Meet the members – James Cracknell
What is your business and how did it start?
Our business is Windsong Travel in Bellingen, Sawtell and Inverell, and also Coffs Coast Travel. I started my business firstly in Inverell where I bought it from the owner …. I started in travel in 1990 after being an exchange student in Mexico (I wanted to keep travelling and explore the world).
How has the pandemic affected your business?
The pandemic has devastated our business, we currently have 19 staff on JobKeeper and no business. Also, we are having to refund our income from more than 12 months ago.
What would you like to see the Chamber doing?
I’d love to see the chamber be stronger and be actively involved in the vision of where we want to mould and steer Bellingen in the future
