Emergency services had a very big week again last week in our region with 19 call outs for our State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers in last weeks storm. Overall the region was fairly lucky considering the cricket ball sized hail in some areas. Kandanga was probably the hardest hit with several cars and buildings damaged.
Our SES volunteers do an amazing job, often leaving their own families during storms and natural disasters to go and help others in our community ensure that their homes and businesses are safe. Council is a big supporter of SES and this year alone has donated four emergency management vehicles to to the local SES group. The SES use the customised dual cab utilities to carry out the valuable work they do on behalf of the Gympie regional community. Council has now donated 10 vehicles to the SES fleet.
This week I had the fortune attend the Kandanga Farm Annual Lunch. Council is very proud to support this lunch which creates an opportunity for local growers and producers to showcase their goods to foodies, chefs, restaurateurs, business owners and the general public who are interested in discovering the amazing local produce that is available in the region. Congratulations to all involved especially Tim and Amber at Kandanga Farm and Martin and the team at Sunshine Coast Foodie.
With many parents from our region and with mixed emotions this week I also attended my youngest child’s primary school graduation. I just can’t believe how quickly the time has gone. I am really proud of all of my kids for their achievements this year and most of all for putting up with me and my hectic job.
