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.

Councillor Cheryl Gaedtke for a strong Somerset Region
Over the past three days, I met Mayors, Councillors, Council staff from all states and territories of our great country.Equality with sharing the fiscal revenue pie with other levels of government is strongly supported by research and hard cold stats. Local Government and its services must be recognised and the associated increase in funding applied.The housing crisis, natural disaster management and future planning, climate change, energy resources and future needs, constitutional recognition of First Nations peoples, democracy today, the Ukraine war, were only some of the thought provoking presentations. Many discussions took place about important matters and what Local Gov needs to do to assist.I was completely captivated by Stan Grant and his keynote address around global democracy. Thought provoking!! I will definitely be rewatching the video of this presentation.The Ukraine's Ambassador, Vasyl Myroshnychenko's address brought tears to our eyes. A special (and supportive) motion about this horrific conflict was raised and passed by ALGA. Australian councils have shown their support for Ukraine today, unanimously passing a motion of peace-seeking solidarity at the 2022 National General Assembly (NGA) of Local Government in Canberra. ...
