Central Parklands News Update

Updated January 21,  2023

News

AGM: 22nd February 6pm. A notice about issues will be sent out during January for the community to cast votes. Once again, this will be by electronic voting, so no new motions will be taken from the floor. We are still short one  position on the Committee and may have to take nominations from the floor if this is not filled before the meeting. Please e-mail BC Systems if you are interested in nominating. All the Executive Positions have been filled.  

.

There have been some recent safety issues around the pool and spa. Please note jumping is not allowed in the pool area and please supervise children at all times.

No amplified music is allowed in the common areas including around the pool. This disturbs the other users and the local residents. Please use headphones whenever possible.

There is a nest of stingless bees residing near the tennis court. These are completely harmless and we would like them to remain to pollinate flowers and plants in the area. There is a sign showing the location along the path to the Rec Centre. Please watch them but leave them alone.

A few people have been using the disabled facilities and leaving it wet and unclean. We would remind residents the disabled facilities are for the express use of disabled residents and visitors only. There are other facilities for the rest of the Central Parklands community to use without the need to use the disabled facilities.

It has been decided that the cut off for issues to be discussed at the monthly Committee meeting is now 1 week before the committee meeting. After that it will go through to the following month. This is to ensure there is sufficient time to process the issue and for the committee to consider it.

There is now a new Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for residents use, in the Rec Centre ground floor area. This is a fully automatic unit for assisting in an emergency with anyone with a heart issue. Please make yourself aware of its location when you are next in the Rec Centre. It could save a life.

Minutes of committee meetings can always be accessed via the portal 

Greg is looking for more BCC Waste Vouchers, if you have some spare. Please drop them up to him.

Social Activities

The first Trivia Night is being held at the Rec Centre at 6:00pm on Sunday 5th February for a 6:30pm start.  Steve will once again be providing a BBQ from 5:30pm. Costs are $5pp for trivia, $5 for burgers and $3 for sausage sandwich. You can book individually or a table of six. Coffee, tea and lemon cake will be available for free. All other drinks are BYO. Send an email to Bart on centralparklandssocial@hotmail.com with the names of attendees and whether you are partaking of the BBQ (for catering purposes).

Trivia nights will happen every second month, on the first Sunday of that month. If you have ideas for social activities on the "off" months, please contact Bart on the above e-mail.

We are also starting a Social Club. It will be $2 per year to be a member, with a name badge being supplied. Let Bart know if you want to join. If we are a club, there is a better chance we can attract sponsors and share tasks. 
 

Facilities and Grounds

All Recreational Centre facilities are available. Communal crockery and cutlery are now available for use as all restrictions have been lifted.  Residents are requested to follow directions on displayed signage and the continuing conditions as set by the Queensland Government. However, due to the ongoing health concerns, tea towels will no longer be provided. Instead, paper towels are provided for drying plates and cutlery.

There have been several noise complaints from residents about others in the Rec Centre area, tennis court and pool. Please respect other peoples rights by keeping noise to a moderate level, especially in the early morning or later at night.

There have been a number of instances of residents using the "EMERGENCY EXIT" pushbutton at the Entry Gates to the Rec Centre just to open the gates. Whenever this occurs, there is a call out required to the Deploy Security to reset the switch costing $200 each time. The Committee have decided this charge will be passed onto anyone found pressing the button when it is not a genuine emergency. Swipe cards ONLY are to be used for entry and exit.

Residents should contact BC Systems  regarding any concerns or recommendations for the gardens and facilities or to report any fencing falling under body corporate responsibility requiring repair or replacement.

Additional or replacement tags for the Recreational Centre can be purchased at a cost of $15.  These can be obtained by contacting the Complex Manager, Greg on 0412584311 or  centralparklands@outlook.com 

Please do not hesitate to contact the committee should you have any queries.  All correspondence is handled through BCSystems, use the forms available for requests or for other queries info@bcsystems.com.au
