✅ New Combined Fire and Emergency Services Complex in Maleny

There are celebrations in Maleny this evening with today’s “official opening” of the “tri-service” fire and emergency services complex. For Scott and his team at the Maleny RFB and Dan and the Maleny State Emergency Service crew it means no more “bumping in and bumping out” at the old show pavilion 🐄 Whilst grateful to the Maleny Show Society for many years of accommodation it was high time these teams found a new home. And with Captain David and the Maleny QFRS the opportunities for new partnerships and teamwork are really exciting. Huge thank you to Scott, Dan and David and the countless volunteers (Pam, Jared, Nick…so many of you) - well done! It was worth the wait. 🚒

That wonderful man, the Sunshine Coast Foodie, brought Sconetime to Bankfoot House again this morning. So it was all hands on deck to serve - including Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce Inc. President Jenny and Bankfoot House’s Manager Peter. It’s a wonderful initiative building social inclusion and it’s always a privilege to serve, not eat 🤣, the scones. ... See MoreSee Less

To be honest, I thought a grant of over $17,000 from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund would have brought out a smile in “Taffy” (centre). Almost. But not quite. 🤣 Maybe when President Tony and the Glass House Country Mens Shed Inc install their new ventilation system we will get one out of him. 🤣🤣 Congratulations, gentlemen! ...

Feel the pressure! Don’t think I’ve ever had so much scrutiny of my technique by so many experts as I did at Club Glass House and the Glasshouse Country Bowls Club. Fortunately, politicians know a thing or two about “bias” 🤣🤣 And the real winners were the bowlers who are scoring new shade and other upgrades thanks to nearly $26,500 from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund. 🎉 ...
