Hendra Pony Club
Sewer re-lining project. Interflow have been contracted by Downer Constructions to undertake a major upgrade of a main sewer pipeline for Urban Utilities on Brisbane's northside (a large section of that pipe runs through our grounds). Works have progressed well (mostly at night) with limited impact on members.
The relining project is a very innovative solution to ensuring a much longer lifespan for sewer pipes; a big win for Brisbane rate payers.
Project information and updates are attached.

Community Living Australia (CLA) and the Nundah Community Enterprises Cooperative (NCEC): Re-gen Project
This rolling 6 monthly project is funded by the Queensland State Government's Skilling Queenslanders for Work Program. Working in groups of up to 18, new migrants and disadvantaged members of our community have the chance to learn a raft of garden maintenance skills, make local contacts and friends, improve their English language, and earn Cert II in Horticulture.
Candidates have, over the past 4 years, cleared much of our gully (removing invasive weeds such as castor oil, lantana, asparagus fern and blue heliotrope), undertaken hours of mowing and whipper snipping, cutting back trees, building gardens, beautifying our grounds and have obtained numerous certificates including 1st aid, small machine maintenance, WH&S, PPE, fire extinguisher usage and many others.
We wish the current team every success in the continued battle to remove weeds and improve our grounds/pasture, and we very much look forward to your results. We also wish all the candidates every success with gaining employment at the end of the program.
North Paddock resurfacing works
Our north paddock is now a safe, flat and well grassed grazing and riding surface thanks to extensive works by the Brisbane City Council.
The old city landfill, that hadn't been capped properly some 40 years ago, has now been compacted and resurfaced providing us with much improved area.
We are extremely grateful to the BCC for undertaking this much needed project.
