    COMPLETED WORKS

    ‘Thirst for Legacy’ – CMC Community Spirit in Nimbin
    In a heart warming display of community spirit, the CMC team involved in the Nimbin Road project recently rallied together to support the Nimbin Bowling Club. Their initiative involved recycling cans and bottles collected from their work site, with the proceeds earmarked for a noble cause: funding the installation of a BBQ area at the club. CMC head office joined in on the idea, matching the money the team raised. The Nimbin Bowlo is a non-for-profit establishment, mostly managed by dedicated volunteers, so they were very appreciative of the kind gesture. Last month the dedicated team volunteered to lay down the concrete slab. Soon other organisations came to the party with Holcim Concrete Lismore providing a discount on the concrete to fit into the budget and Nimbin Hardware donating two sheets of mesh. Additionally, several locals donated their time along with the CMC staff to place and finish the slab. CMC donated labour and supervision, as you can see from the photos many locals also provided supervision of their own. This act of gratitude was CMC’s way of expressing appreciation to the local community for their unwavering support during the team’s time in our region. Their commitment to both the project and the community exemplifies the positive impact that collaborative efforts can have. LCC would like to thank the project team for their generosity and community-minded approach!
