The Bonner update - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views


Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Bonner! It’s a busy time of year, so why not spread some extra joy, by shopping local? We have a variety of small businesses across Bonner… butchers for your ham, toy stores for gifts, as well as cafes and speciality stores. The breadth of businesses across Bonner is a testament to the passion, skill, and determination of our community. Having run a small business, I understand the grit and resilience it takes. Currently, owners are also doing it tough throughout this cost-of-living crisis. Let’s support local this holiday season! Also, keep an eye on my social media for my ‘12 Days of Small Business’, as we countdown 12 small businesses in Bonner to support these Christmas holidays.

Get involved with B4C!

Bonner is an area full of rich biodiversity and natural beauty, so it is important we care for our home. The Bulimba Creek Catchment Committee (B4C) is dedicated to protecting, restoring, and maintaining the Bulimba Creek catchment. Since starting in 1977, the group has made an outstanding contribution to our community through their preservation services, landcare research, community engagement, and reporting. To get involved, you can shop their online store, donate to the fund, or contact their office. B4C is a great team, and I look forward to continuing our partnership into the future.

The Brightest STARS in Bonner!

Oh, what a night! My Bonner Bright Star Awards recognised some truly outstanding people in our community who have incredible personal achievements and have given back to our local community. The excellence and dedication on display was truly inspiring. I had a record number of nominations, so it was hard to narrow the selection to just one winner per category.
