Cr Hungerford - Scoring goals at local sports complex
  • Thursday 13 September 2018

It’s all go go go at popular Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex over the coming month.

First up is their pledge to join the campaign to phase out single use plastics at council-managed venues to reduce waste and its environmental impact on our region.

The complex’s local clubs – Sunshine Coast Netball Association, Maroochydore Roos AFC, Maroochy Roos Juniors and Buderim United Soccer – and even their barista from Caffeine Driven, have all come on board to find environmentally friendly alternatives.

For loads of tips and tricks to help you make a difference, visit Living Smart’s website www.livingsmartqld.com.au.

This is all timed perfectly in advance of the national NetFest event coming to the complex from October 4-7, where up to 2,500 participants are expected to enjoy its 20 netball courts – including 10 brand new ones.

Local projects

Council crews have also been busy out and about enhancing and improving our region, with latest local works including the replacement of sections of deteriorated pathway along North Buderim Blvd, Buderim and installation of new lighting along the Melaleuca St footpath between Elkhorn St and the Maroochydore Rd overpass in Kuluin.

Get some traction

What better way for you and the family to try out these new and improved pathways or even go further afield to explore the many fantastic cycling routes across the Coast, than during Sunshine Coast Bike Week from October 13-21.

Or is a lack of confidence stopping you from riding a bike? Whatever your age or skill level, you can sign up for a free cycling workshop to get back on your bike and make the most of our region’s great outdoors. To register, head to council’s website.
