The Cooloola Cove Residents and Friends Inc. (CCRFI) hosted the Mayor last month and he was able to answer most of our questions and requests.

He gave us time frames for a number of items coming to our area. We will see things happening certainly before the year is out. A very positive outcome for all our constant reminding.

We know that governments work slowly and that was reiterated here again. The ‘Our Towns Project’ was discussed in detail and also the work to be done in Billabong Park and Centenary of Federation Park.

A path is to be constructed between these two areas and bridges over the wetlands. We hope done with sensitivity to the nature of these special places; not too much concrete.

Mayor, Cr Mick Curran, visited an area of concern after the meeting, accompanied by members who dealt with this matter.

Our recent Mothers’ Day Raffle has been successful:

1st – Purple N78 – Thorn Family – $200 hair and beauty treatment at CCSTYLZ
2nd – Green J79 – Ruth Vaughan – champagne – flowers – chocolates

Thanks to David Midolo for his sterling work organising the raffle, to his loyal helpers selling the tickets and to everyone who supported us.

Next meeting is on Monday, June 20 at 10am in the Vets and Community Hall.
