Agenda Item #35 Councillors’ Report

Kilcoy residents and businesses are generally adhering to the health requirements as stipulated under COVID-19. It was evident that campers followed State Government health orders and did not camp over Easter as in previous years, the roads were very quiet and little activity experienced in and around Kilcoy. Metro North and West Morton health authorities have reported that any COVID-19 affected residents in our region are well on to recovery.

Our local gym instructor is using Zoom platform to broadcast her exercise classes over Facebook, with a great response from her membership.

Lastly, I wish to thank voters who cast their votes under such challenging times and I look forward to working as part of the Team Somerset for the next four years and acquiring achievements that will meet with our residents’ and businesses’ needs and future goals and objectives.

179 YEARS AT CRESSBROOK

Today, the McConnel family celebrate 179-years of settlement and custodianship at Cressbrook.

Cressbrook is now run by fifth-generation descendant Christopher McConnel, with his wife Susan and their daughter Caitlin. Their home, the House at Cressbrook, is the oldest residence and third oldest building in Queensland, and they are the oldest identified family business in Queensland.

In the words of Madge McConnel (nee Kent of Jondaryan), wife of second-generation owner of Cressbrook, James Henry McConnel, “the story of Cressbrook would not be complete without reference to old friends, and employees whose memory we value, and whose descendants some of them are still with us or settled near us.”

Madge’s words continue to have relevance today, over 100-years on. Today, Christopher, Susan and Caitlin not only celebrate this historic milestone, but more importantly, it provides an opportunity for them to be grateful for, and to acknowledge the continued support of friends, family and members of the public who hold their story, and the history of agriculture and development in Australia, dear to their hearts.
