AGL POWERHOUSE IN ENERGY TO HOLD COMMUNITY MEETINGS IN WIDE BAY & FRASER COAST QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA

Learn how you could reduce your electricity bills at one of these community meetings to be held in Maryborough, Hervey Bay & Bundaberg by AGL.

Come along to this free community meeting to learn four great ways to help reduce your electricity bill.
We will have experts at the meeting who will be on hand to explain:
> How solar power systems work and whether solar power is right for you.
> How to access the federal and state government incentives.
> Ten common mistakes to avoid when going solar.
> How you can go solar without large upfront costs.

5 reasons to come along:
The knowledge you gain from this free community meeting could help you save energy and money

******************************************************

1. Protect yourself from rising electricity bills.
By generating your own electricity, you could reduce your electricity usage charges and help protect yourself from rising electricity prices.
2. Go solar now and make the most of the government incentive
The federal government’s solar incentive is set to drop by 33% from 1 July and to qualify for the current incentive, solar power systems must be fully installed before then.
But you need to act now, because to ensure installation in time, we need to receive deposits before 12 May 2012.1
3. Learn the advantages of going solar with a trusted company.
AGL has been a trusted energy company for 175 years, so you can be confident that we will support you from inquiry to installation.
4. We make solar affordable.
With our payment plan, you can go solar by paying only $199 upfront for installation of a 1 kW system, then pay your system off from $2.45 a day over 2 years (total minimum cost of $1,990 or from $1,699 without a payment plan).2
5. Maximise the return for any electricity you feed into the grid.
As a retailer, AGL offers an 8 cent premium on top of the amount payable under the Solar Bonus Scheme, giving you a great return on the electricity you feed into the grid.3

FLOWER POWER IN MARYBOROUGH FRASER COAST QLD

Watch these spaces and see them bloom
Remember to visit Queens Park Maryborough on Remembrance Day (11 November) because Council parks staff are predicting it will be awash with floral colour following extensive planting of annuals in September.

Team leader Marshall Nuttall said staff have planted petunias, cockscomb and celosia in the Judges’ Walk and fairy fountain beds and yellow and orange marigolds around the cenotaph.

“Once the plants are in full flower we can expect a few months of wonderful colour in this top section of the park,” he said.

Council parks staff have also drained and cleaned the Queens Park pond and thinned and pruned the plants in and around the pond.

Summer blooming in the Elizabeth Park Rose Gardens in Kent Street is also expected to be spectacular this summer.

The rose plants were cut right back in July to encourage vigorous growth, the beds were freshly mulched and new name plaques were installed on recycled plastic posts.

HERITAGE ICONS FOR THE STATEWIDE REGISTER. SUGGESTIONS WELCOME FOR THE FRASER COAST QLD

Help preserve our heritage
The Council is preparing a Local Heritage Register listing places of heritage significance on the Fraser Coast, to comply with the Queensland Heritage Act 1992.

Everyone’s invited to a series of information sessions to determine the community’s views on its heritage and to help identify the social significance of sites to be recognised.

Properties currently identified under existing planning schemes or in previous studies will be assessed first.

The Council will contact owners of any places identified for inclusion.

For more information go to the Council’s website www.frasercoast.qld.gov.au or contact Council’s Senior Strategic Planner Jeff Brannan on 1300 79 49 29.

CAMPING & ENTERTAINMENT AT THE TORBANLEA PICNIC RACES

SEE YOU AT THE TORBANLEA PICNIC RACES @ QUEENSLAND

HI,

It’s that time again! Thought I should give you as much notice as possible…

Planning for the annual Torbanlea Picnic Races on Saturday October 16 is well underway. This year, like 2009, Wide Bay Rural Weekly is a major media partner, and will feature the event over a 3 week series, maximizing promotion, especially to encourage bus bookings, camp site bookings, and all those people who prepare for Fashion of the Field.

The biggest advantage of featuring the event in Wide Bay Rural Weekly, apart from the hugely discounted rates on offer, is the insertion of Wide Bay Rural Weekly into Bundaberg’s NewsMail, Fraser Coast Chronicle and Gympie Times, which provides virtually triple the coverage.

This year the event is likely to be bigger than ever, bus bookings already, campsites and stalls booked already, folk from as far as New Zealand enquiring, and now even Corporate Marquee bookings available for groups 10, 20, 40 and more.

We invite you to consider participation, promote your message and support Torbanlea’s biggest fundraiser of the year. I look forward to opportunity to discuss this with you, and will follow up with a phone call in the next few days.

Should you have any query please feel free to contact me at your earliest opportunity.

  1. Bus bookings with Wide Bay Transit and G & D Ross Bus Charters
  2. Campsite bookings
  3. Entries for Fashion of the Field
  4. Team entries for the Team Tug of War event
  5. Riders and horses nominating for events
  6. The newest addition…..corporate tables and marquee bookings…groups of 10, 20 , 40, 50 or more can prebook to have a set place ready for their group, in the shade of a marquee, with table and chairs and includes the gate entry….for just $25 per head…and it’s all set up and cleaned up for you….

For event details folk can email [email protected] and for participation in the promotion, and program, supporting this major fundraiser email [email protected]

We look forward to your bookings and seeing everyone on the day…

Cheers for now,

Edith Rutherford

READ TO THE KIDS FOR ONE HOUR A WEEK – VOLUNTEERS NOW REQUIRED

Good Evening

My name is Cressida Toorenburg and I am the Regional Coordinator for The Pyjama Foundation.

The Pyjama Foundation recruits, screens, trains and supports Pyjama Angels – volunteer members of the community who work with foster children and support our true heroes – Australia’s foster families. Pyjama Angels deliver The Pyjama Foundation Love of Learning Program™, a literacy-based mentoring program which addresses statistics around children in care:

  • 92% of children in care are below the average reading level at age seven
  • 75% of these children do not complete schooling
  • 50% of the homeless come from a care background
  • 35% enter the juvenile justice system at some point (82% of Australian prisoners have below grade 4 level of functional literacy)
  • 28% of care-leavers are parents within 12 months of leaving care

I am currently looking for members of the Fraser Coast community over 18 years of age to be trained as Pyjama Angels. Angels visit a child in foster care once a week for one hour to read and engage them in literacy activities. The range and professional qualifications of our Pyjama Angels is diverse and they are made up of business and academic professionals, students, retirees and generally people who have a love of reading.

In an attempt to notify as many people and get the message out about this great not for profit organisation I would appreciate it if you could forward this email onto your networks please.

I have attached a copy of our Frequently Asked Questions and an application form should you or someone you know be interested in volunteering one hour a week. You may also like to visit the website  www.thepyjamafoundation.com where you can find further information including collection centres in the area for our annual pyjama drive.
