If there’s one thing residents of the 4017 have been discussing on social media in recent weeks, it’s mould. After weeks of rain, followed by humidity, it seems we’re all experiencing mould and damp conditions at home. Some of the solutions offered on local Facebook pages included: wiping over surfaces with white vinegar; investing in a dehumidifier; moisture absorbers in the cupboards; and even equal parts isocol and water, used as a spray for surfaces. Other suggestions included: clove oil and water; leaving “jumbo chalk” around the house and when it changes colour, put it outside to dry before bringing it back in again.

Do you have any tips for getting rid of mould? If so, email them to Bramble Bites so we can share with our readers!


State MP for Sandgate, Stirling Hinchliffe, has announced the Sandgate and District Youth Tennis Association is set to receive $78,291 to upgrade their lighting to lux 250.

“This funding is a part of the more than $9.7 million which has been approved to 104 Queensland sport and active recreation organisations and local governments so they can build or upgrade their playing facilities as part of the Active Gameday Projects fund,” he said.

“The State Government is committed to providing our community with funding and support for minor infrastructure projects which make the place we live, that little bit better.”
