Celebrating 40 years of support

Local Nundah charity, Muscular Dystrophy Queensland (MDQ), is celebrating its 40th year of operation.

Starting with a small group of concerned parents in 1978, the organisation has increased to provide a range of services for families living with muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular conditions.

Muscular dystrophy is a genetic muscle-wasting condition that causes progressive muscle weakness. It often causes profound physical disability and there is currently no cure. Today, the prognosis for many of the muscular dystrophies is greatly improved. In 1978 it was unimaginable that Ken (pictured below) would still be with us today.

With the help of families, businesses and supporters, MDQ is able to continue to provide services to Queensland families and to fundraise to support families who may not be covered by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Muscular Dystrophy Queensland is launching a Nundah Community Volunteer Committee and are looking for locals with a little spare time who would like to support the charity.

Leading the way at Clayfield Jewellery

With a rich history spanning over 30 years, Clayfield Jewellery is leading the way in the latest technology in the jewellery industry.

After moving from Clayfield to Nundah Village in 2007, owner Trevor Sim created a boutique which not only offers a wide range of jewellery pieces, but also an onsite jewellery workshop that uses the latest 3D technology.

“Our team is constantly researching and embracing the latest technologies available in the industry, including laser welding, CAD design, 3D printing, 3D scanning and x-ray for analysing precious metal,” says Trevor.

These new technologies allow the team to create clients’ pieces in the CAD and print a live 3D prototype.

“Letting the client see a 3D print of their design removes the anxiety and uncertainty of how a piece will look,” says Trevor. “In the ‘old days’ (which were not so long ago), we went straight from sketch to making the piece, relying on the communication with the client in sharing their ideas.“

“The new technology has meant that clients can have more input into creating their unique, beautiful pieces.”

When was your last check-up?

When was your last check-up?

Even dentists have to sit in the dentist chair! Dr Marc Miller, from Nundah Village Dental, had his turn in the dental chair for his regular six monthly check and clean.

Nundah Village Dental recommends that patients book a dental examination and professional clean twice a year. These regular checks help maintain healthy teeth and gums, maintain any existing work, and prevent any future issues.

Many dental issues don’t become visible or cause pain until they are in more advanced stages. Therefore, regular visits allow your dentist to find early signs of disease and work with you to fix the problem.

Nundah Village Dental has been caring for the community since 1981 and offers clients extended hours, with early morning, evening and weekend appointments available. New patients are always welcome.

Is it time for your six-month check and clean? Simply call Linda, Megan, Jess or Mel and they will schedule your appointment to have you smiling like Dr Marc.

Urban Sketchers in Nundah

Nundah Village enjoyed a visit from over twenty sketchers, who captured Nundah businesses and landscapes through on-location drawing.

Urban Sketchers is an international group that uses drawing to connect people around the world.

The Brisbane group meets each weekend in a different location to capture the area using a variety of mediums, including watercolour, acrylics, graphite pencil or charcoal.

Recently, the group visited Nundah Village, to sketch the local area and to hold a gallery outside Nundah Corner, which displayed recent artworks from the group.

Alan Innes, who organised the Nundah event, said that Nundah Village is an interesting location to sketch.

“Nundah Village is a lovely urban setting due to its winding sloping road, the unusual intersections and the landscape. It has a pleasant variety of old and new buildings. All in all, a good place to go sketching,” says Alan.

“I’m sure we’ll be back!”
