Cool & Classic ConcertEvent Date/s: Sunday 19 March 2017
Event Times: 2.00pm - 3.30pm

BLUES BY FIVE
This cool quintet Blues By Five provides an intimate style of jazz as part of the 2017 Cool & Classic series hosted by Kenmore Uniting Church at 2 pm on Sunday, 19th March. The members have played in a variety of big bands but in 2013 were asked to put together a jazz quintet for a charity fund-raiser at the Red Hill Gallery. Since then, the group has added to the traditional jazz and Latin repertoire such as “Sway” and “The Girl from Ipanema” by improvising with bepop favourites like Dizzy Gillespie and “Bernie’s Tune” made famous by Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker.
The jazz group’s line-up includes popular vocalist Ruani Dias Jayasinha, Andy Will on double bass and Eddie Nelson on drums. The final two members, Nathan Howard (piano) and Ben Langford (trumpet), have played together in bands since High School and have over 20 years’ experience in teaching and performance. All have played at the Brisbane Jazz Club and in various big bands and ensembles and are enjoying exploring the potential of the quintet format for experiment.
So, if you want a Sunday afternoon of great music in a convenient venue, come to the Kenmore Uniting Church, 982 Moggill Road, Kenmore at 2 pm, followed by a delicious afternoon tea and time to talk to the musicians, all included in the price. Discounts for all students mean the whole family can come.

BIRD WALKS – March to June 2017Event Date/s: As advertised in links below
Event Times: As advertised in links below
Address: As advertised in links below
Join us for a series of upcoming bird walks in our local catchments area, visit and revisit wonderful local sites and help us to further assess Brisbane’s inner western bird populations. Our feathered friends are exceptionally good indicators of environmental health. Some of our sites are used as temporary home during seasonal and altitudinal migration which makes all survey walks all the more exciting. Many of our sites are undergoing rehabilitation work under BCC’s Habitat Brisbane, at other sites CWCN has taken the initiative and progresses improvements with support of BCC’s CCO Program, both helped with funds from Council, State Government or other grant providers. Birds, especially small birds, are indicators of how successful we have been just yet. There is so much to learn during all walks, be it about native flora, signs of other than avian fauna, about the functioning of wildlife movement corridors, the health of our waterways, and also about threats to habitat.
Wear sturdy walking shoes and protective clothing. BYO water bottle and binoculars (of the latter we have a few on stand-by too). Lyn Cole, as always, will guide us and generously share her knowledge. Please note, some of the walks during May and June start half an hour later.

SENSORY STORIES is a vibrant new initiative where children are able to explore their environment as well as their imaginations. Greatly loved childrens’ stories are brought to life using various sensory activities and games.
Like many parents, you also may be wanting to find ways for your children to create lasting memories of playing and growing in the natural world ranter than day by day in front of a screen – SENSORY STORIES gives you the perfect place.

Sessions run for 45mins and have been developed with children under 5 in mind. Upon arrival, the children will gather in a make-believe forest and listen to the story of the day. We then move onto interactive sensory play where children can engage in feeling different natural materials, smell different materials, hear the bush around them and play with water and other fun materials.
