AllRound Sponsors Local Woodcrafts
Simon Maloney, owner-director of AllRound Tree Services has been supporting the Bribie and District Woodcrafters Association for over 25 years.
Simon is justifiably proud of his company’s commitment to supporting local community organisations. AllRound is deeply connected to the Bribie–Caboolture–Morayfield communities, with at least six other local clubs and organisations regular beneficiaries of AllRound sponsorship and support of other kinds: Bribie Chaplaincy, Bribie and District Wildlife Rescue, Bribie Island AFL, Bribie Island Bowls Club, Bribie Island Junior Rugby League and Wildlife Warriors.
Water tank for Bribie Woodies
Bribie Woodies, as the Bribie and District Woodcrafters Association is affectionately known, has been in receipt of donations from AllRound since almost their beginning in 1991, with a gathering of five friends on the patio of late founding father and president Trevor Peters. In more recent years, as the organisation has steadily grown to around 200 members and found a permanent home in Banksia Beach, Simon’s generosity has extended to donating a water tank to the Woodies.
The Bribie Woodies have a proud heritage as well as swelling numbers, and are celebrating 20 years of incorporation this year. The local wood enthusiasts have been holding an annual woodcraft competition since 1995. Trevor Peters distinguished himself with four first places in that first competition and was named the club’s inaugural Overall Champion, a title that was later changed to Grand Champion. Between that time and his passing in 2006, he was named Grand Champion a further three times.
In honour of his achievements and enormous contribution to the club, the Grand Champion award was renamed after his passing as The Trevor Peters Award for Excellence. AllRound congratulates this year’s winner of the award, Des Wirges.
