Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 14 October 2020
Category : General News
Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest
I would like to remind community members of the forthcoming Arts Queensland funded arts initiative. On Friday 23rd October “Funny Mummies” a comedy showcase will be performed at the Somerset Civic Centre. Empire Youth Theatre will be based at the Somerset Civic Centre for a six-week residency. Flipside Circus will hold workshops in November.
Congratulations to the Lowood & Fernvale Community Bank Branch for another rewarding 2020 financial year. A total of $33,561.00 was distributed throughout the Somerset region. It has been acknowledged that this amount is representative of the cancellation of many community events due to COVID-19. The branch has provided a massive 6% dividend on shareholder investments and over the ten years, invested $884,040 back into the Somerset region communities.
It is reassuring to learn that Kennedy Air has now positioned their Fire Boss firefighting aircraft to Watts Bridge, ready to support the QFES as required during the forthcoming summer fire season.

This initiative would provide a safe and inviting space for our community members to meet with relevant services.
Congratulations to all newly elected office and zone committee members who have put their hands up for the forthcoming year of the Australian Local Government Women’s Association – Queensland Branch, at their Annual General Meeting.
Residents have expressed their concerns again with the mistreatment of our waterways and environment. This concern particularly relates to Savages Crossing and Twin Bridges areas.
