Skate park opened

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

THE Mt Perry Skate Park was opened on Satur­day.

To see so many dif­fer­ent groups come to­gether for fundrais­ing and gen­eral ca­ma­raderie is a true gauge of the strength of the com­mu­nity.

Full marks to the lead­er­ship of Cr John Bowen which was fully recog­nised on the day. The park was of­fi­cially opened by the mem­ber for Bund­aberg Leanne Don­ald­son, in recog­ni­tion of the con­tri­bu­tion from the State Gov­ern­ment and in the un­avoid­able ab­sence of our lo­cal mem­ber Jeff Seeney.

With the Or­ange Fes­ti­val only a few short weeks away, it is great to see res­i­dents get­ting into the spirit and be­com­ing in­volved.

The poles that have al­ready been painted look ter­rific and are a credit to the small com­mit­tee who or­gan­ise and run the event. With the Gayn­dah Races and the State of Or­anges League match on the same week­end, it will be great to be part of.

Cr Whe­lan and my­self, with coun­cil­lors Bowen, Wendt and Fran­cis, had a meet­ing with TSBE Group CEO Shane Charles who work out of Well­camp Air­port and is in­volved with ex­ports to Asian coun­tries. Hope­fully we can be­come in­volved and give ac­cess to our pro­duc­ers. Any­body wish­ing to learn more is very wel­come to con­tact me.

Mark Pitt, our CEO, has re­turned to work this week and it is good to see how well he has re­cov­ered. David Wiskar has stood in for Mark over that pe­riod and filled the po­si­tion ex­cel­lently.

Full marks to the com­mit­tees who keep the shows run­ning in each town and the many com­peti­tors. Monto and Eidsvold have had their events and it leaves Mun­dub­bera and Biggen­den to com­plete the North Bur­nett cir­cuit.
