South East Queensland’s Best Skateboarders Set to Roll into Flagstone
The top skateboarders in South East Queensland are set to compete at the Flagstone Skate Park on Sunday 6 December and the Flagstone community is invited to join in the celebrations, thanks to a joint initiative between Peet Limited and Australian Skateboarding.
The event marks the end of the Australian skateboarding season and will feature pro skateboarder and Australian Skateboarding Ambassador for Indigenous Affairs, Josh Weribone, who will be on hand to rev up the crowd and share his energy and love for the sport, while offering support to competitors competing in the open, women’s, under 12’s and under 16’s street competition.
The free community event will bring skateboarding enthusiasts, their families and the community together in a COVID-safe environment and feature fun for the whole family, including live music and catering by Domino’s Flagstone from 4pm.
Service of Remembrance
2020 has been a difficult year for so many people, but when you have lost a loved one, suffered a miscarriage, experienced the death of a child or friend, then the holidays can be even more difficult. The pressure to be happy and put a brave face on can be overwhelming and the busyness of the season makes it hard to journey through grief and loss.
We’ve created a one hour Service of Remembrance so that this Christmas time you can take a moment, pause, remember, celebrate and grieve your loss. It doesn’t matter whether this is your first Christmas without someone, whether anyone is even aware of your loss or whether you’re grieving a family member who passed away a long time ago, all are welcome.
The service is one hour long and will have songs, moments of reflection and time for you to pause and remember the person you have lost. Each family unit attending will receive a gift pack to bring hope to you through the holidays and there will be a light supper after the service. Everyone is welcome and it would be our honour to host you and your family this Christmas time.
To make the service more personal to the people attending we would love to include a picture and name of the person you are remembering during a section of the service. Please fill in these details upon booking tickets and email a picture to email@example.com. If you don’t have a picture or name of who you are remembering (due to miscarriage or early baby loss) you are welcome to include scan pictures (if available) or a picture/name that has meaning to you.
