Agenda Item #38 Councillors’ Report
(Since the last Ordinary Council meeting, I have attended)
28 August Kilcoy & District Progress Alliance monthly meeting
The group discussed the refurbishment of the cricket training nets and the necessary funds required to do so. The group will apply for a community assistance grant for the small balance of funds required. The Yowie Markets are growing and stall holders are very supportive of recent changes.
29 August Kilcoy Showground Reserve Overall Management Committee Meeting
The group discussed and supported in principle the Kilcoy Race Club’s request to erect a section of a training track. Council advised that it is hoping that the showground building project will be completed by the end of November.
30 August St Mary’s Anglican Church Hall Annual Wine, Food & Fun
A night filled with great entertainment, trivia, wine, food and definitely loads of fun. Well done to the organisers.
02 September Women’s Health Expo – Kilcoy Hospital
Once again lots of information and display of current medical apparatus that assists community members to save lives.
04 September Somerset Dam & District Progress Assn. monthly meeting
The committee was still on a natural high after recovering from the very successful “Walk the Wall” weekend held 24/25 August. This group continues to achieve wonderful outcomes.
05 September Brisbane Valley Heritage Trail monthly meeting
There was a frank discussion around the agenda items, with the committee agreeing to write to SRC advising that it does not support the proposal to seal the cycleway (Brisbane Valley Rail Trail) between Fernvale and Pine Mountain.
07 September Show & Shine – Kilcoy Showgrounds – Kilcoy State School
Although this was an inaugural event, and given the very windy and dusty weather the patronage was appreciated. This event has a real capacity to grow.
07 September Mayoral Gala Charity Ball – Esk
Another great evening of entertainment and serious fundraising – well done to all staff involved with the organization of this regional and proud event.
08 September Friends of the Forest Inc. meeting – Moore
A lovely networking afternoon with lots of information and a lovely lunch provided by the venue.
09 September CEO Interviews – Esk
10 September Kilcoy Hospital Auxiliary AGM
Once again, this organisation struggles for membership, however this small group of women achieve excessive financial returns for their major annual fundraising events, benefiting identified needs of the Kilcoy Hospital.
