Hello Readers and Welcome to issue 59!

Happy New year to everyone. So what will 2021 being us, a covid-19 injection, fingers crossed and hopefully a much better year for us all and especially our local businesses.

Our Feature Story is about Amalgamation of our council 12 years later.

We have Australia coming up in the next few weeks and there will be plenty of celebrations through out our region, there is some information on how Beachmere residents will celebrate, so please enjoy and remember social distancing is still very important.

In this issue we have some great articles about Beachmere residents failed from the council when it comes to water management and flooding. A really lovely little article about a message in a bottle from a Toorbul resident, a great article on the Caboolture war plane museum and much more.

Enjoy your read and please feel free to call me or email me if you have any questions on our articles and I am keen to hear from you regarding our feature story.

Take care

Warm Regards
