Congratulations to two Esk businesses who have been awarded for their efforts. The Esk Grand Hotel was acknowledged (4 June) as Best Pub 2020 by river 94.9FM Honour Roll. The Esk Caravan Park & Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Motel were thrilled to announce that it won the coveted 2020 Gordon Harris Turnaround Award. The Gordon Harris Turnaround Award recognises a caravan park operator that has made significant changes to their business to effectively “turn it around”.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) has advised that at the time of the November 8 (2019) Jimna fires, a firebreak was constructed around Jimna, and the cleared vegetation stacked in piles. On Tuesday 23 June, the piles were burned off, one by one. Residents were encouraged to chat to a local brigade member or volunteer community educator by visiting the Jimna Public Hall. QFES, in conjunction with other key stakeholders will develop hazard mitigation plans.

Thank goodness for social platforms that provide a safe and easy method to hold meetings remotely, and can cater for up to 60 plus members. However, I look forward to when it is permissible to attend community meetings and community events once again. I am missing the interaction with our community members and enjoying events that proudly showcase our region.
