Yamba festival on Sean's horizon
SEAN Riley is counting down the days until the Yamba festival.
The Palmers Island resident said he thought it would be a great event for locals, visitors and their families.
“I will be taking my wife and my two boys, Hayden and Darcy, to the Yamba Festival,” he said.
“I’ll definitely be coming to watch The Blue Earls, it’s the band to see.”
After moving to the Clarence Valley in 1984, Mr Riley said although he had moved away twice, he keeps coming back.
“I know a lot of people here and it’s a good environment,” he said.
Taking a smoko break from his trade as a painter, Mr Riley said the Clarence Valley was a perfect place to bring up a family.
“It’s a nice and quiet family-friendly environment, it’s really good for the kids,” he said.
A surfer, Mr Riley said board riders of the region were blessed with the beaches and conditions found in the Clarence.
“We have usually got good waves around.”
