The Redland BaR Awards Gala Evening was a great success.
On behalf of the RCCC Executive I congratulate the BaR Awards Chair Naomi Cauley and the committee on an excellent event. Congratulations to all the finalists and winners.
We are looking for people to join the 2018 BaR Awards committee. Are you in Retail &/or Business and want to give back to your community? This would be a great way to acknowledge the work of others (only limitation is Committee members can’t enter the awards).
It is our intention to continue with the Business of the Month so you don’t need to wait until next year to nominate. We encourage you to start thinking about entering the awards after September.
RCCC are supporting the Straddie Chamber of Commerce with the “Don’t Leave Straddie Stranded” campaign. We need your help!
We invite you as part of the Redlands community to sign the petition to gain support from all sides of Queensland’s politics for a proper economic transition package to make up for the loss of mining on Straddie. With the suggestion of a pending State Election, we need to engage current sitting members and candidates from all parties to ensure we “Don’t Leave Straddie Stranded”.
The funding is to help create new industries, sustainable businesses and jobs on the Straddie.
Why should you sign? It’s the old squeaky wheel gets the oil, if we don’t stand up we will not be heard. The potential issue is if we don’t get the appropriate level of State Government funding the Redland City business and residents could potentially end up having rates raised to assist fund the transition.
To join the campaign – straddiestranded.com.au – sign the petition, use the email templates and share. Ask your friends to get on board and be heard.
Remember “buy local, employ local”
