Bill Davison was an outstanding local man who sadly passed away early this year. As a tribute to Bill and the wonderful community spirit he displayed over a lifetime farming and living in North Arm, I have submitted a formal proposal on behalf of the Community, to name the current Wegner Road Bridge in his honour.
If you would like to support this proposal, you can do so in writing to council’s Community Connections Team at Locked Bag 72, Sunshine Coast Mail Centre, Qld, 4560 or via email: email@example.com
A great experience
The recent Experience Eumundi – Past, Present and Future Festival was a terrific occasion as part of the SC50 anniversary celebrations.
There were Indigenous demonstrations, dance parties, BBQs & kids events in Dick Caplick Park as well as Brewery celebrations and a grand parade celebrating Eumundi’s past, present and future.
Congratulations to everyone involved in putting together this great community event.
Car park crackdown
The Goodstart Early Learning centre on Napier Road has 10 car parks adjoining the centre which are all signed for 15 minutes during week days (Monday to Friday). These car spaces were allocated to give parents a convenient and safe place to park and to enable the escorting of their little ones into and out of the facility without having to do laps of Eumundi especially on Wednesday, Market Day.
Unfortunately there have been many reports that these designated parking spots are being taken up by market-goers for hours at a time, leaving parents with the tough task of finding somewhere else to park during drop-off and pickup times and putting the safety of children at greater risk.
To prevent this from continuing, there will be a rigorous crackdown on illegal parking in these childcare centre spots. Parking inspectors will be closely monitoring the area, particularly during market Wednesdays so please do the right thing and leave these spots free for their intended purpose.
North Arm Park
There’ll soon be some extra bounce in North Arm Park with the basketball court to undergo renewal works. A new concrete slap with line markings and basketball equipment will replace the existing facilities. Work will commence shortly and is expected to be finished by mid-December.
