The Grafton region is a beautiful place


The city of Grafton/South Grafton is an undiscovered jewel in the North Coast.

I have heard travellers say that they were unaware that there was a city beyond their view of the highway as they passed through. 

Our entry point does not showcase the treasures that lie beyond.

We don’t have much curb and guttering, nor footpaths, but what we do have is people who take pride in the place they call home.

Well done all of you who take care of your homes, gardens and town.

We also have a band of volunteers that clean up in their own time. Thank you to you all.

So, why am I confused?

Every day a fresh crop of cigarette butts, take away packaging, alcohol and assorted bottles (some of which have been smashed on the roads); cans and assorted crud are dropped around our town! I’m baffled! What kind of thinking allows people to justify this filthy, selfish behaviour?

Who are these grots? Just saying!

… 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.
