Lockyer Community Centre celebrates

FOR the past 30 years the Lockyer Community Centre has been a shining beacon of support for those who have needed it.

More than 1000 people gathered in Crescent St on Sunday to not only celebrate the centre’s 30th anniversary but as a mark of thanks for the unwavering support.

The street was closed down and turned into a festive celebration for the Community Fun Day with market stalls, entertainment, food and kids activities all on offer. Other community groups also set up shop in the street with the SES, QFES and police adding to the festivities.

Lockyer Community Centre co-ordinator Anne James said it had been a highly successful day and a great way to mark the centre’s milestone.

“I was just blown away with the number of people who turned up and the support from the general public,” she said. “We had our fingers crossed but we didn't know what to expect crowd-wise.”

Ms James said she was delighted to see former members of the committee among the visitors.

“We were very happy to celebrate the 30 years and it was a pleasure to see a number of people who were on the management committee throughout the years also come along,” she said.

Ms James said the celebratory cook book, Tastes of the Lockyer, sold well on the day and copies were still available.
