Connecting with Kenilworth and surrounds

I recently attended the Kenilworth Arts Council (KAC) AGM and was impressed by all the creative and dedicated work its members produce.

Congratulations to Shirley Moreland on being re-elected as KAC president, which was conducted by former Division 10 Councillor Greg Rogerson. Unfortunately this year’s Kenilworth ArtsFest will not be going ahead, but well done to everyone already working hard behind the scenes for next year’s festival that will be held in October.

I also recently met with Steve and Gwenda from Kenilworth Chamber of Commerce, and discussed the reactivation of the business community post COVID-19. 

Thank you to Lenore who kindly showed me around the Kenilworth Museum. It was wonderful to see the wide range of displays from agricultural equipment to a period bedroom. If you haven’t been I encourage you to stop by for a visit.

It was also great to catch-up with the long-standing Mary River Catchment Coordinating Committee to discover more about the important work they do. Thank you to Ian Mackay for the invitation.

Petition update

I had a productive meeting with the Kenilworth Community Transport Service last month and discussed the petition that was tabled at council. A report regarding the expansion of services and inclusion of trips to Sunshine Coast University Hospital will be presented at council’s July Ordinary Meeting.

Thank you again to everyone who gave feedback on this popular trial service that is currently operating with restrictions due to COVID-19 to protect the health and wellbeing of everyone in our community.
