BRINGING HISTORY BACK TO LIFE
Isn’t it wonderful seeing many of the local historical homes being so tenderly restored and the attention taken to maintain their heritage and charm. Perhaps some of the character filled commercial building owners could take note and really bring back the seaside charm to our main street?

KEEPING OUR SUBURB ALIVE
We have some lovely coffee shops and gift shops in the 4017 area, but what do we need to make it a vibrant shopping area, where people will come on weekends, not just for our lovely waterfront, but because we can offer more? I don’t know the answer to this question, but I am saddened when so many shops and banks are shutting down.

OUR TOWN HALL NOT SO LOCAL ANYMORE
It is great that they have restored the town hall to its former glory, but now it is getting so expensive, it is becoming a non-viable option for the local arts and community groups to access.

WHAT A SHAME!
I know it is too late, but wouldn’t it have been so great for Sandgate if they had made the current Sandgate Pool into something like Settlement Cove in Redcliffe. I was imagining a really cool swimming hole, with a little beach, small café’s and a boardwalk. This would have made the space an amazing asset for Sandgate. The public pool could have been perfectly located in the sports precinct, near the PCYC.

POEM FOR SANDGATEERS
I am referencing the poem published in the February issue of the Sandgate Guide. I would like to thank the author, Karen, for a beautiful poem about a great place. I grew up in Sandgate and my mother lived there for over 60 years. She is 91 and is now in a nursing home. I read the poem to her today and the smile on her face was wonderful to see. A great poem that truly reflects on Sandgate.
