Deagon Ward E-News
The last month has been another busy one for the Deagon Ward community. It was an honour to present awards to students at Bracken Ridge High and Sandgate High at both their Sports and Academic Awards night - including the Councillor Jared Cassidy Award for Academic Excellence.
I have also made a submission to the Shorncliffe Pier Project Team on behalf of the hundreds of locals who responded to my community survey. Thanks to Tackle Land Sandgate and Stirling Hinchliffe for collecting surveys also. This submission included feed back from you on what you wanted to see at the official opening. it also included the feedback on the questions I asked of you:
- Do you think the official opening of the Shorncliffe Pier should be a community day, organised by the community? 95.9% YES
- I would like the opening to include stalls from local businesses and community groups. 89.4% YES
- I would like to see live music at the Pier opening (including on the Pier) from local musicians. 95.35% YES
- The official opening should include the history of our Pier and of our local community. 96.8% YES
I have urged the Construction team to take this information on board and to allow the community the opportunity to have significant input into the organisation of the opening.
