At the Kilcoy District Progress Alliance Inc. May meeting, a discussion took place around the upgrading of the cricket training nets located at Hopetoun Playing Fields.  The local players who use the nets for training will work through their parent club Wamuran Stanley River Cricket Club to achieve a successful outcome.  The group is awaiting the outcome of a recent grant application and cricket families are asked to provide evidence of support in readiness for grant outcomes.  The group may then reapply for funding through council.  

I wish to thank our Mayor, our CEO, Nick Fredriksen and Ian Badman (Kilcoy District Historical Society) for sharing an open, honest and respectful meeting presence whilst discussing community expectation of the Sheep Station Creek School project.  

SEQWater was represented at the General Meeting of the Somerset Dam & District Progress Assn., and a discussion was held around proposed legacy projects provided by SEQWater to the Somerset Dam Village during the proposed works at the Somerset Dam wall. In spite of the cool and damp weather, the Toogoolawah Show and Ramblers 40th Anniversary was successfully held.  I look forward to future successful events of both these popular groups.  Whilst visiting Ramblers, I met many long-term members of this club, and I noticed the overall improvements made during its life of 40 years.  Congratulations to all involved and especially Dave McEvoy for bringing his dreams to fruition.
