I have developed www.aus4017.com as a pilot (trial) community website portal for the Australian 4017 Postcode, covering the Brisbane suburbs of Bracken Ridge, Brighton, Deagon, Sandgate, Shorncliffe and surrounds. It is currently in its pre-launch phase, so visit regularly to see how it is progressing.
It needs to be made quite clear up front that this website is not intended to undermine or duplicate any of the great work that is already being done in the postcode by many community organizations/services such as the Sandgate & District Chamber of Commerce, SANDBAG, Rotary, Lions, Vinnies and The Salvos to name just a few. It is intended to provide a further level of support and an all-encompassing level of service to the 4017 postcode and surrounding areas - a "One-stop-Shop" for the area, which supports existing community services, and also provides additional services such as Local News/Weather/Events, Local Transport Services, Local Classifieds, Auction Room, Chat Room, Events Calendar - some of which are still under construction. In fact, we are working very closely with these organizations to supplement/support their great work. Click HERE to download/print an explanatory flier.
Most importantly, in the community spirit, community support groups, charities and not-for-profit clubs such as bowls, fishing, rugby league, soccer etc. can have their own web pages FOR FREE, in which they can present their club activities, fixtures, results etc. This is in the interest of providing a proper community service. To avail of this offer, simply register with us and use the Contact Us button to initiate the process. For more information on what not-for-profit clubs contribute to the community visit Queensland Clubs website at: Queensland Clubs.
Over the coming weeks and months you will see this website grow and offer increasingly new community services and features. Please feel free to surf the site regularly to keep an eye on progress. Newsflashes will announce new features and services as they become available. We intend to have an official, formal, public launch of the website once we have the core services ready. If you want your event added to the events calendar, you must first be registered with us, then just email the details, with a contact number for verification, via the Contact Us button on the top Menu.
Likewise, if you want to add your details to the online directory, you must first be registered. Obviously, we need to be able to verify your details before approving your directory entry. The directory can be viewed by everybody (general public), but can only be updated by registered members.
