Clarence Valley Independent

Grafton Bridge Medallion

The South Grafton Progress Association (SGPA) was formed in 1886 and is comprised of a mixture of local business people and the general community working towards the development of both community facilities and economic growth for the area.

SGPA has been involved in an exciting project to commemorate the opening of the new Grafton Bridge.  A medallion depicting both the old and new bridges with their opening year on each side on a lanyard, printed with gold sponsors names will be available for purchase over the coming weeks.  Stockists include The Shop 172 Ryan Street; Liberty Service Station Ryan Street and Buckley’s Music 95 Prince Street next to the Saraton.

A brochure detailing the history of the old bridge as well as the planning and construction of the new bridge will accompany the medallion, making it a great keepsake for the future.

Sponsors involved in helping to assist this project financially are Ray Donovan Stock & Station Agent, Clarence Valley Sheds, Anytime Fitness, J Notaras & Sons, McLennan Earthmoving, CDA Eastland Trade Supplies, The Battery Barn, Willis Joinery, Lormac Transport, Cover Grafton and B&S Kitchens.

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
