 Community: Creating New Pathways

RidingNew Bike BridgeThe new Rickertt Road Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge, Ransome was officially opened Thursday of last week and Sunday 30th July marked the celebratory community opening with an organised community bike ride across the newly established path. The shared pathway runs from Thorneside Rd and over Tingalpa Creek to connect the Moreton Bay Cycle way between Brisbane and Redland Shire. The project was jointly funded by Brisbane City Council, Redland Shire Council and the Queensland Government over the last two financial years.

It was great to see both young and old taking part. Amongst the ‘back markers’ of the group was three year old Holly who did exceptionally well completing the 7k ride.

A large and diverse crowd of people met at the bridge entrance on at the park opposite Thorneside Train Station. Professional cyclists, councilors, adults and children had bikes at the ready, all geared up and rearing for a 10:30am start.
The ride ran at a leisurely pace following the 7km route across the new Bridge and along the Moreton Bay Cycleway to arrive at the Manly Harbour Rhythms Festival around 11am.

New Bridge

A wholesome and active event was the perfect means to celebrate the bridges new life and many families took up the opportunity to come together and join in the beneficial and invigorating activity.
After working up an appetite all participants were treated to a free sausage sizzle as they made their way up to the festival ready to relax to the soothing rhythms of Manly.

Cr Helen Abrahams, Chair of Environment and sustainability is a regular four day commuter cyclist often making the decision to ride to work and back. Cr Abrahams believes bike riding to be an excellent and reliable mode of transport.
“It’s good for the planet and great for your body as well. It’s a great way to keep healthy and fit”

The future of the pathways looks long as council have plans to expand the path to cover the whole of the Moreton Bay area, with hopes to run right to the Goldcoast.
The bridge also incorporates two fishing platforms for added usability and to properly utilize the excellent fishing area.

 Community: Where can they go?

BABI Youth & Family SupportIt’s become a sad routine. Recently, BABI Youth and Family Support was forced to turn away three more young people seeking crisis accommodation.
The young people aged 14, 17 and19 were given a single night’s supervised accommodation in a local motel, while BABI workers desperately sought a transfer to the nearest refuge at Mt Gravatt. No vacancy was available, and alternative accommodation is still urgently required.

Crisis accommodation is scarce because it is expensive to operate, requiring 24 hour staffing. BABI is only funded to provide medium term accommodation under the Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP).

“In 2004/2005 we were forced to turn away 440 young people with 129 dependent children. Some 73 of those children were under five years of age,” said Di Fletcher, President of BABI.
“Let me be clear about this. These are not young people leaving home on a whim. Typically, they’re young people from our local community dealing with traumatic personal situations. Many have children of their own.”

 Community: Single Dads Meet

Community InfoDavid Maynard is the single father of three young kids as well as the founder of the newly established, Single Dads Group. The idea came about after his unproductive search for a playgroup that consisted of other single dads just like him. After a trail period of many playgroups in the area, he found them all to be dominated by women and, like many other single dads have before him, found this to be an intimidating experience. Discovering there were no actual single dads groups available in Queensland, he took the matter into his own hands.

The group has grown steadily with a number of dedicated regulars, this being only his fourth meeting for the program. His huge response from fathers in similar situations shows what a large demand there actually was. The support from companies such as Workforce Solutions, who funded a lot of their BBQ’s and outings, has been very encouraging. Their most recent event was a Single Dad’s fishing trip in which fathers brought their children along to partake in a days-fishing excursion. All the boats and a lunch were provided free of charge for the day.

The group has also organised trips to Movieworld and various other activities.
His next meeting is to be held tomorrow (Tuesday), 3:00pm at the Silky Oaks venue, Manly Road. All single dads are welcome and encouraged to come along and share in the organisation of the next outing. For more information phone David on 0415 304 689.

BABI Youth & Family SupportMilestone for Passionate PartnershipUrsula Wilkinson believes passionately in BABI and the power of community-business partnership.

 Community: BABI Rallies Against Cuts

BABI Youth & Family SupportHomelessness RallyDraped in blankets to highlight the plight of homeless people forced to sleep rough every night, BABI staff recently joined hundreds of other homelessness workers and activists from around South East Queensland to rally against funding cuts.

With a quarter of the nation’s homeless population, Queensland receives only 16.6% of Commonwealth funds for accommodation and support.

BABI fears this funding may be further reduced, forcing Wynnum Manly’s only local provider of accommodation for the homeless to cut vital services.
