The final edition of the BeCA Newsletter for 2012 is available for download HERE. It is in excess of 1mb to download as a pdf document. It contains much of the news readily copied from this website. The website should be your first port of call for all the latest goings on.
The Newsletter will be delivered over the next week or so. We are ‘down’ on volunteer deliverers at the moment and more volunteers are sought. If you are interested in being a volunteer deliverer click HERE.
Chopperline has reported that there will not be a lot of circuits planned by them for the week coming up. However BeCA has it on good authority that some helicopters from the large training school at Maroochydore Aerodrome are flying around our area at the moment. Becker Helicopters at Maroochydore have recently won a huge contract to carry out a substantial helicopter training course. The noisy tiger moth which was doing touch ‘n go’s at 7:30 am this morning (Sunday) awoke some residents from their usual Sunday lie in. However this aircraft was flying within the “Fly Neighbourly” policy.
A further reminder to all residents to return those surveys recently distributed by Stockland. If there is a return rate of 20% or more BeCA will receive a $500 donation. Note that if you wish to return your completed survey to the Bells Reach Land Sales Office, it is now situated at the southern end of the display village at Bells Reach.
On Friday BeCA attended a Forum conducted by local MP Mark McArdle on a future vision for Caloundra. Those of us who have previously been involved with Vision Statements would understand it took quite some time for the up to 30 people there to reach consensus on the exact wording of the major statement: “That Caloundra commit to being the most dynamic, welcoming and connected community in Queensland.” This statement was followed by many ‘dot’ points on how this could be achieved
There was intense debate on whether environmental issues should be included within the main vision statement. Eventually it was decided that it fitted as one of the major dot points to follow the Statement.
The intense debate on what was to be included in the major Statement took well over an hour.
Don’t forget the Carols in the Park at 5pm on Sunday December 16th near the BBQ’s at Canavan Gracie Recreational Park. And if you have if you have donation for a hamper, it will go in with all the others and be donated it to the Salvoes Caloundra hamper appeal. BYO chair and blankets please.
Also remember Christmas in the Park at Bells Reach on Saturday Dec 8th 5pm – 8.45pm. There will be Santa, food stalls, a movie, carols, activities for kids and fireworks at the end. BYO chairs or blankets. Anyone with pets that are not so fond of loud noises, it might be a good idea to treat them to some inside time or check your yard is well secured to prevent them from escaping.
