BEECHMONT OPSHOP CHANGED HOURS

As a result of the present situation in our community the Op Shop will now only be open on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm. On market days we shall open from 8 am to 1 pm. We can now take credit cards and we still have some great bargains as, thanks to kind donors, new stock comes in on a regular basis. However, for the time being we cannot accept any more clothing as we do not have enough space. We are always happy to see visitors to our shop even if you don’t buy anything, we enjoy talking to you. We look forward to seeing more friendly faces at the next market day on the 20th October.

I’VE GOT (REAL) MAIL

I’VE GOT (REAL) MAIL!

Beechmont and Lower Beechmont residents are urged to check their post boxes from 1 March 2019 for their BEECHMONT POSTCARDS.

QCWA and community volunteers will be delivering these special postcards to you in the next two weeks.

BEECHMONT POSTCARDS make it easy to connect with neighbours and new residents in your area. They also help to build a caring and resilient community – important in everyday life and natural disasters.

Simply fill in your postcards and drop them into the post boxes of neighbours or people you’d like to reach out to. And don’t forget to look in your post box – you might find people reaching out to you!

The Beechmont Postcard Project is an initiative of your local Country Women’s Association Beechmountain Branch. It supports Neighbour Day (Sunday 31 March 2019). Grateful thanks to Canungra & District Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank (for covering the cost of printing) and local, Emily Pearce, for the graphic design.
