Fires!

We have some wonderful bushland parks around the Wynnum Manly area - and sadly some of it has been burned in recent weeks.

One area between Manly Road and Wynnum Road caused lots of problems last weekend and early in the week - it did go right up close to buildings but all were saved due to the diligence of our firies.

I have no idea how the fire started - but it looks a little suspicious!

Why do folk get excited about setting fires? So dangerous. So much damage!

I guess it reminds us as summer approaches though to have some sort of fire plan - clear the gutters of debris, have a fire plan at home, etc.

When we get rain the bushland will rejuvenate!

Foreshore Development

For many many months there has been redevelopment along the whole foreshore from near Wynnum Creek to the north, and Manly to the south. There is still more work to do, but a new BBQ area is finished near Wynnum Creek, and this weekend some of the work is finished at Manly - enough that the Brisbane Lord Mayor will be visiting tomorrow to open it.

The foreshore is always very popular during weekends, especially during summer when the cool breezes from the bay keep everyone a bit cooler. The views are spectacular and the fish and chipperies along the waterfront do good business as families gather under the various shelters to party and enjoy all that there is to offer.

No doubt the new facilities will be much used during the coming hot months. I shall visit with camera in hand tomorow to get some photos to post in the next day or so.

Anyone coming to the area and looking for work? Call in at Bayside Recruitement in Edith St Wynnum - check out their website at
