Signal Flare are a group of volunteers who host a number of events at Cameron Park, putting on a barbecue, health testing, clothing, haircuts, gifts and other services for those doing it tough.
Many volunteers help Berni and her team run the days and the latest was once again a great success.
STRUD Property volunteer their time and resources and put on a barbecue.
I was impressed to see North Ipswich Girl Guides involved in the day handing out food products.
It’s always good to see our community rallying to help those less fortunate.
The cars are coming
IT’S exciting to hear that another lapping cruise night will be held on Saturday, October 28.
That means we’ll again get to see hundreds of classic cars and hot rods come to Ipswich and it will bring thousands of onlookers back to the CBD.
Hooning and lapping were once a problem in the CBD with errant behaviour causing grief to business and residents.
This cruise night is a far different thing and they attract business to our hospitality providers and bring out the families.
Phantom a beauty
I had the pleasure of seeing the spectacular performance of Phantom of the Opera by the Ipswich Musical Theatre Company last weekend.
If you like musicals, you will not be disappointed if you get tickets to the remaining performances at the Ipswich Civic Centre.
Everything about the production is amazing from costumes, sets, orchestra, choreography, and stunning soloists.
Congratulations to everyone involved with a special production.
Redbank take trophy
Whilst the NRL finals are in full swing, our local season has come to an end, with the Redbank Plains Bears winning their first top grade premiership trophy.
The Fassifern Bombers won Reserve Grade, and the Springfield Panthers won the Volunteers Cup.
Congratulations to all teams and officials, and I trust the Bears have now fully recovered from their first grand-final party.
