Well done St Joseph’s! for a Get Ready win
On Friday 18 June Council announced the winner of the Get Ready Sunshine Coast Schools Competition on Facebook.
Congratulations to St Joseph's Primary School Nambour, their winning video was debuted on council’s Facebook page.
Work on a professionally produced version of the video is now getting underway.
The winning team will be mentored by council’s disaster management team and work behind the scenes and in front of the camera to star in council’s 2021 Get Ready media campaign to help our community prepare for disasters.
New park for Nambour
In a fantastic new addition for our green space in Division 10, a new $650,000 park off Howard Street, Nambour, will provide a 1.7 hectare green space for our area.
The parkland will adjoin the existing Quota Memorial Park and add to a network of parklands running through the heart of Nambour.
Stage one works are now underway and will be ready for our community to enjoy by the start of September, weather and site conditions permitting.
This extension of welcoming outdoor creekside recreation space will build on Nambour’s family friendly areas and will be a great addition for existing residents, visitors and new people set to call Nambour home.
Footpaths will connect to Quota Memorial Park and the project will include lush landscaping, more seating and shaded picnic areas for the community to relax in.
Council consulted with the community in 2018 on what they would like to see in the new park and one of the main requests was a dog off-leash area which will be a feature of the new parkland.
Keep an eye on the progress, it’s terrific to see this space continue to be transformed in Nambour.
Sunshine Coast Council endorsed its $816 million budget at its Ordinary Meeting on 24 June. Supporting strong, resilient and connected communities has remained a key priority. For more information visit council’s website.
