School intersection upgrade in Beerwah
We’ve been pushing for quite a while so it’s good to see the announcement of road works by the Department of Transport and Main Roads in response to the Palaszcsuk Government election commitment to signalise the intersection of Old Gympie Road and Peachester Road, near the Beerwah State School. This upgrade includes new traffic lights and slip lanes to allow a safe commute around the school, reducing safety issues for parents at pick-up and drop-off times.
Christmas at the Glasshouse Country Community Carols
The countdown to Christmas is on and there’s no better way to get yourself more connected to your community while absorbing the Christmas spirit than to attend the Glasshouse Country Community Carols! With two to three thousand people expected on Saturday December 15, the new organisers are preparing the event with a big stage, great sound and an exciting, brand new program. Entertainment will be in full swing from 4.30pm, including performances by local dance groups, bands and soloists. There will be rides, food, an animal farm, a jumping castle and lots more. From 6.30pm, two choirs will join carolers singing some of the all-time Christmas classics before fireworks bring this special evening to a close. I encourage families to bring blankets or picnic chairs and spread themselves out ready to singalong and gaze up at the sky. Parking is available, but why not travel by train to Beerwah station and walk the short distance to the event. For more details, visit Glasshouse Country Community Carols Facebook page.
I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely wish all residents of Division 1 an absolutely fantastic holiday, good health and my very best wishes for the New Year!
