Many women want exercise that is fun, engaging and unique. Roller derby might be the answer. Northern Rivers Roller Derby launched its league with fanfare on 15 May 15.
If you fancy yourself as a roller derby girl, get down to the Lismore Skate Rink on Thursdays from 6pm. A group of 50 women is learning derby skills each week for $10 entry?
Designed to invoke thought and action in young people about social justice and human rights, a program for senior high school students, Everybody’s Business: Human Rights and Social Justice in C21st will be held Monday, June 7 at Southern Cross University.
