feedback from 1,300 people and social media posts being seen by more than 20,000 locals.

Another aspect of Stage 1 was the art and photography competitions and the winners were presented with their prizes at a special ceremony at Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery this week.

The winners of the ‘Paint MyCoffs’ Art competition - which was sponsored by Opal Cove Resort, the Big Banana, Dolphin Marine Magic and BCC cinemas - were:

  • Preschool - Yr 2 - Jirra Warakulnukroh.

  • Yr 3 - Yr 4 - James Hayes.

  • Yr 5 - Yr 6 - Calen Bilsborough.

  • Yr 7 - Yr 9 - Tamieka King.

  • Yr 10 - Yr 12 - Sara-Lee Spies.

  • Overall Winner - Ben Fayle. Highly Commended – Alice McKeon.

The Meraki Images-sponsored photography competition winner was Rachel Vercoe for her amazing MyCoffs moment of swimming with a sea turtle off the Coffs coast. The nominations and winning entry can be seen on Facebook/mycoffs or via #mycoffs on Instagram.

All entries will be on display at the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery and Harry Bailey Memorial Library until November 30.

The next stage of the MyCoffs Campaign is to ask the wider community to look at the suggestions and issues raised by the feedback already received. This will identify what the priorities should be – where we focus our energy and resource as a community – during the next phase of MyCoffs.

If you haven’t been involved so far, it’s not too late! Bring your ideas to the ‘MyCoffs Big Picture’ event on Sunday, November 13, from 10.45am-2pm at the Coffs Harbour Showground Exhibition Hall.

This lively workshop – with light lunch provided - will give you the chance to share your vision for the best future for our area. Go to mycoffs.org​ to register for your free ticket.
