From Ron Gregson

Well what an introduction to the New Year.
When we first moved to Burrum Heads we were told it
was “Barren Heads” as no rain fell past the Bowling
Club!!! With 1697mm of rain in 2010 with 655mm in
December I think that particular myth has been
“washed away”!!
Other than the flooding in Traviston Way and Ivor

Heads from the storm/flood is relatively minor
compared to other areas of the Fraser Coast. Our
thoughts are with all those not only in the Fraser Coast
but all other areas affected by the floods and we wish
them a speedy recovery.
The community appreciated the efforts of Council to
address the damage caused by flooding and drainage
problems in the short term and look forward to the
community being consulted in finding a long term

forwarded to FCRC.

to assist with the installation of electrical equipment in
the new SES “shed”.
Members decided to investigate the possibility of
constructing a Skate Park in Burrum Heads for the
enjoyment of the younger community. A suitable site
will need to be found and Council and possible State
Government assistance with planning, constructing and
funding will need to be organized.
It has become apparent over the last few months that…
