The Ferny Grove Report – December 2020

A monthly update from your State Member for Ferny Grove Mark Furner MP

Cooking up a storm with Ag students and teachers from Ferny Grove State High School for 2020 National Agriculture Day.

Thank you

It has been my privilege to be the member for Ferny Grove for the past five years. It is my honour to be given the faith to represent you in Queensland Parliament for another term. I have been humbled by the genuine outpouring of trust and affection many people have shown me during the campaign this year.

Thank you to the electors of Ferny Grove for your support. Thank you to my staff who work so hard to deliver the outcomes people need. Thank you to the tireless volunteers who have believed in what we are seeking to build.

Further, I was very fortunate to retain my portfolio of Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries and add to that Minister for Rural Communities.

Queensland grows the best clean, green produce and fibres in the world and employees hundreds of thousands of people in the agriculture sector. Our Ag industry is the envy of the world and I will never tire of telling everyone of that fact.

Queensland is well-placed to deal with the recovery from COVID because of the strong decisions by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and the dedication and professionalism of our Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young and all who have served to keep us safe.

My staff and I are now back in the office delivering the same hard work and dedication we have shown in the past to improve local services and schools and to fight to build a future where opportunity is enlarged for all.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your Member of Parliament again this term.

Lions Christmas Cake

As we approach Christmas in a year like none we have ever had before there are still some things which remain constant. Lions Christmas Cakes is one of those things. Christmas cakes have been a major fundraiser for Lions Clubs since 1965. Proceeds from the cakes are donated back into the community supporting a number of good causes from blindness prevention and aged care to youth programs and everything in between.

This year the Golden Valley Keperra Lions will be selling cakes at Bob Cassimaty Park at the following times:

     Sat. 5th December – 11.30am to 2.30pm

     Sun. 6th December – 8.30am to 11.30am

     Sun. 6th December – 11.30am to 2.30pm

     Sat. 12th December – 11.30am to 2.30pm

     Sun. 20th December – 8.30am to 11.30am
