Farewell for Senior Constable Kerri Edwards


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


Kerri has served as a vital connection between the local Police service and the Community, keeping us abreast of the important statistics and issues that occur in the local Mango Hill and North Lakes region.

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 at Bald Hills.

In 2017, the Progress Association also proudly nominated Kerri for the Pine Rivers Police Officer of the Year Award, which is run by the Rotary Club of Pine Rivers, for which S/C Edwards was the successful recipient. This award formally recognises Police 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.


MHPA President Laurence Christie commented, “If all Police Officers in the State were of the high calibre that Kerri has been, the Police service would be viewed in the highest esteem by the community at large. The Mango Hill Community will be forever thankful for her contributions.”

S/C Kerri Edwards is now looking forward to her new role as Officer In Charge of Cannon Hill Police Station. On behalf of Big Local and the Mango Hill Community, 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.
