This week we meet the ‘gleeks’ from the Wynnum Glee Club, who are a crew of lovely people who get together once a week at the Wynnum Community Hall and belt out song tunes. The gleeks were a fun bunch to chat with and take photos, and you can see that Kerrie is providing an environment that is supportive and such great fun!

Hi All, I hope you are having a great week! Thanks for the fantastic response from last week's post, if you haven't already, do drop by and say hi to Mali at Cedar & Pine!
A sneak peak of tomorrow's post, where we meet a local of 70'ish years, who shares a rich history including his grandmother being born on a dingy trying to get from Moreton Island to Brisbane, sand garden competitions along the waterfront and boxing at the Gordon Club in Florence Street.
He is also very handy, at many things including leatherwork.
This week we meet Mali from Cedar & Pine. This bar is a gorgeous space in the heart of Wynnum! If you haven’t been here, you must, as it feels like a destination that you would travel to at Bulimba or New Farm, and here it is in Wynnum.

Hope your week is treating you well! We here at When in Wynnum love dogs, and there will be pics posted about the dogs we come across in the area from time to time, as well as the regular weekend larger form posts.
Meet Charlie! She is a nearly 11yo chocolate lab, who loves waterfront walks and stopping every 5 paces to sniff something new
Hi all, I hope you are all having a great weekend, whether out and about, or rugged up with a book / netflix
This week we visit a house in Wynnum, Bellis, which is owned by well-known Gardening Australia presenter, Jerry Coleby-Williams and is an amazing and affordable sustainable garden. I attended the open day, this morning with my Mum and my bride, and it was fantastic to see what can be achieved on an average size block.

This week we meet Akiko McDougall, who I met at an Illuminations festival organising meeting a few years back (I wasn’t involved in the festival, but was considering at the time). I recall her warm welcome, and her following up, always with a friendly smile, and good intent.
I then caught up with her at various local events, including Saturday parkruns. It was great to speak with her about Japan, as I was travelling there with my family a couple of years back. I coincidently... happen to be in Japan at the moment as I post this 🙂 I love Akiko’s enthusiasm for the local area, and she is involved in various events and activities that contribute to the great area that we live in.
Thanks Akiko for letting me chat, coffee and taking a few photos 🙂
This week we are posting early, to honour those who have served our country and New Zealand, and to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
I attended a few services in the area and the Wynnum parade. I enjoyed chatting with friends at each of the services and meeting Tony, a member of the Wynnum sub-branch, while we waited for the service to start. Manly, Wynnum and the NASHOS service at Darling point were all well attended.
I must say that every time I hear a bugle playing... the Last Post, it raises the goosebumps!
Early edition out this week, to honour our servicemen and women on ANZAC Day. Great attendance at the local services this morning. Don't forget the parade at 9:00! I will post later this afternoon.
