On Sunday the 25th of September, REF invited a number of our local residents to check out the progress in fitting out the hub. It was a successful morning with some great discussions and exchanges of ideas. The next public event will be a Bushcare day on the 16th of October 2022, when we will be targeting some of the weeds in the adjacent area to the hub. It will also be another chance to engage with our local community over a cup of tea.
12th August 2022: The Deception Bay Environmental Hub has officially been handed over to the Redcliffe Environmental Forum Inc.
L to R: Mayor Peter Flannery, Councillor Sandra Ruck, State MP Chris Whiting
On the 12th August 2022, the Redcliffe Environmental Forum Inc commenced a lease with the Moreton Bay Regional Council covering the building including a meeting place, a canteen and a deck area overlooking the shores of Deception Bay. REF would especially like to acknowledge the work of Mayor Peter Flannery and Chris Whiting MP who commenced working on this project over ten years ago. REF would also like to thank the work of local Councillor Sandra Ruck and the staff of the Moreton Bay Regional Council for completing the project.
REF to commence fit-out of facility
REF Inc will commence the fitout of the building including the provision of furniture for the meeting place and provide audio-visual equipment for environmental workshops, seminars and information events. REF Inc will also start to develop interpretative resources highlighting the local environment, flora and fauna as well as the history and culture of Deception Bay and the Moreton Bay Region. The canteen will also be fitted out to allow for catering at events and meetings. There are exciting times ahead for REF Inc, our members and partners and the wonderful community at Deception Bay and the Moreton Bay Region. As we fitout the facility, we will endeavour to keep people updated on progress via this website and through our REF social media platforms including our Facebook Page at Redcliffe Environmental Forum | Facebook
