    With three large events so far this year, Cecil Plains has been a hive of activity starting with the Australia Day celebrations at the Cecil Plains pool. A large crowd gathered at the pool for a great breakfast cooked by the Progress Association and to recognise the hard work of this year’s Australia Day nominees. This was followed by Summer Tunes on 10February with a great day down on the banks of the Condamine River where more than 100 locals enjoyed the music of Toowoomba band Tux. Just two weeks later, the “Send ‘er down Hughie” drought event was held in Henry Stuart Russell Park with more than 200 locals enjoying a free barbecue, children’s entertainment and the wonderful band Special Guest. A great night for the drought-affected community with lots of positive feedback.

    You couldn’t have scripted a better ending to the Crows Nest Drought fun day, Send 'er down Hughie. The 600-strong crowd enjoyed the festivities organised by Toowoomba Regional Council and sponsored by the Queensland Government's Community Drought Support Package before a heavy shower of rain fell to rival even the greatest of fireworks shows. There were jumping castles, Laser Skirmish, Inflatable Boxing and face painting, heaven for the many children who attended. The Crows Nest Show Society along with the 2019 Showgirls provided a barbecue and bar for all to enjoy, while Special Guest entertained the crowd with a variety of musical hits.

    Centenary Park in Crows Nest could have been mistaken for the Gympie Country Music Festival on Sunday 3 February.

    Killin Time, Gympie Music Muster Talent Search Band for 25 years, performed as part of Council’s Summer Tunes program ensuring a variety of favourite country songs filled the air.

    A number of Crows Nest residents packed their picnic baskets, dusted off the folding chairs and even had to search for the umbrella as the misty rain fell as they enjoyed listening to the sounds of Killin Time.

    It was a day enjoyed by many.

    Thanks to the Queensland Government’s Drought Support Package funding, TRC’s Community Development team brought the Festival of Small Halls Summer Tour to seven small towns across the region, with all funds raised from ticket sales and catering going directly to the local hall committees. The concert brings international, national and local musicians to perform for one night of music and fun and is produced by the team that co-ordinates the Woodford Folk Festival.

    The festival rolled into Westbrook in November, bringing Australian artist Lucy Wise and Canadian artist Old Man Luedecke. Fifty people turned out to enjoy the night, which included a barbecue, bar and free jumping castle for the children. Many thanks to CDO Andrew Spradbrow for his work with the Hall Committee to organise the event and to the other TRC staff who lent a hand on the day.

The concert brings international, national and local musicians to perform for one night of music and fun and is produced by the team that co-ordinates the Woodford Folk Festival.

    The Thornville Hall sits perched above the New England Highway in the heart of farming country, where it has overseen the changes in the community for the last 78 years. With a population of 26, the Hall Committee was stoked when the final attendance tally for the festival reached 106. The children enjoyed the free activities which included face painting, jumping castles and a visit from Santa and his sleigh. It was a wonderful celebration for the local community.

    Thornville Hall was the last of the Summer Tour performances in the TRC region with Australian artist Lucy Wise and Canadian banjo songster Old Man Luedecke. Congratulations to CDO Lisa Goodman for her great work supporting the local committee with the event, and to the other TRC staff who assisted on the day.

    The Cambooya Christmas Party was held on 15 December 2018. The event was run by the Cambooya Hall in conjunction with Toowoomba Regional Council and had a free jumping castle, face painting, magician, ice blocks, markets and even Santa came along! This is the second time the event has been run and was even more successful than the first, with about 300 people attending the relaxed family event. Unfortunately, the free children’s outdoor movie was cancelled due to the rain but it will be held on the 9March 2019 in the Cambooya Hall.
