Live and connected
I was pleased to be part of the Sunshine Coast Solar Farm’s official ‘plugging in’ on Monday July 24. As the divisional councillor, it was an exciting moment to be part of the launch of this region’s first solar farm. After many years of challenging work it’s great to say we have succeeded in delivering this sustainable infrastructure for our community.
This year’s Horizon Festival promises to be an outstanding arts and culture event. A particular highlight for local residents will be the Dawn Awakening Ceremony on Sunday September 3. This event honours First Nations People through music, dance and song. It’s a fabulous insight into Indigenous culture of the area. The festival runs from August 25 to September 3. Head to horizonfestival.com.au for details.
