Beautiful day to visit the farmers markets at Cobb & Co Museum, Toowoomba.

Great to see locals supporting locals as our region kicks back into gear.

On this day three years ago, Senior Constable Brett Forte was tragically killed in the line of duty.

Today, we remember his great sacrifice and send our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends and colleagues.

The Coronavirus pandemic will be remembered as a significant time in history.

There have been some truly tragic moments. But through it all, Australians have done what Australians do best – find things to be thankful for.

It’s the stories of kindness and generosity – the special moments that have reminded us that we’re all in this together. These moments have helped us through the darker days.

When future generations look back on this moment in history, we want them to know about the good stuff. So if you have a story of kindness or generosity that you’d like to be preserved, please send it to the National Mailbox:

All eligible letters will be kept by the National Archives of Australia. Letters must be received before August 18.

It’s unconscionable for the Minister to turn a blind eye to social housing stock being rented privately, when an overwhelming number of Queenslanders need help.

The latest available figures show 423 people on the social housing waitlist in the Toowoomba Region alone.

The average wait time for a social housing property in Toowoomba is 6 months. The longest a person has had to wait for a property is 3 years.

The Minister is naïve in thinking people aren’t being forced to sleep rough or in unsafe accommodation because of the social housing shortage.

This week, we acknowledge our volunteers for the incredible contribution they make to our community.

Not only is volunteering personally rewarding, it gives you the opportunity to make a big difference to someone else’s life. That’s why it’s always been a big part of my life.

So to all the volunteers and volunteer organisations across Toowoomba – thank you! Toowoomba certainly wouldn’t be the same without you.
