Governor-General keen to meet Peregian residents

The Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd), will visit Peregian next week to meet residents impacted by the recent fires.

The Governor-General and Her Excellency Mrs Hurley will inspect the fire-ravaged region, talk to those directly impacted, thank emergency services and volunteers, and get an update on the recovery.

Those directly impacted or who responded to the bushfires are invited to attend an informal “meet-and-greet” at the Peregian Beach Community House on Tuesday, October 8, starting at 10.45am.

The Governor-General said small communities like Peregian Beach are the “heart and soul” of regional centres.

“One of the most important parts of my job is to thank people for what they do for their community. When disaster strikes, you continually see a heartfelt response from people, who go the extra mile to help out.

“Linda and I are really looking forward to talking to people first-hand to offer our thanks to those who responded and acknowledge the ongoing recovery efforts,” the Governor-General said.

Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington said those who were impacted by the fire are welcome to meet the Governor-General next Tuesday.

“His Excellency has told us he wants it to be an open house affair, so he can hear directly from some of the people who experienced the ordeal,” he said.

“Residents have certainly shown their resilience and community spirit. This vice regal visit will help celebrate that wonderful spirit,” Cr Wellington said.

Details of the Community meet-and-greet:

Date: Tuesday, October 8, 2019.

Venue: Peregian Beach Community House, 255 David Low Way, Peregian Beach.

Time: 10.45am- 11.45am.
