Ten South Burnett community groups who have been successful in the latest round of Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) grants.
These groups will share in more than more than $295,000 for infrastructure upgrades and equipment.
The successful South Burnett groups in Round 102 of the GCBF include:
I would encourage local groups to consider applying for a Gambling Community Benefit Fund grant to help achieve their goals.
These grants are now offered over five rounds per year and provide a significant opportunity for community groups to work on important projects.
It’s important to note that there have been some recent changes to the Guidelines and groups should head the GCBF website to check these changes and ensure their applications meet all requirements.
The next Gambling Community Benefit Fund round closes on February 29.

The Bunya Mountains are a much-loved part of the Nanango Electorate and I recently met with representatives from the Bunya People’s Aboriginal Corporation to learn more about their work at the Bunyas.
The group made a special trip to Parliament House to highlight the work of their Indigenous Rangers.
In particular, we talked about bushfire protection and also the future of the Indigenous Ranger programs across Queensland.
It’s through programs like that that the Bunya Mountains will retain its beauty and significance for generations to come.
My calendars were delivered across the South Burnett in early January.
This year they feature a beautiful photo taken by Torie Harrison, of Oakwood Dairy at Mt Kilcoy.
Thank-you Torie for allowing me to share this great pic of daily life on your dairy farm!
If you didn’t receive your calendar – or would like a couple of extra copies – please just give my office a call on (07) 4190-7100.
School’s back and I’m urging motorists across the region to take extra care around school zones.
Schools are clearly marked with 40km/h zones, and patience is the key during the busy school drop-off and pick-up times.
So remember to slow down to help keep our children safe.
I wish our teachers, students and their families all the very best for a productive and fun 2020 school year!
We have so many amazing community groups, agencies and workers across the Nanango Electorate.
Just prior to Christmas I had the chance to thank many of them for what they do each and every day in our patch.
From our teachers, police men and women, to community workers and festival organisers, a great group came together at my Nanango Electorate to celebrate 2019.
Thank-you to all those who travelled from far and wide across the Electorate for the event.
