WEEK IN REVIEW

THE master plan to turn the Mon Repos Turtle Centre into a year-round tourist attraction is progressing with a new turtle-themed amphitheatre roof now in place.
The completion of the new roof is part of $500,000 funding allocated to the centre by the State Government in August last year.
The centre is set to reopen in August this year and showcase the new improvements.
THE carpark was full and inside the Sugarland Tavern it was standing room only as cute pigs and beer attracted hundreds in support of Give Me 5 for Kids.
Give Me 5 for Kids is a community-based appeal that raises funds for the children’s wards at the Bundaberg and Hervey Bay Hospital’s.
Charity co-ordinator Jo Martin had initially hoped the event would raise $5000.
