We know Queenslanders love a good set of Christmas lights and our region really goes all out at this time of year with plenty of homes in Burpengary East, Caboolture, Morayfield and Deception Bay making the “must see” lists for 2017.
Families magazine has compiled some great lists with maps and addresses of the best Christmas light shows around – all free and fun to look at, for kids of all ages! https://www.familiesmagazine.com.au/christmas-lights-brisbane/
Our North Harbour community is getting into the Christmas spirit too, can’t wait to see what they come up with!
North Harbour parkrun A Great Success
The first North Harbour parkrun was held on Saturday 25th November with runners setting off at 7am. This launch is a big event for Queensland parkrun and the Commonwealth Games Legacy Program as the North Harbour parkrun is the first Queensland site to benefit from The Embracing 2018 Legacy Program’s partnership with parkrun to bring 20 new sites to Australia. The brand-new parkrun locations will be rolled out in the lead-up to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).
The North Harbour parkrun coordinator Connie Isherwood said, “Thank you to all who came along to the launch. 222 people ran or walked the course with 35 people attending parkrun for the very first time. Welcome to the parkrun family. There were also a further 30 spectators and volunteers at the launch.
“I have been Co-Event Director of Central Lakes parkrun since its inception (December 2015) and have seen that community develop into a vibrant, inclusive and encouraging one. People meet together, create and foster new friendships and discover a sense of belonging and purpose. Everyone who participates, or volunteers always enjoys parkrun. It quite simply changes lives.
“This is what I want for North Harbour parkrun and for the local community. The best thing is, you don’t have to be a seasoned runner to take part. Young and old, walkers and runners. It’s all about your own personal health and fitness journey.
“North Harbour parkrun showcases the history and beautiful natural parklands in the area and will encourage people to take their first step towards a healthier lifestyle and to engage within the local community.”
The North Harbour parkrun is a free off-road run, located in the future public park along the beautiful Caboolture River. It’s a great chance to experience this environment as well as the Moray Fields Heritage Precinct.
“Thank you to everyone who attended the North Harbour parkrun launch and a particular thank you to Connie and her team of volunteers who made the launch event so successful,” said Peter Lightbody, North Harbour Project Director.
“It’s a great way to keep fit and healthy in a beautiful location along Caboolture River”.
North Harbour parkrun is held every Saturday, the run starts at 7am with the briefing held at 6:45am.
