Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 29 June 2022

Agenda Item #5 Matters of Public Interest

A new women’s Australian skydiving record has been verified by Australian Parachute Federation (APF).  Nineteen women built a star formation at Skydive Ramblers in Toogoolawah on Sunday 12th June 2022.  This broke the previous record of sixteen, set in 2021 at Skydive Nagambie.

The Lowood Community Action Group received a grant from Somerset Regional Council to do murals for resilience and the fires that ravaged our Region in 2019, to depict the rebirth of country, coming back from the fires. Many thanks to brothers Malcom and Kerry Nicholson for doing an amazing job, we look forward to the completed project located at Lowood.

Congratulations once again to Valley of the Lakes Garden Club and the absolutely fantastic Esk Garden and Lifestyle Fair which the club organises each year.   It is great to see that post COVID, thousands of spectators attended the fair which housed around 83 exhibitors, guest speakers, lots of food and coffee, and tremendous weather.  The gates opened at 8:00am and was immediately busy with cheerful fair lovers making a gold coin donation to enter the fair.

The Kilcoy Lions Change Over Dinner was a pleasing evening with fun challenges, a lovely home-made meal provided by the Kilcoy Golf Club committee, and warm fellowship.  Congratulations to the outgoing executive and a warm welcome to the incoming executive.

The National General Assembly provided delegates with important information and decisions reached by Local Government of our great country.  It is a time to network and to discuss and understand the complexities of the third tier of government.  All councils look forward to supporting various motions as adopted by the Australian Local Government Association.  I appreciate the opportunity to attend this annual national conference.

Councillor Cheryl Gaedtke for a strong Somerset Region

I believe in open communication, active listening and a common sense approach, always.

Meet the Canditates Night - Toogoolawah. I really value questions from the floor and the opportunity presented for residents to share their concerns. It is here that you become very aware of what is important at the grassroots level. Some concerns are more the responsibility of the State Government, however those wishing to represent us for the next 4 years must be aware and respond in the very best way, whether through collaboration or by other strategies. I was very impressed by the number of residents who were using pen & paper to record their preferences. With such a diverse and educated group of candidates, attending these nights are so important on a very individual level of understanding and association. ... See MoreSee Less
