 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 12 May 2021

 Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

Absolutely fantastic achievement made by our very own amazing Mrs Renee Retschlag.  Renee from Kilcoy has taken the national title at the 2021 Stihl Timbersports Australian Women’s Championship held at St Kilda over the weekend of 8/9 May.  In an incredibly close competition, two ladies tied on 13 points at the end of three Timbersports axe and sawing disciplines. The Champion was awarded on a countback of combined times, which had Renee just under 6 seconds faster than eventual runner-up Jodie Beutel.  Renee narrowly missed out on the title in 2017 and 2018.  Our humble Renee accepted her award with tears streaming down her face.  Well done, Champ!

Huge congratulations are also in order for two Toogoolawah Clay Target Club members, Daryl Stevens for shooting a Grand Slam, and Jorja Pointon for winning the Junior Sportsmanship Award, and to Esk Caravan Park – Winner of the 2020 Gordon Harris Turnaround Award for Caravanning Queensland.

During the prevention month of May, the Queensland Government is calling on the corporate sector and community organisations to pledge their commitment to act against domestic and family violence.  It requires the commitment of government as well as corporate and community leaders to further embed cultural change within our homes, workplaces and communities. The pledge is a way for corporate and community organisations to show their commitment and demonstrate how they will act to end domestic and family violence in Queensland.  Take the pledge | Department of Justice and Attorney-General  Not now, not ever, together.  I’m so pleased that our Council has got right behind this important matter with Mayor Lehmann signing a pledge organised by the Local Government Association Queensland “Not in our backyard” campaign.  By taking the pledge, Somerset Regional Council will support activities to end domestic and family violence in our workplace and our community.

As part of the $2 million state’s Economic Recovery Plan and to attract visitors to farms and help farmers diversify their income, the State Government’s “Taste farm life” agritourism campaign will encourage tourists to get off the beaten track or take a day out of their usual beach holiday destination to discover new experiences in rural and regional Queensland.

Data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics last week showed that in 2020, more than 30,000 people from elsewhere in Australia moved to Queensland – that’s more than 80 people choosing to become Queenslanders every single day.

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
