Council provides Coldstream festival with more funding

By Adrian Miller

The 'Surfing the Coldstream' arts fringe festival has received further financial backing with Clarence Valley Council donating $9000 to the event.

Council decided on the funding at an extraordinary meeting of council in Maclean on Tuesday. The money will be allocated from the 2005/06 draft budget estimates and from unallocated funds in the Maclean and Copmanhurst office's donations vote for 2004/05.

Council had considered the matter at the previous meeting, but delayed making a decision until it was given a presentation by the festival's management committee chair, Dom Ferry.

Mr Ferry said the funding from council would add to federal funding of $14,000 the festival had already received by Festivals Australia, one of only 13 successful applicants from NSW. The event will be held in Yamba on October 22-23.
