AFTER a year-long battle with cancer, Arthur Holmes, one of Tweed Shire's most beloved and community minided individuals passed away on Thursday.

Mr Holmes was diagnosed with cancer in August 2011 and spent the last year in and out of hospital.

For many years Mr Holmes was the man behind Murwillumbah's Festival of Performing Arts and took on the position of president of the festival in 1995.

A position he held until 2011 when his illness forced him to step aside.

Mr Holmes' deep love for the festival and its performers was apparent to all who met him and was only a small part of his dedication to the Tweed community and its young residents in particular.

Earlier this year, Mr Holmes received an Order of Australia Award for his service to the performing arts and to the community of Murwillumbah.
