Master Builders Awards
I was lucky enough to attend the Master Builders 2016 Sunshine Coast Housing and Construction Awards. This exciting event recognises our region’s leading builders and projects throughout and it was certainly a night to remember. There were so many outstanding builders and amazing projects nominated and it was clear to see during the awards ceremony that attendees were so proud of the work they had achieved. On a special note, two Bli Bli projects received awards – the Maroochy River Golf Club building and the Halycon Landing lifestyle community which were both constructed by Ausmar Homes.
Launching the Job Show
The launch of the second annual Sunshine Coast JobShow was a terrific event and I’m proud to be involved with helping locals gain employment. The initiative is presented by Sunshine Coast Council and will be held on Wednesday October 19 at the TAFE Queensland East Coast Campus. It’s a great opportunity to be face-to-face with employers of all kinds. Last year’s event helped more than 170 local people find jobs and we’re hoping even more locals find employment opportunities this year. Register at www.thejobshow.com.au.
Shopping centre update
In another major development for Bli Bli, clearing has commenced on the Bli Bli Village Centre and it won’t be long before you start to see the construction work coming out of the ground. It seems everyone is looking forward to this new centre opening. Council is also in the planning stage of a streetscape upgrade for the area and there will be plenty of opportunity for the community to become involved once we have put together a draft landscape plan later this year.
