Other Current Activities (as at February 2017)

Public transport: The SC Council has no plans to reintroduce a service replacing the Flexilink programme, which ended in August 2015. It is possible to complain to the Department of Transport and Main Roads about the lack of a service - please download and use this form. We are investigating the use of school buses, other locally based vehicles, and the necessary funding to run a service with these vehicles. Failing any bus owners being able to collaborate, we are proposing to purchase a small bus and run a limited service with volunteer drivers.

Queensland Day 2018 (6 June): Queensland Government Funding of up to $10,000 is available to stage events. There is interest in Kenilworth having an event at this time. If you would like to be involved in planning this please contact us.

Council Link Sunshine Coast: This is a Council provided service to take seniors, disabled and carers from their homes to a major centre for shopping or medical appointments or any other reason. It operates across the region (including Witta and Mapleton) but not in Kenilworth. A petition to have this service extended to Kenilworth has been submitted to SC Council.

Men's Shed: We are investigating the demand for a Kenilworth Men's Shed and the possibility of establishing one with Commonwealth Building Better Regions Fund (Community Investment Stream) resourcing. This would not cover land purchase and we would be dependent on the SC Council, or a local organisation, to provide a site. If you are interested in joining or supporting a Men's Shed group please contact us.

Medical Centre: The SC Council has applied for a grant to build a new medical centre and the Chamber requested the Council to allow doctors to make use of the Information Centre building in the interim. The Council has now responded to this request (on 09/02/2017), as the owners of the building, and have agreed to allow medical services to be offered from the Information Centre Building 5 days per week from 3 to 5pm. Doctors from the Suncoast Christian Health Centre are expected to begin offering a service shortly.
