Sunshine Coast Hinterland men will soon have a new place to socialise, support each other and contribute to the community with the beginning of construction on the long-awaited Mooloolah Valley Men’s Shed. The new Shed, paid for by a Federal Government grant of $250,000, is being constructed on land behind the existing Mooloolah Valley Community Centre.
This year has been a rollercoaster and our Sunshine Coast community has truly shown strength and compassion. We’ve seen and heard many incredible stories of ingenuity, selflessness and giving, which is why the 2021 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards will be so special. @CouncilSCC
