Spring cleaning time and Redlands2030 is doing a fund raising GARAGE SALE with proceeds to be shared with the Cleveland Scout Group.
 
We are in need of items for the Garage Sale and Volunteers to help run the day.

We have a large trailer available and can arrange pick up of any items if needed, or else items can be dropped off at the Cleveland Scout Hall on the Friday evening (3-4pm) or on the morning of the Garage Sale.

PLEASE REPLY if you have any items you care to donate or to put your hand up to volunteer your support i.e. response to: theReporter@Redlands2030.net

More importantly come along on Saturday and meet the Redlands2030 crew and supporters.

All proceeds for Redlands2030 will be put to the campaigns like stopping the ridiculous efforts to build 3600 apartments on reclaimed land in (that is right IN the waters)  Moreton Bay.  The Toondah PDA has grown to current scale without a proper planning framework and without (any) public consultation.

So, in respect of the Toondah PDA we are calling on the Council, the State Government and the Federal government to “Stop the Rort; Fix the port”.

To help us carry the fight forward we need some modest funding and proceeds from this Garage sale will help.
