THE Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council is searching for a Queanbeyan local who best represents the area.
It could be someone from the past or the present, it could be a grandparent, a family member, a coach, but not matter who it is, the Council’s program coordinator of place management, Tracey Lamont says, it needs to be someone who embodies Queanbeyan.
The winning entry will have their mural painted by an artist on a wall of the Bicentennial Hall, facing towards Monaro Street.
“This is a very significant public art project and we are asking for the community to help us select the subject matter,” Ms Lamont says.
“Think about who it is that truly represents Queanbeyan,” she says.
Canberra firefighters respond to more than 900 house and structure fires every year, and now, with winter items such as electric blankets and heaters being taken out of storage, firefighters urge Canberrans to be aware of the common causes of home fires.
