I know a lot of families in Peregian Springs will be excited to see the new active play space open and ready for children to use. From my recent door knocking, I know kids are particularly excited for the skate park to be open. I can picture many community and family outings being centred around this space for years to come. With a new skate area, basketball court, netball hoop and barbecue facilities – there is definitely lots of fun to be had! It is looking fantastic!
Free school holiday fun
While council is unable to run its usual school holiday program this winter, we are still able to offer a fun activity at the Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary – just 20 mins drive away. Together you can become nature agents and go on a mission to explore though an augmented reality game on your smart device. Simply download the free Agents of Discovery App. Load the ‘Wetlands Discovery’ mission and head to the wetlands at Sports Road, Bli Bli to begin your challenge. The ‘What’s on’ guide on council’s website has more information.
Libraries now open
If you didn’t already know, our Sunshine Coast libraries have re-opened. The closest library at Coolum will be open from 9am-4pm and only 10 customers at any one time will be allowed into the library to pick up reservations and select and borrow items. Please keep in mind that you’ll only be able to browse and borrow for a maximum of 15 minutes and you may need to queue to comply with national public health directions. Please ensure you continue to practice social distancing, good hygiene and please do not visit if you are feeling unwell.
Environment and Liveability portfolio
In partnership with Cr Peter Cox, I’ve been allocated to the Environment and Liveability portfolio of Council. On top of representing Peregian Springs residents and Division 9, this allows me to be involved with Council proposals, issues and activities relevant to the environment and liveability of the Sunshine Coast, as well as provide input and advice to Council officers on these matters. One project I’m keen to progress is the Blue Heart project.
If you have other suggestions, please contact me on 5475 9810 or firstname.lastname@example.org
