Mayoral Minute | Queanbeyan Palerang Regional Council: Don’t forget to shop for a win

​Shop and Win

The Shop and Win promotion in Braidwood and Bungendore has a few more weeks left to run.

Don’t forget that a $20 purchase at a participating store allows you to receive an entry into the draw.

The $10,000 prize pool for each town will be drawn at the Community Christmas Parties, in Braidwood on Friday, November 30 and in Bungendore on Saturday, December 1.

Lions Club Bookshop and Queanbeyan Christmas Cave

It was great to officially open two pop-up stores on Monaro Street, Queanbeyan.

As part of the council’s Places and Spaces initiative, which aims to revitalise under-utilised spaces, the Queanbeyan Leagues Club has offered the space free of charge for these shops.

The Queanbeyan Lions Club has opened a community bookshop and right next door is the Queanbeyan Christmas Cave, selling all sorts of Christmas accessories.

Check out the stores at 146 and 148 Monaro Street, Queanbeyan.

Captains Flat community facilities

Outdoor exercise equipment has been installed at Captains Flat as part of the Stronger Communities Fund project to upgrade community facilities.

The project has included planting of a fruit tree grove, new playground equipment, restoring a horse watering trough, and new bins and shelters.

The final aspect of the project is to paint the toilet block, with a mural artwork to be created.
