About the listing
Derrinallum Township is very fortunate in that we own a community building in the Main Street service road, shopping strip which houses our Community Op Shop as well as the Derrinallum Information and Services Centre (DISC) Office. These services are staffed by volunteers.
The Derrinallum Community Op Shop is a great asset for the entire community.
The shop is spacious, light filled and open, with lots of comments from passers-by on how inviting and well-presented it is.
From much appreciated donated goods, we are able to stock from the basic to the quirky, including all clothing, footwear, linen, kitchen ware, bric-a-brac, and jewellery and furniture items.
On Fridays we have locally cooked fresh cakes, slices, biscuits and jams, with fresh eggs and lemons always available, which is a great drawcard.
Proceeds from our Op Shop takings are distributed throughout the Derri and Lismore community groups, via written Applications. Eg. Lismore Swimming Pool, Derri and Lismore Cemeteries, Family Day Care, Football Club etc. etc.
The Derrinallum Information and Services Centre (DISC) Office offers many services one of which is a Centrelink computer and phone access point for reporting and/or faxing documents.
Also from here, volunteers produce the local fortnightly newsletter – News and Natter.
It is also an access point for local and tourist information.
There is Internet and Secretarial/photocopying available.
