Today was the announcement of the Tidy Towns winners for the Inland South East Queensland area. While Marburg did not win the award for the tidiest town, it did win in three individual categories. Marburg is now officially the Friendliest town in inland South East Queensland. Marburg also won awards for bush spirit and for its high levels of community partnerships.
Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale extended special congratulations to the “Ipswich community of Marburg which collected three awards in their own right.”
He said that “It is tremendous to see the community spirit shown by Marburg and district residents and they should be extremely proud of their strong showing in this year’s awards. Marburg residents are very passionate about their town and its history and were keen to share that with the rest of Australia through their entry in the Tidy Towns Awards.”
Congratulations to everyone in Marburg who worked so hard on this project. It would be wonderful if we could continue the effort to keep the town tidy.
Thanks must also go to Councillor David Pahlke for all his efforts on our behalf and Ipswich City Council for nominating us and supporting our campaign.
