Burnett Heads Progress and Sports Association has received new technology which will keep locals better connected, along with marquees and a barbecue.
Burnett Heads Progress and Sports Association president Daniel Walshaw said the new equipment included a computer and tablet, along with a projector and a screen, which would be perfect for community movie nights, purchased thanks to a Gladstone Ports Corporation grant.
“There is a lot that goes on in this hall, so these are welcome additions,” he said.
“We have started doing community catch ups every quarter, which this equipment will come in handy for that, in the first weekend of November.
“This is something we do with local community groups out here – where we bring them into the hall and allow them to showcase what they do and what is going on.”
Daniel said Coral Coast Rotary also donated a computer to Burnett Heads Progress and Sports Association, which would be used in the community internet kiosk.
“We have subcommittees, including CLAG, Over-50s Social Club, and we are currently getting the youth group, and the business network, up and running again also,” he said.
“The community hall here is shared by a variety of community groups, and everyone can use it.”
Daniel said each year the Burnett Heads Progress Association held community events including the annual Australia Day barbecue breakfast, and plans were now in place for the upcoming Milbi Festival event.
“The new marquees have our logo which is nice and bright, and they will come in handy for our community barbecues,” Daniel said.
“We have just shy of 100 members, and we are always looking for new members to join – they can just come along to one of our meetings.”
