Somerset Businesses Encouraged to Register as Local Suppliers

Somerset Regional Council is again encouraging locally based businesses to use Council’s local supplier register to ensure that they are given the opportunity to quote for the supply of specified goods and services.

A local supplier is a supplier with a permanent workplace situated within the Somerset Regional Council boundary.

Local suppliers of specified goods and services as diverse as outdoor power equipment, work wear, herbicides and more, can become registered to ensure they are given the opportunity to quote via email.

To get your business listed, fill out the form under the Local Supplier Register tab on Council’s website

Somerset seniors encouraged to get active

Somerset seniors, aged over 65, are being encouraged to get active with low impact fitness classes (Movement to Music) on offer at Toogoolawah.

The classes, supervised by instructors from Somerset Health and Fitness will start on Monday, 20 July and be held in two, 10-week blocks.

Classes will start at 9.15am and go for 50 minutes followed by morning tea.

Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann said council was proud to support the classes that were being funded through the Musculoskeletal Australia and Sports Australia.

“These classes form part of Active Neighbourhoods for Older Australians Project and replaces the highly successful, Strictly Seniors Social Dancing that had to be cancelled during the height of the COVID pandemic,” Cr Lehmann said.
