Mayor's message


September 2020

With the school holidays fast approaching, it’s fantastic to see a range of activities and events now available for the community to come together again.  The Town’s School Holiday program at the Community Hub and Library offers everything from arts and craft to mindfulness for kids, and if you’re looking for something more active, don’t miss The Great Claremont Treasure Hunt through the Town Centre.
It is important that we continue to offer ways of bringing the community together and we have some great facilities in the Town for families to enjoy the warmer spring weather, such as the Splash Pad at the Aquatic Centre. I encourage everyone to keep an eye on our website and social media to be updated with activities and hope to see you out and about.

Watch for QFly in your Green Waste

The Town’s green waste bulk verge collection has come around again with the first area collection starting 28 September. The collection will remove branches and cuttings up to 1.5m in length and bags (available from council administration) of leaves and small vegetation.
Help to eradicate the Queensland Fruit Fly (QFly) by stripping all branches of QFly host fruit before being left out for verge collection. To check your property’s collection date, visit the Waste Services section on the Town’s website.
