The colder weather is on its way now, which means we are getting closer to some important local events including Council's Homeless Connect and our very own Einbunpin Festival.
The 2018 Einbunpin Festival will be held on July 29 and is shaping to be another great celebration of our community. Now in it's 27th year, the Festival will have 4 stage areas, art activities, free children's activities and hundreds of community and local business stalls. Check out the festival website
for details on our competitions and activities. We have lots of opportunities for new festival volunteers this year from entertainment and activities volunteers to bump-in and bump-out and also helping with our festival survey on the day. If you would like to be involved, please let my office know and we will get in touch.
In 2005, Council developed plans for an upgrade of Brighton Park, Decker Park and the Brighton Foreshore. $3 million was allocated for works in 2010-11 and 2011-12 however, that funding was withdrawn to prioritise flood recovery projects across the city. This work has been complete for some time and the Brighton Foreshore project remains in limbo. Brisbane’s unique landscape sees residents enjoy mountains in the west through ecologically significant creek catchments and wetlands in the north and east, and the foreshore areas at Brighton / Sandgate / Shorncliffe. This area attracts thousands of visitors and while facilities in Shorncliffe and Sandgate have been upgraded in recent times, the Brighton Foreshore continues to be overlooked. Please join me in calling for funding for this vital local project by signing my petition here.
