Crack­ing way to end show sea­son

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

WITH Biggen­den Show be­ing held last week-end, it brings to an end the show cir­cuit in the North Bur­nett. I have noth­ing but praise for the ex­ec­u­tive and mem­bers who keep the shows run­ning each year and al­low peo­ple to dis­play their pro­duce and skills in the many as­pects of coun­try life.

The Act­ing Com­mis­sioner of Queens­land Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices, John Bol­ger, called to­gether a num­ber of of­fi­cers of lo­cal brigades in Eidsvold last week­end to award them for out­stand­ing ser­vice at heavy ve­hi­cle crashes and dev­as­tat­ing fires in the re­gion. He was lav­ish in his praise of the lo­cal peo­ple and their sup­port staff. With the high qual­ity of the of­fi­cers and the sup­port of coun­cil, bet­ter train­ing will be held in the re­gion to cater for a big­ger area in the fu­ture. Po­lice, SES, Am­bu­lance and ru­ral of­fi­cers were present and to­gether make up the full fam­ily of emer­gency ser­vices who do a mag­nif­i­cent job.

It was great to be present at the dis­tri­bu­tion of awards to the many peo­ple across the re­gion who have been part of vol­un­teer groups in the many towns.

Many have been work­ing for the com­mu­nity for many years and some for sev­eral or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The Aus­tralian Fish­ing Cham­pi­onships are be­ing held at Ca­nia Dam from May 20-24 and will at­tract com­peti­tors from over­seas as well.

Full marks to the Bund­aberg and North Bur­nett Tourist As­so­ci­a­tion for their sup­port and pro­mo­tion of the re­gion. Mun­dub­bera BP
