Live music fundraiser for hall
THE Queen Street Community Hall grounds are being improved thanks to work of hall volunteers, successful grant funding, local tradesmen and kind assistance from local civil and landscaping contractors.
Beautiful new sandstone steps have been installed by local stonemason Bob Beasley and a new driveway access has been constructed by Brad Hoff of Cap Coast Sand and Soil.
The two projects have increased the aesthetic value of the grounds, expanded the usable area of the facility whilst remaining in keeping with heritage features of site.
These initiatives are Phase 1 of a larger project - to provide an outdoor space for recreation activities and community events.
The steps project was made possible thanks to the 2015 New Beginnings community grant from the Keppel Bay Sailing Club and Livingstone Shire Council.
The project engaged with a Green Army Crew (youth employment scheme), and introduced the young people to a new trade (stonemason work); this included some hands on experience.
Come along to see some live music at the hall and support a fundraiser for further work on the outdoor space with artist Jeremiah Johnson and local acts, Medicinal Porpoises and Casey Marie on November 19 from 5pm. Entry: $10.
