Deagon Ward E-News

April 2019

April has come quick and looking back, 2019 has been a great year for our local community so far with a number of successful events and achievements. We have seen the school year off to a flying start, new sports clubs open, community celebrations like the Sandgate Film Gala and Clean Up Australia Day.  I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family and friends a happy and safe Easter Weekend, wherever you are spending it. 

Tomorrow (Good Friday) our local area will draw crowds from far and wide at the annual Bluewater Festival! This event will host great stalls and fantastic live entertainment among many other things. See the section below for more details and a full event program!

ANZAC Day will follow soon after the Easter long weekend on Thursday April 25. There are a number of local services you can attend from Dawn at Geebung to sunset at Brighton. Please see below for full details of local services. 

Keep an eye out on my Facebook page to keep up to date with local news and events.

If you are part of a local community group and want me to feature an upcoming event in my e-news please contact my office to arrange this.
