We are spoilt for choice

Central and North Burnett Times - - AROUND TOWN -

MUN­DUB­BERA is a town to be proud of.

Not only does it have great sports, cul­tural, busi­ness and com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties, it also has ded­i­cated and en­thu­si­as­tic vol­un­teer teams to cre­ate events and ac­tiv­i­ties.

Our hall, li­brary and art gallery are venues to be proud of.

It amazes me that they are not vis­ited by more res­i­dents and tourists. The mu­seum too is a place of in­ter­est and a cul­tural as­set to the town.

When it comes to sports, our com­mu­nity is spoilt for choice.

The North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil’s Archer Park sport­ing fa­cil­ity is the envy of many com­mu­ni­ties and gives lo­cals the op­por­tu­nity to or­gan­ise games of their choice.

When we add the bowls club, golf club, squash courts, school grounds and show­grounds as places to play, it’s no won­der we find sports­peo­ple try­ing to choose be­tween ac­tiv­i­ties.

Bicentennial Park, Archer Park, Ski Area, Nell Half­penny Park, Black Stump rest area and more gar­dens around town mean there should al­ways be an at­trac­tive spot to rest and re­ju­ve­nate.

We ex­pect that the in­for­ma­tion cen­tre will be back in ac­tion in the not-too-dis­tant fu­ture.

Lo­cal groups, most op­er­ated by vol­un­teers, or­gan­ise events for our sup­port and en­joy­ment.

How can we over­look the great work that goes into the lo­cal show, Taste of the Bur­nett, mar­kets, sports, ed­u­ca­tion, en­ter­tain­ment and so­cial oc­ca­sions?

As for our lo­cal businesses, the range of prod­ucts and ser­vices avail­able in town is hard to beat and the qual­ity of ser­vice and com­mu­nity sup­port by our town and ru­ral busi­ness own­ers goes a great way to­wards help­ing our com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions do their work.

Gen­er­ous lo­cals un­der­stand: if we want it to hap­pen, we prob­a­bly have to help make it hap­pen.

That’s life in a small town. En­joy, take part, help out. Do it! Be a Mun­dub­bera am­bas­sador.
