The 2021 Lord Mayor’s Australia Day Awards have been announced and I’m please that two Local Heroes have been recognised.

The 2021 Brisbane Australia Day Citizen of the Year is Dorami Keyt, better know to all locally as Winbirra. Winbirra leads a dedicated group of volunteers engaging and inspiring the next generation of female leaders from the Hamilton Clayfield Brownies Den in Oriel Park. A truly well deserved recognition for someone who has never sought awards for what she does to inspire and build confidence in our district’s girls and young ladies.

And Jason Mayweather was recognised with an Australia Day Achievement Award. Jason volunteers with the Sporting Wheelies Association based in Albion. He is dedicated to making active goals accessible and enhancing the lives of people with a disability through health, fitness, sport, recreation and building inclusive communities, including through introducing disability sports to children of all abilities and schools.

Congratulations Dorami and Jason and thank you to everyone recognised in the Australia Day Awards for 2021.

This month marks a decade since Brisbane and its surrounding areas were submerged beneath the perilous waters of the 2011 floods. Despite the devastation, what rose up from beneath the floodwaters was an overwhelming sense of mateship and comradery. 

To mark ten years since the floods, Museum of Brisbane has commissioned local artist Holly Neilson of Paper Hands to respond to a selection of memories from locals about the inundation that swallowed our city, but not our community spirit, in an online exhibition. You can view it here https://www.museumofbrisbane.com.au/a-city-submerged/

Pride in Brisbane is soaring, with more than 90 per cent of residents backing our city as a great place to live with an affordable cost of living, high quality of life and positive future prospects compared to other Australian capital cities. 

This year, Brisbane also outsmarted the southern capitals to become Australia’s healthiest, cleanest and most efficient city according to the Global Smart City Index as well as beating Toronto, Perth and Auckland to claim 10th spot in the World Happiness Report 2020.

Comment on Facebook Pride in Brisbane is...

Great KSD has now been made into 3 lanes maybe we can get the truck drivers to move behind one another instead of spreading across all three lanes.

To make Brisbane even more livable, can you ask BCC to look at the possibility to install a right turning arrow traffic light at corner of Dawson St and Junction Road (northbound from Dawson St)? It's impossible to do a right turn into Junction Road at peak hours. Please?

Did you know that one-in-four Brisbane pools inspected this year did not meet current safety standards?
The good news is that Brisbane residents can request a free Council pool safety inspection.
It only takes 30 minutes, but it could be the difference between tragedy and saving a life.
Five of the most common safety risks include:

Faulty gate latches
Climbable objects encroaching the fence line
Not maintaining fencing
Changing fencing without appropriate approvals
Outdated CPR signs
Get your pool checked for free by contacting Council on 3403 8888 or for more information visit https://bit.ly/3p0hH2v

Did you know you can visit a subtropical island without leaving Brisbane? Moreton Island is the ultimate tropical staycation just a 75-minute cruise away!

Moreton Island has things to see and do for everyone. On land, enjoy sand tobogganing, glamping or hiking. If you love the water, try snorkelling, whale watching, swimming, or feeding dolphins at Tangalooma Resort. www.facebook.com/watch/?v=2698849970327841
