September has been a month full of surprises, from pop up concerts in Deagon to DA applications in Boondall, Deagon Ward is well and truly back into the swing of things.
COVID restrictions have eased across all LGA's in Queensland with groups of up to thirty people being able to gather in homes and public spaces. Summer BBQ's are most definitely back on the cards and it's great to see the community engaging in a more normal and comfortable manner.
In other news the Sandgate Youth Festival finalists have been announced and will now proceed to their performance night on the 10th of October. The event will be live streamed over the Festivals Facebook page between six and nine pm. It's a great opportunity to kick back and enjoy the very best young talent our area has to offer!

We also got to attend an adapted 'Greek Affair' festival this year at the St Paraskevi Orthodox Church. Put together by Father Panagiotis, Costa and a host of volunteers I was excited to be able to visit with our local member Stirling Hinchliffe MP and enjoy all things Greek!
I was also lucky enough to attend the Brisbane Volunteer Marine Rescue AGM. A great organisation that strives to keep our boaties and bay users safe I am proud to announce I will once again be returning as the clubs Patron.
The work they do at VMR stretches far beyond that of which you would generally expect of a marine rescue unit. Running a wide variety of community events year in and year out takes a lot of effort and something all of us here in the Deagon Ward can appreciate.
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.
