 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 15 December 2022

Agenda Item #5 Matters of Public Interest

The ABC Drive radio show visited Kilcoy and interviewed various residents.  Markian and Ulana Drevniak who escaped Ukraine along with their children were interviewed.  Other local identities interviewed included Denise Modistach, Sarah Eaton, John McAulay, Donald Walker and Gerald Youles.  Care to listen to the interviews –

Congratulations and many thanks to the Somerset Assist Team, comprising of Lyn Buchanan (President); Julie Hayes (Vice-President & Care Co-Ordinator); Brenda Moloney (Secretary); Ruth O’Dowd (Treasurer).  This very vibrant team is a new community not-for-profit which will offer older Esk and Toogoolawah residents the option for in-home care.  The team have partnered with Trilogy Care, a nationally registered home-care package provider, and Mable a platform connecting people who need support to local people who provide support.  The team also welcome interested workers to make contact to understand how they can provide personal care support.  This is not a volunteering situation.  For further information, call Julie Hayes on 0484 822 485 or email

I came across a very handy Facebook page called The 2 Hour Circle & Beyond.  This page provides interesting information about local tourists’ spots.  The page features interviews and information about visited  Somerset located businesses.  Some of the reviews include feedback such as finding places that you have never heard of; learning the history behind these towns is really interesting; and also supporting local businesses.

A huge shout out to the many months of hard work and pure dedication of the Kilcoy Christmas Carnival committee, who once again provided the highest quality of Christmas entertainment to Kilcoy and District residents. The new carnival site is definitely a winner providing much more room, a flatter and safer area.  The children provided the sweetest Christmas Carols, music and dancing, and we also enjoyed the music provided by the Morayfield State High School Band and a beautiful rendition provided by FIP Fijians singers.  Many thanks to the Mayor for officially opening the carnival.

Congratulations to the Kilcoy QCWA in celebrating its centenary, with the provision of many interesting stalls, Devonshire tea and scones, memorabilia showcase, raffles, music and a very warm welcome to the proceedings.  The President Caryl Cook explained the branch had no plans in slowing down and currently has eighteen members, however will be looking for more members to join in the new year.

I was honoured to proudly present the “George Adsett” Sporting Cup to the winning sports house for 2022 at the Mt Kilcoy State School Awards Ceremony.  The cup is in memory of my Great Grandfather who was the Chair and member of the Mt Kilcoy State School Steering Committee who shared the vision of securing a school for the Mt Kilcoy area.  An area of land was excised from Blunt’s farm to provide the perfect place for the school renowned as the school with an awesome view.  Today the school has around 120 students and provides a very high standard of education to the Mt Kilcoy and surrounding area.

I believe in open communication, active listening and a common sense approach, always.
After 39 years in Local Government, I have enjoyed my journey and understand the importance of Local Government as the grass root level of government.

Welcome to our little town❣️As everyone knows, each Saturday morning Yowie Park is a hive of activity with people participating in the Yowie Park Run. Well last Saturday 13 April the gallery was visited by some British International park runners who apparently flew in Friday to run the Yowie park run on the international circuit! They then visited the gallery and bought one of Noela Lowien's artworks from her Artist of the Month wall! Aptly, it just happened to be her painting of a yowie! Great souvenir to take back to the UK of their visit to Kilcoy, don't you think? ... See MoreSee Less
