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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
