SCAM WARNING: Fake Council Letter

We are extremely concerned about a fake Council letter regarding a ‘Brisbane City Council Grants Scheme’  being distributed to residents across northern parts of the city.

Queensland Police has been informed and Councils Contact Centre has been notified. DO NOT CALL the mobile number listed on the letter.

Whoever is responsible for circulating this fake letter has intentionally been extremely heartless when there are so many Brisbane residents who are doing it tough right now. 

We encourage anyone who has received or is concerned about this fake letter to contact Council on 3403 8888.

QLD Seniors Week are very excited that they can still celebrate 60 years of Celebrating Queensland Seniors this year, though a little differently.  

Do you know who else is celebrating 60 years?  The Queensland Ballet. Research conducted by Queensland Ballet has shown that Ballet for Seniors led to positive wellbeing outcomes, particularly: feeling more energetic/animated, keeping in shape, bodily control/awareness, posture, flexibility, physical wellbeing, and overall wellbeing. The Queensland Ballet remains committed to delivering community programs such as Ballet for Seniors in 2020 and beyond, and to keep the magic of ballet alive. Whilst their usual face to face interactive program may not take place in a number of areas around the state, there is a great range of virtual events.  The beauty of virtual events is you can access them from anywhere!  They also provide a safe way for us to celebrate with one and other.  

This year the  Queensland Government, Queensland Ballet, and COTA Queensland have partnered together to bring you four very special Virtual Seniors in the Studio dance classes. More information about the classes and about Queensland Seniors Week can be found here clicking here.

Do you have questions? You can reach out to Lisa from QLD Seniors Week at seniorsweek@cotaqld.org.au or by phoning 07 3316 2908.

Comment on Facebook 🚧 Update - KSD ...

The $64k question for residents of some of the highest rate paying suburbs in SEQ - drum roll....when does the right turn into our hood from KSD to Riverview Tce re-open? Visitors, Uber and Taxi drivers shall rejoice at not having to drive all the way up to the BP to do a u-ie!

So excited for it to be all finished. The Lores Bonney Riverwalk is so good. Use it all the time.

probably see a vaccine for COVID-19 before this is ever finished

😡 This is NOT okay and not responsible dog ownership 😡

I am sorry if this picture is offensive but this was left at the main thoroughfare of the Hamilton Library. The Ward Office has doggy bags for collection which clip onto your dogs lead and, hopefully, help with picking up after your dog. Dogs dont know any better - but owners should.Image attachment

You need to take a walk, not only toxic dog poo, bags have been left in and around parks. The litter issue has been raised a number of times and no change just more and more litter. Time to get serious in your area about litter, the audits are not good with the majority dog bags, ciggy butts, 7 eleven everything, coffee cups, lids etc ending up inthe river. #leaveitbetterthanyoufoundit

It’s shocking most responsible people pick up their dog ness. Others leave it !! Name and shame those who don’t pickup

Bannister Park, Hendra = dog excrement dump.

If that’s what they do in public and to destroy it for everyone else god help what their homes are like....makes me sick to think.

Thank God we are not in the middle of a pandemic and can worry about the smaller things in life💩🐩

Just take a walk down the new KSD river walk, it’s everywhere

Get it every day around here David. Some people just don't care.

Just rude

Well said Kisana. 😘

Council is warning vandals they will be caught, as camera monitoring graffiti hotspots are upgraded to make it even easier to catch these criminals and stop them defacing our great city.

You can report graffiti by calling Council on 3403 8888 or visiting www.brisbane.qld.gov.au.

The Brisbane City Cemeteries Team would like to invite you to attend their first remembrance service for National Missing Persons Week.
In 2019 the team completed works on a memorial at Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery to remember those who have never returned home. This memorial is the first of its kind in Queensland and is designed as both a reflection space and also one where plaques can be placed for those who are considered long term missing and a family needs a place to grieve. There remain approximately 2,600 people missing in Australia who have been missing for more than three months.  
This years service will commence at 3.00pm on Sunday the 2nd of August and consist of a short memorial service and candle lighting.

Were doing some repair and maintenance work in The Beirne Park in Hendra. One of the small fix-ups is to deal with the water run-off in rain events washing debris into the toilets. This small grass bank and other planned work will help.Image attachment
