 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 9 June 2021

 Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

 I attended the Somerset Art Beat Festival held at The Condensery, Toogoolawah, and what an absolutely fantastic event.  The lovely autumn weather provided approximately 500 guests with a brilliant venue to showcase local art, local entertainment, great food, brilliant tasting coffee and the opportunity to join in with creative workshops.  This festival has a real potential to become a regional event that showcases local talent of all kinds.  The Connecting Stories Art Exhibition completed the ambience of the festival.  The expertise provided by Creative Arts Alliance shone through, and I wish to thank all involved with organising this wonderful festival.

Congratulations to:

  • Toogoolawah State School for organising mural installations on various poles of their buildings. The murals were completed by Street Art Studios and add a lovely atmosphere to the school environment.
  • Exchange Hotel Kilcoy for winning the Awards for Excellence – Best Hotel Bar General Division Regional – Queensland Hotels Association.
  • To the imagination displayed by the middle pub (The Club Hotel) in Toogoolawah – a complete play on words, as newly erected signage recognises renaming the hotel, Peddlars Rest and an internal bar as Handle Bar.
