Lismore residents keen to visit this year's Primex Field Days in Casino can do so without the hassle of driving thanks to the generous support of Richmond Valley Council.
Richmond Valley Council has been providing a free Primex shuttle service for Casino residents since 2017, and following last year's horrendous flooding events decided to extend this service to its Lismore neighbours.
The Lismore service will operate between 9am and 4pm, May 11-13, same as the Casino one, with pick up and return points being the car park at Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre, Wallerawang Drive, the Lismore Shopping Square taxi rank, Brewster Street, and the South Lismore Train Station, Union Street.
Casino pick up and return points are: Casino Information Centre, 84A Centre Street; Casino Post Office, Barker Street; and the Canterbury Street taxi rank.
Pick up and return points and times for both Lismore and Casino can be found on Richmond Valley Council's Facebook page.
RV Council has been supporting the Primex Field Days since its inception in 1985. Support started as in-kind works, such as ground improvements, including drainage, and waste services. This changed in 2013 to become a cash sponsorship of $25,000 per year under a three-year arrangement, and the introduction of a shuttle service in 2017.
The council renewed its sponsorship partnership with Primex this year, which covers the years 2023, 2024 and 2025.
