No Part-Day Public Holiday for 2022

Following the devastation from the 2 record breaking floods in Lismore, the council decided to forgo the Part-Day Public Holiday for 2022 as the local business community will need a reprieve following 2 years of COVID affected trade as well as the floods. The Lismore Turf Club understands this decision and can appreciate the hardships that all local businesses are going through.
