Can you reverse park a warship?

It’s big, it’s fun and it’s made for small business - the Big Breakfast is the Hills Districts Chamber of Commerce favourite networking and charity fundraising event of the year.

And it’s happening on 12 September at the Eatons Hill Hotel.

There’s the community-minded executive as the keynote speaker who can reverse park a warship. Penelope Twemlow was 2016 Queensland Telstra Business Woman of the Year, Social Enterprise, and Not-For-Profit. And more…

“Plus, you can show off your business in front of hundreds of local businesses,” said Big Breakfast Organising Committee Co-Chair Leah Hudson. “And everyone is welcome to participate, not just Hills District Chamber of Commerce members.”

“The Trade Showcase is always a buzzing, impressive entrance to the event- and there’s still time to get a display table for your business, or book a seat to the breakfast,” she said.

“And being a charity fundraiser for local community groups, the friendly vibe is palpable.”

“Last year we raised $15,000, distributed it between 7 local charities.”

But what was the money used for?

“Over a period of around 8 months, 10 young people used this donation to get closer to their driver’s license,” said Nicole Walsh from North West Youth Accommodation Service.

“Getting a job is a major step in permanently moving away from homelessness,” she said.

“But getting your license is a major factor in keeping that job.”

“Five young people benefited from packages of five lessons, and one 25yo young mother with a 6yo child got her license with help from this program.”

Tickets are available online at . Everyone is welcome to attend.

Queens of the Desert – Sassy Seniors shake their tail feathers for Farmers

By popular demand, Hot Inspirations is returning to Toowoomba on 7 September 2018 to help our farmers by giving you a fun night of entertainment and raising funds at the same time for the Buy a Bale of Hay charity which delivers feed to where it is most needed. We often perform in bowls clubs – many of which are struggling or closing down. Everybody wins you, the farmers, the Club and us – we get to stay fit and active while having fun.

The troupe is made up of three feisty women: Joy Darmody, Rana Jewell, and Kristy Ulla. “We present a variety cabaret show and donate a percentage of all ticket sales to a charity or local community project or person – it’s a mix of solos, duos and trios performing a song, dance, comedy and instrumental to a range of music from the 40s to the 70s,” says Jewell. As one fan wrote to us: “you create a community” and another: “I love your social enterprise business model, doing good and having fun while earning a living.”

This is a show you have to experience to appreciate. So often we hear “oh my goodness if I’d known the cabaret was going to be this much fun, I would have brought more friends with me” or “No-one likes where we are heading (old age) but you make light of it and your costumes are to die for!” and “you lift our spirits!”

Jewell says: “We do both private and charity gigs. In the past 2 years, we’ve raised and donated $ 4,036.85 to various charities and local families in need. It is our dream to travel and take our show out to rural Queensland and direct to the farming community. One of our fans has already designed our banner – Lifting the Spirits of the West.”

Barbara from Tamborine Mountain adds: “it's not a show you sit back and watch up on the stage - you make us part of the show - it's like being in your lounge room at a top party!”

When: Friday 7 September 2018, Show commences 7.00pm

The rebuild and refit of our Tuckshop facilities.

Grovely Grub – Grovely State School’s Tuckshop – is dedicated to preparing high quality and fresh food at good prices. Over the last few years the student numbers have grown at Grovely State School and the facilities in the current Tuckshop are not adequate to maintain the level of service we aim to achieve. To help ensure our Tuckshop can continue to deliver delicious and nutritious food to the school community, the P&C has decided that its current fundraising goal is a full rebuild and refit of the Tuckshop facilities.

This is a big target and we appreciate all your support in helping us achieve it.

Open Home Inspection Times for This Week

Busy busy week! find my updated list of properties under contract and OPEN FOR INSPECTIONS for Saturday 5.09.09.




Last week I attended AREC the biggest real estate conference in the country where 2000 elite agents attended.  This is always an inspiring event.  This year was particularly impressive.  The most outstanding speaker for me was young Australian of the year 2005 Khoa Do. Koa is the young film director in Austrlian history to be nominated for an AFI ward best Director.  Listening to his story you know that everything is possible.

The current economic climate is a time to take action and make the most of all opportunities out there in the market place.  Don't let the doom and gloom of the media stop you.  Make it work for you. Use this time to improve your skill base and talent.  In real estate I am always attending training and increasing the skills that I have.  Just like Khoa Do take adversity and turn it into opportunity.  Be a winner.
