Cr OPray big year of sport awaits
  • Wednesday 14 February 2018

Well I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year break and are ready and raring to go for 2018 !

There’s plenty to get excited about this year – especially if you love sport and getting out and about to great local events.

We’ve got AFL clubs here right now for pre-season training, we’ve got the big feast of NRL and Super Rugby matches coming up at Sunshine Coast Stadium in February and then we’re getting a visit from more than 500 Commonwealth Games athletes and officials as they prepare for the main event on the Gold Coast in April.

Our premiership winning Sunshine Coast Lightning Netballers are gearing up for their title defence (have you got a season membership yet?) and a women’s 12s Rugby Union series will kick off for the first time in March! In the famous words of Bill Lawry – It’s all happening here!

Major Community and Environment Levy Grants

The Community and Environment Levy Grants Program offers funding to not-for-profit community organisations for projects that benefit the Sunshine Coast community.

Major Grants (all categories), Minor Grants (Event category only) and Environment Levy Grants open Monday, 29 January 2018 and close Monday, 12 March 2018.

Attend a free grant information session during February to find out more or visit council’s website.

Lovin’ the Sunshine Coast!
