QDN - Deception Bay Local support Group
The Deception Bay Peer Support network commenced meeting in February 2017. The Group was looking for a place to meet and approached the Market Square Shopping Centre, Deception Bay for a meeting space. During these discussions, it was decided that network members would put on a community expo at the shopping Centre.
The community expo was held at centre in May with over 20 stallholders represented, including the Moreton Bay Regional Council, disability service providers, aids and equipment providers. A highlight of the event was an accessible vehicle display.
The Dancing Wheelies performed two dances and gave attendees the opportunity to learn some of their moves.
The event was a success with some great supporters coming along including Luke Howarth MP, Federal Member for Petrie, Cr Koliana Winchester and Cr Peter Flannery from the Moreton Bay Regional Council, Brendan from Chris Whiting MP for Murrumba office and Kara Thompson, candidate for Redcliffe.
Putting on an event like this take a lot of time, energy and commitment and QDN would like to congratulate the Deception Bay Peer Support network for bringing the community together and making this day such a success.
