Welcome to this week’s North Harbour Blog. This week we’ve got big news on our upcoming Spring Fair and info on our new Reflections Park as well as a focus on one of our Display Village builders, McLachlan Homes.
But first, thank you to everyone who has filled in our quick, pop-up survey so far. Our aim is to ensure that North Harbour provides the best customer experience possible so if you can spare a couple of minutes to share your thoughts please do – the survey will pop up on your screen automatically and should only take 5 minutes to complete, depending on how much you want to say. Everyone who completes our survey will go in the draw to win a $50 Visa Pre-Paid card. This competition closes at 7pm on August 31st, one entry only per person.
Spring Fair – Saturday September 16th 2pm-8pm
We’re welcoming Spring with a huge event to be held in the Display Village and the Village Park. North Harbour is providing music, free entertainment, fireworks and a movie – there will also be food available for purchase and the opportunity to meet some of our community partners. Times will be finalised shortly and information will be provided on our website and Facebook page, as well as sent out to our database, so keep an eye out.
The Spring Fair will include:
The Ja Joint Bus – The Ja Joint’s Jamaican themed 1950’s London Double Decker Food Bus will be making a return to North Harbour, bringing you an afternoon of soul and spice and all things nice! The food is cooked in award winning Jamaican spices and sauces in two 65-gallon drum smokers, “low n slow taking it back to tribal days”. The Ja Joint will also be pumping out the afternoon’s tunes.
Ruby the Little Ice-cream Van will also be joining us again. Ruby is a gorgeous vintage English Soft Serve Ice Cream and Gelato van which has been lovingly restored to her original condition with a new interior fitout and Italian Ice Cream Machine.
The day’s free entertainment will include: Animal Farm, Jumping castle, Trackless train, Roving Magician, Farmyard Friends Show, Fireworks and the “Sing” movie.
We’ll also have some visits and demos from our community partners: AFL from the Moreton Lions, Touch Footy from the Caboolture Touch Association and dog training from the Dog Obedience School. So, save the date and make sure you check our Facebook page for more details – coming soon.
This week we revealed the complete plan for Reflections Park on our Facebook page – and everyone loved it! As you can see from the plan, Reflections will include:
A public art sculpture
Double picnic shelter
Tricycle / scooter path
Access to the Raff Creek environmental corridor
Play equipment including: 2 seat swing, spinner, slide, climbing wall and mega tower
