Community Transport Service expansion

I’m very pleased to share that at last month’s (October) Ordinary Meeting council gave the green light to expand the Kenilworth Community Transport Service.

The service was previously available only to residents living within a 6.5km radius of the Kenilworth Post Office and provided transport to Nambour, Maleny, Mapleton, Eumundi and Yandina for a flat fee of $8 one-way or return. 

At the request of the community, a submission was put to council to broaden the catchment area of the service and include the Sunshine Coast University Hospital as an approved destination.

Residents of neighbouring Kenilworth localities, including Belli Park, Cambroon, Conondale, Coolabine, Eerwah Vale, Gheerulla, Kidaman Creek and Obi Obi will now able to access the service. This is a great win for the community.

To register this service please visit the Kenilworth Information Centre at 9 Elizabeth Street, or phone 5446 0122.

Moooving on up

Congratulations to Kenilworth Dairies who now have their own bottled milk, which is on shelves of local IGAs and independent stores all over the Sunshine Coast.

Their COVID-19 pandemic story is very inspirational. At the height of the pandemic they underwent major procedure changes, upped their hygiene standards and unfortunately had to temporarily close their café and halt their cheese tastings, all while trying to avoid job losses. Fast-forward to now and they’ve bounced back and now produce their own bottled milk, which has been on shelves for three months.

Supporting local business is crucial to our community. Well done Kenilworth Dairies.
