Cr McKay - Fun for the kids at our libraries
  • Thursday 11 December 2014

The good news for mums and dads these summer holidays is that there are more than 80 fun school holiday activities being hosted by Sunshine Coast Council’s libraries starting on Monday, December 15. The activities are free and cater for all ages.

There is everything from Christmas parties and fun craft workshops to a fantastic interactive magic show where children get to meet a real live rabbit - Ms Magic and so much more.

To view the full range of holiday activities and to book a place, head to Council’s library website  or call your local library on 5475 8989.

Well deserved recognition for local business

Congratulations to Maleny Cheese for being recognised as part of the 2014 Queensland Tourism Awards.  They were one of 10 Sunshine Coast tourism operators and organisations awarded at Brisbane’s Royal International Convention Centre on Friday November 28.

Land for Wildlife continues to grow and flourish

And what a successful year it has been for Council’s Land for Wildlife Officers and the Land for Wildlife program. This voluntary conservation program supports landholders as they conserve wildlife and habitats on their properties. The program protects more non-remnant vegetation in the Sunshine Coast local government area than all other tenures combined, including state and council land.

Thanks to the officers’ hard work and dedication, 75 new properties have joined the program in the past 12 months. This is the highest number of new properties for any year, since the program’s inception in 1998.  It is also the highest number for any of the participating Councils in SEQ, accounting for approximately 36% of all new signups for the entire SEQ region in 2014.

Merry Christmas to all

As 2014 comes to a close, I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas and New Year and a prosperous and enjoyable 2015.
