Four things to do this weekend

1. More nurses

THE Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation is launching its national campaign on Saturday, May 12 calling for more staff in aged care facilities, with nurses urging staffing ratios to be mandated.

Nurses will meet to discuss the campaign tomorrow at Jack Evans Boat Harbour, Tweed Heads, from 11am.

All welcome.

2. Country music

THE Caldera Country Music Club's next session is on Sunday, May 13 and is shaping up to be yet another huge afternoon at South Tweed Sports Club.

If you wish to sing with a professional band, just bring along three-chorded charts.
