We aim to ensure that development in Dulong meets the needs of the residents and visitors to our community. Let’s put people and communities before developers.
Philanthropy Lives on in Dulong!
Saturday 2 December 2017
Today we’ve attended the launch of a new residential development at 198-218 Dulong Road.
The BIG news is Cr Rogerson announced the site of our Community Garden. The first public space within Dulong in 50 years (since Dulong State School closed from 27 August 1967).
The owners of the new development have gifted 1000m2 of their land for the Community Garden Project, including post and rail fencing.
We’re happy to see that philanthropy is still alive in Dulong! Further, we hope the owner of the Dulong-Kureelpa School of Arts site/remains follows the lead of Kate and Steven Pilcher and gives back what rightfully belongs to this community.
It’s good to see residents of our community getting together along with our dogs – committed to building a healthy, more connected community.
We met Pia Dowling, recognised organic gardener and academic at USC who will be working with the Sunshine Coast Council and the community, to support the development of a sustainable garden and educational workshops.
At last, we’re on our way; more news soon.
Christmas Time in Dulong!
For the third year, from 1 December our community Christmas Tree can be found in the School Bus Shelter (corner Dulong/Dulong School Road).
The tree was kindly donated by a community minded neighbour. Everyone is welcome to add a decoration or a neighbourly Christmas message.
Also, we hope you’ll join in the festive cheer by decorating your letterbox which really caught on last year.
Photos of your letterboxes were compiled in a DVD with music – Chloe Baker’s song, “These Bells Will Ring” which offers simple lyrics with a powerful message of peace, love, and a remembrance of the true meaning of the holidays. “Peace will come when the world is one.”
