Saturday provided an opportunity to combine recreation with fundraising when I attended the Kilkivan Police and Business Houses Charity Golf Day in aid of research into Motor Neurone Disease. It was great to see Kilkivan OIC Acting Sgt Llew O'Brien, QPS Deputy Commissioner Brett Pointing and Member for Gympie Tony Perrett there on the day. Luckily the fundraising figure wasn’t dependent on scores!

One of our region’s great communities, Goomeri, will be on show this Sunday. The Goomeri Pumpkin Festival is a fun filled day of quirky pumpkin competitions, displays and entertainment. Join the thousands of people who flock to Goomeri for a day of great pumpkin fun. The event helps put our region on the map, and was recently voted as a Must Do event by the RACQ.

This year’s event includes pig racing for the first time, as well as cooking demonstrations run by professional chefs, including Gympie Region Food and Culinary Tourism Ambassador Matt Golinski, using nothing but the best local produce and pumpkins.

Council is running a region wide Community Satisfaction Survey over the next few weeks. Independent market research firm Market Facts will conduct telephone surveys with over 400 randomly selected residents to gather input on a broad range of Council services.

I thank you for taking the time to respond if you are called by Market Facts, as your input will help us to shape the Gympie region the natural choice to live, work and play.
