Bling'd Up Trucks - - News -

On Oc­to­ber 11, 2014, 51 names were added to the ever in­creas­ing ‘Lights on the Hill’ - Queens­land truck and coach driv­ers me­mo­rial wall in Gat­ton.

This year saw one of Gat­ton’s well known vet­er­ans of trans­port, Terry Nolan, added to the wall Terry was an avid sup­porter of the LOTH or­gan­i­sa­tion since its in­cep­tion.

The mov­ing cer­e­mony at the wall in Lake Apex Park was fol­lowed by a gath­er­ing at the town hall for a won­der­ful sit down buf­fet and live mu­sic all night.

The me­mo­rial was a stir­ring event, run very well by a pas­sion­ate group of vol­un­teers. The wall holds a lot of power and sig­nif­i­cance for those in the trans­port in­dus­try.

All of this is made pos­si­ble how­ever, by The lights on the hill con­voy, which next year will be held on Fe­bru­ary 28, 2015. Re­mem­ber to mark this in your di­aries. Money raised from this event all goes to as­sist with the up­keep of the wall and the Oc­to­ber me­mo­rial.

The con­voy is a great event to re­mem­ber those in the in­dus­try that have passed on and as I’ve heard in past years not a time for sad­ness but rather a time of cel­e­bra­tion, a time to celebrate ev­ery­thing good about truck­ing and a time to catch up with mates. The con­voy or­gan­is­ers have re­leased a stel­lar line up of artists who will be per­form­ing at the con­voy next year.

These artists in­clude Adam Brand, McAlis­ter Kemp, Terry Clark, Jayne Den­ham, Paul Costa, Kerry Kennedy and Dou­ble Bar­rel and Jeff Brown.
