Farewell for Senior Constable Kerri Edwards


With heavy hearts, the Mango Hill Progress Association said their goodbyes to our favourite Village Copper at the monthly meeting held last night.


Kerri has served as a vital connection between the local Police service and the Community, keeping us abreast of the local goings on that affect all of us.

Kerri has served in the North Lakes / Mango Hill area for the last nineteen years, becoming involved with the Mango Hill Progress Association (MHPA) in 2009, where she was quickly adopted as the Community Liason Officer and has been a regular to meetings ever since.

In 2016, Kerri was awarded a Group Bravery Citation from the Governor General’s Australian Bravery Decorations for her actions during a horrific truck accident.

MHPA also proudly nominated Kerri for the Pine Rivers Police Officer of the Year Award, which is run by the Rotary Club of Pine Rivers and Kerri was the recipient in 2017.

The award formally recognises Officers for not only the work they perform in their daily duties but importantly, for the role they perform above and beyond their normal duties, a role integral to working with Community, to enhance Community safety.

Laurence Christie, president of MHPA, organised some gifts, along with a beautiful cake for her send off.


“If all Police Officers in the State were of the high calibre that Kerri is, there would be great policing and community interaction.

“Mango Hill Progress Association are forever thankful for her contributions,” Laurence said.

“Make sure you keep the Village running, now that the idiot is leaving,” Kerri said, with a cheeky smile. She, along with her humour and dedication to our community, will be sorely missed!

Kerri will now be stationed at Cannon Hill. On behalf of Big Local, we would like to wish Kerri all the very best!

Capestone Shopping Centre is on it’s Way!


The commencement of Capestone’s $20 million shopping plaza isn’t far away, and when complete, will boast fifteen exciting new stores.

The shopping plaza is being developed by RR Morris Group, with construction to commence later this year, and is anticipated to take just over twelve months to complete.

The shopping plaza will include an IGA and is a significant addition to the range of amenities provided at Capestone. Capestone offers residents convenience and easy living right at their doorstep with a child carecentre soon to be delivered, as well as schools, parklands and an outdoor gym.

The ‘Kidz Magic’ child care centre is a highly anticipated addition to the Capestone community, and will provide residents with high quality, full service child care just minutes from home. Works on the child care centre commenced in April and will utilise a unique plaza and verandah design. This responds to the sub-tropical climate, and encourages children to spend more time outdoors in an environment which is useable almost all year round. The centre will accommodate 130 children from three months up to school age and will include a veggie patch, sandpits, a bike path, and natural play and discovery spaces.

The delivery of the shopping plaza and child care centre are of great added value to the thriving Capestone community. These amenities will activate Capestone’s urban hub, providing a convenient and central place for friends to meet up for a coffee, or grab their groceries.
