2021 AGM postponed

History Redcliffe’s 2021 Annual General Meeting was scheduled to occur on Friday 6th August. This falls in the recently extended lockdown period. As such, we have now postponed the AGM.

We are endeavouring to reschedule this important meeting for later this month. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

History Redcliffe is committed to ensuring the health and safety of all our members, guests and visitors.

Further updates will be posted here as they come to hand.

July 2021 meeting cancelled

After this morning’s Queensland COVID-19 announcement History Redcliffe Management Committee agreed to cancel this Friday’s General Meeting.

We thank you for your understanding and assure you this step was taken with your health and safety as our priority.

At this time we will be monitoring the situation with the intention of going ahead with our Annual General Meeting (currently scheduled for Friday 6th August).

Further updates will be posted here as they come to hand.

 

Notice regarding meetings

Due to the impact of COVID, History Redcliffe has not been able to secure a consistent venue since March 2020. We are pleased to announce that we will be returning to the Redcliffe Library Meeting Room for the next three months (July, August and September).

In order to achieve this, we have changed our meeting schedule so that we will now be meeting on the FIRST Friday of the month.

Please note these new dates:

  • Friday 2nd July – Michael Beck: Bird watching
  • Friday 6th August – Annual General Meeting
  • Friday 3rd September – Selina Clark: Redcliffe Museum

Remember to check here and our Events page for updates for the latest information about dates, venues and speakers.

April 2021 meeting cancelled

Due to COVID-19 regulations, History Redcliffe regrets that we must cancel our scheduled April members meeting. The health and safety of our members, visitors and guest speakers is paramount.  We anticipate a return to normal later this month.

In the meantime, head on over to our Newsletters page and check out the latest Humpybong and After as well as our archive of issues.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your understanding.

Book launch postponed

Following today’s announcement from the Queensland Premier regarding the 3-day lockdown, it is with regret that we must postpone the scheduled daytime launch of History Redcliffe’s latest book, Memories of Margate. We will look forward to rescheduling this in the near future and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The year ahead

2020 is well and truly behind us now and we’ve been working hard to plan a year of events and activities that will make up for the lockdowns of last year.

Join us next Friday (12th February) for the first members meeting of the year. Robert & Russell Turner will be speaking about the links between Bulimba and Redcliffe.

Keep an eye on our page for the latest updates and news about history happenings in and about Redcliffe.

Walk With Me

History Redcliffe supports Dementia Action Week: 21-27 September, 2020

Beginning on World Alzheimer’s Day, Dementia Action Week is our annual chance to start a conversation about de-stigmatising dementia; a collection of cognitive impairment symptoms affecting about 400,000 Australians and over 46 million people worldwide.

Because it’s heavily stigmatised and looked down on in our communities, dementia is often hidden away or not spoken about, especially when those affected are most in need of support.

This Dementia Action Week, it’s time to get talking and start the process of de-stigmatising dementia.

 

How to participate

Participating in Walk With Me 2020 is easy. Just head out for a walk in your local community during Dementia Action Week (21-27 September 2020), take a picture with the purple poster included in this pack, and post it to the Moreton Bay Dementia Alliance Facebook event page (Walk With Me 2020) using the hashtags #DestigmatisingDementia and #Walk With Me2020.

Register today at mbwalkwithme.com.au and show your support for those living with dementia.

September Meeting Cancelled

Following additional COVID-19 restrictions for the greater Brisbane area (including Moreton Bay Region), History Redcliffe regrets that we must cancel our scheduled September members meeting. The health and safety of our members, visitors and guest speakers is paramount.

Our next newsletter will be out soon so we look forward to keeping in touch with our members in that way. We look forward to resuming usual activities and meetings when it is safe and prudent to do so.

Thank you for your patience and stay safe!

Looking forward

As the various stages of COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed and rolled back, we are looking forward to resuming our normal meetings and activities. History Redcliffe is committed to the health and safety of our members and friends. At this stage we don’t have a date for resumption of meetings but we will keep you updated with any developments.
