Easter events for you on the Cooloola Coast

Gail Langdown from CCR&F welcomes everyone to the Easter Fair

As the Easter break and school holidays are fast approaching, hopefully with some cooler weather, the Cooloola Coast Local Ambulance Committee says it is timely to warn parents of the dangers for young children around campfires. Children have been burnt through stepping on sand that has been used to extinguish a campfire.

A fire put out with a bucket of water will retain little or no heat after a period of 10 minutes whereas using sand or dirt can mean that heat up to 100 degrees Celsius will remain for over eight hours. Burns should be cooled with cold running water and medical assistance sought immediately. Stay safe and enjoy these activities….

Easter Fair

The 2018 Easter Fair on Saturday March 31, at the Cooloola Community Complex, will be a bigger and better day. There’s Easter hat and bonnet displays, egg and spoon races, local art, craft and photography, YAP activities for the kids and competitions with prizes, 10c auctions, entertainment, food and drink.

All are welcome. The Cooloola Cove Residents and Friends family fun day will have new outside area displays.

After a successful Movie Night last month, preceded by a CCYAP function – it was a great night for the kids – the Cooloola Cove Residents and Friends are looking for volunteers for the fair. Hopefully more movies can happen at the Complex. Thanks to those who attended.

Our group is always looking for members, if you would like to support the future of Cooloola Cove and provide support to the community, including other community groups, join us.

If you are keen to be part of the Easter Fair, and any organisation that wishes to be part of this great day, please contact Graham: 0433062906.

Fireworks For Easter

Because of the storm the TCB Chamber of Commerce are rerunning their NYE Foreshore Carnival on Easter Saturday March 31st.

There’ll be music, food, carnival rides including dodgem cars, because it’s Easter there will be Easter egg hunts for the kids, but most important there will be FIREWORKS.

Fun starts at midday on Easter Saturday with the fireworks at 9.00pm.

Entry is, as always, free.

Remember, the next edition of the Community News comes before Easter and the school holidays – so there’s still time to add your events to the list.
