Maleny has a wide and varied mix of community groups and volunteer organisations and one of these groups is the Maleny & Hinterland JP Service currently led by Mrs Alison Sleath. I had the pleasure of presenting one of their members, Mr Brian Allen with his 40 year service Ruby certificate this week in honour of his long standing role as a JP in our community. Anyone wishing to learn more about the JP’s should contact Alison on – 5499 9961. For those of you who have not heard yet, I am hosting a community morning tea at my office on Wednesday 15 December for any community groups, like the JP’s, who are based in the Hinterland. This is my way of saying thanks for what you do for our community. For more details please phone my office on 5435 2013.
