One of the area’s seasoned hoteliers is hoping to see a return to safe and unrestricted travel once vaccination rates hit 80 per cent.

Roberto Salicio, who bought the management rights for Quest Breakfast Creek last year, said “we know there is pent up demand from people wanting to travel and see loved ones for Christmas”.

“We are ready and raring to welcome back all travellers with our stay safe promise,” he said.

Mucking out horse stables at 3am is not for everyone, but when you love horses as much as strapper Ashleigh Hall does then it’s no chore.

... “I’ve always wanted to be in racing as my family was always in it so it was inevitable I’d end up in racing somewhere or other,” she said.

... Having learnt to ride before she could walk, Miss Hall said the best part of her day was just being around horses.

Now that the Council has relocated their staff out of the Breakfast Creek offices a few years ago, all of the local water-based boat clubs eagerly are grabbing the unique opportunity to utilize the empty building as their new headquarters.

As co-tenants, The Breakfast Creek Boat Club, the Brisbane Wooden Boat Association QLD, Te Waka Dragons and the Brisbane Paddling Club will all share a common outdoor locked compound and kitchen area but still retain their individual identities with allocated workshop, office and club facilities.

22/09/2021

Local owner-occupiers and interstate buyers have led a surge in demand for Rivello Hamilton apartments, with more than $102 million in off-the-plan sales so far secured, developer Brookfield Residential Properties says.

Penthouses were among the first to sell but Brookfield Residential Properties managing director Lee Butterworth said there remains a good mix of apartments available, ranging from one-bedroom floorplans to the final two sub-penthouses.

“There is certainly significant demand for Brisbane property in the current market and buyers recognise Rivello represents a rare opportunity to purchase a new apartment in a building on the Brisbane River,” Mr Butterworth said.

A Valley art exhibition will explore memories of good times with those nearest and dearest - blankets, sunshine, food, wine, and stolen moments – but with a twist, an Ipswich-based artist says.

Ipswich-based artist Matthew Cheyne said his latest subject matter looks at abstract interpretations of the landscape and the environment.

Cheyne said he was surprised by people’s comments on the colours he had used.

“They are different to what I thought,” Cheyne said.

“This is a consequence of being colour blind – a condition that results in the most delightful and piquant compositions."

Holstein Wong, from New Farm, has been donating her hair for cancer patients since 2019 and raising funds for the Cancer Council’s PonytailProject.

A possible ideal for a future article. New Farm and surrounds seems to have an interesting mix of people. Where do they mostly come from? and if/when they leave … where do they mostly go to? And in both cases, are they generally happy with their decision?
Beautiful painting from the Collection “SUNDAYS in NEW FARM PARK” by local New Farm artist.
Just got home from work and again, by the grace of God, managed to narrowly miss getting hit by a car on the Commercial Road crossing. It’s been about a month since the last time so I guess I was due. How many other people have begged the council to hurry up and start putting traffic lights on the corner of Doggett and Commercial Road? How long do we have to wait? Will take a death? I’m just curious...

Hello, I am trying to make contact with Patricia Jane Wood, (or relatives of), whose husband flew with the RAAF in Wales, UK during, or just after WWII. I am also trying to make contact with Julius Toth, who had a pharmacy at 79B Merthyr Road in about 2007. Any advice, or guidance would be most welcome.
Hello Village News, I just want to comment on the Skyring Terrace article in your current issue. I too have fears that someone might be injured, perhaps fatally, in this area. This is mainly due to the number of pedestrians that jay-walk in the area rather than using the designated pedestrian crossings at the traffic lights. I regularly drive along Skyring terrace on my way to work. I frequently see people taking stupid risks crossing the section of road between the Breakfast Creek Road and Cunningham Street traffic lights, and have witnessed a near-miss when someone stepped out into the second lane of traffic from behind a transit vehicle (that obscured their view) that was stationary in the first lane. Your article references the relocation of CityGlider bus stop to its original position opposite the Gasometer, and that this again requires pedestrians to cross four lanes of traffic, but you don't mention that pedestrians have the option to safely cross those four lanes at either set of the lights located at the intersections I referenced above. It’s not a terribly long stretch of road. It hardly requires the pedestrian divert from their route to far, if at all? I don’t see that adding additional crossings in the area as being practical for traffic flow either. It may not be the only issue that needs to be addressed, but jay-walking is an important factor in the issue of pedestrian safety along this stretch, and I'm surprised that it wasn't even mentioned in your article. I’m curious to know what other drivers in this area think? Regards, Megan Miller New Farm
This monthly publication has matured into a high quality provider of news & current issues. A wonderful improvement. Well done to all those responsible. It is something we now look forward to each month. Keep up the great work. cheers
