Refurbishment Works at Town Hall
In late March, construction started to upgrade the Sandgate Town Hall public amenities. The refurbishment will include: turning the existing meeting room into a Person With Disability (PWD) toilet for public use; upgrading the path to the PWD toilet to be compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act; and upgrading the current Cliff Street public male and female toilet amenities. Works are expected to be complete mid- 2021. During construction, the public toilets in Sandgate Town Hall will be closed. Alternative amenities can be found on Cliff Street, 400m east from the Sandgate Town Hall (at the start of Lovers Walk).

Sandgate Theatre Reunion
Sandgate Theatre Inc is hosting a Reunion for all past, present and future members. Sunday, 11 April, from 2pm. Meet the new committee, check out the new venue, enjoy afternoon tea, and maybe get involved in the upcoming One Act plays. Hawks Football Club, Lemke Road, Taigum.
Venue owner Ruben Jones said that the time was right to offer a space in the area for artists, crafters, and natural therapists to share their wisdom.
“I’ve been a Sandgate local for over 30 years and I just thought that after the events of last year, it was kind of clear to me that there’s never been a better time for people to learn and share skills, knowledge, insights, and most importantly, to have fun in the process,” Ruben said.
“There are so many immensely talented, knowledgeable individuals in our local area, as well as in Brisbane, so it made absolute sense to make an ideal venue for small workshop events in art, craft, natural therapies, knowledge, and skill sharing.”
On the types of events that will feature in the small boutique space, Ruben said that the name Sage and Mirth said it all.
“We wanted to combine what would be offered there really, and that’s sage, in terms of wisdom and knowledge, and mirth, being joyful fun and expression.”
