This year's Mayor's Charity Golf Day once again raised significant funds to support a local charity that contributes to the wellbeing of our local community. This year's recipient is REAP Cairns, a fantastic organisation that rescues food that would otherwise be wasted and delivering it to a range of local organisations to help feed those in need. Mayor Bob Manning this morning met with coordinator Jana Gorski to congratulate her and her team of volunteers on their great work. Big thanks to everyone who participated in the golf day - you helped to raise almost $10,000 toward this great cause.

This is the sad aftermath of a fire that destroyed one of the bridges on the Southern Cycleway at Woree. The bridge over Moody Creek was installed 2 years ago and the path has been well used since it opened. Sadly, the bridge is now closed and we're not sure when it will be re-opened. This act of vandalism results in a cost to our community, both in dollar terms and through the loss of much-loved community infrastructure. If you have any information on this incident, please contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 .

In case you've been wondering what these guys have been up to on Florence Street.... This is called asphalt stamping. Steel stamps are heated to 150 degrees Celsius, then pressed into the pavement to create patterns. The finished product will have a charcoal colour with white flecks through it :)
