Forum Communicators Cr Adelia Berridge, Pam Spence and Irene Henley


Public speaking is people’s #1 fear

A great support team helps combat fears. You can rise up to give your best voice and be heard, and Forum Communicators does just that. I’ve been public speaking since 2017 when campaigning to bring a wildlife hospital to Redlands and Forum got me through that fear, and then helped me speak up as a Councillor. It’s all confidence and the Forum team from Redlands supported me at the biennial State Conference held at Wynnum Manly Leagues Club when I spoke of the female empowerment for the Baby Boomers in the 1980s. I hardly knew the room and I was not nervous because we have a good support team and we know how to combat nerves. If you would like to visit one of our monthly meetings and see the benefit of a newfound confidence, please call or write to me. We’d love you to come along and watch.

SUPER SHOW DEALS at our Cleveland Expo

We all know Redlands Coast is the perfect destination for those seeking outdoor adventures, whether it’s the bush, our islands, or the water, which is why people love us. This is also why Redland City Council was again delighted to host the Caravan, Camping, Boating and 4×4 Expo last month. With over 180 exhibitors and 14 food vendors as well as Redlands Museum included in the ticket price, it took my family all day to get through it all. Remember to sign up to Redlands Coast Alerts for free local emergency updates if you wish to opt in for Council’s emergency notification messaging service.  

Capalaba Revitalisation

Because I know it’s what my division have been asking for, it’s very exciting for me to bring you the much needed multi-million dollar Capalaba Shopping precinct at the gateway to Redlands, in partnership with Shayher Group. This exciting revitalisation project in Capalaba will transform the area behind Capalaba Central Shopping Centre into the urban heart of Capalaba. I encourage you to go on to the Council website and see the proposal as it has everything from outdoor dining with a public realm, areas to meet and do business, accommodation, business hub and more. The first stage is in Council now and will include the new library. I would love your feedback and the best thing is, the developer is funding the entire project so it’s a win/win for Redlands.


Capalaba Rocks
Cr Adelia Berridge, Colin Sutcliffe, John Shelly and twins Natasha and Deana Barnard

Our historical Capalaba Rock’s Crossing is extremely valuable for the first Tingalpa Creek bridge built 1874. This crossing played a significant part in the development of Cleveland and the northern part of Redlands. In 2002 ROTARY CLUB of CAPALABA wrote to then Cr Ray Bucknall saying Rotary were prepared to manage the area, to beautify it and preserve the remains of the crossing and erect shade areas with picnic tables. Today the area is still managed by Rotary Capalaba and the Rotarian’s Rock’s Bushcare group. We meet every third Saturday morning for breakfast and a laugh before the bushcare work. If you would like to join us one morning or bring young children for a gardening experience, please contact me.
