Have a sweet tooth? Love artisan bread? Flour & Chocolate has opened – and it’s just a scone’s throw from Nundah.

Flour & Chocolate has opened the second location of its award-winning patisserie in Northgate. The new store, located on Old Toombul Road, is bigger than its original Morningside location, with a larger kitchen space and outdoor seating for customers.

Since opening in January, the patisserie has proven popular with Brisbane northside locals, with a line-up of customers forming before the doors open in the morning.

The opening of the second location has been in the works for many years by Flour & Chocolate owners, locals Lachlan and Kylie Scott.

Lachlan starts most of his days in the kitchen before 2.30am and is excited to bring Flour & Chocolate’s range of decadent creations to Brisbane northsiders.

With a huge array of products, including breads, cakes, tarts, puddings, donuts, cupcakes, quiches, sandwiches, sausage rolls and croissants, the resident pastry chefs often create new flavours based on seasonal availability and their creative instincts.

Flour & Chocolate Northgate is open Thursday to Saturday, 6.30am to 2pm and Sunday 7am to 1pm.

Nundah’s Paralympic Gold Medalist Inspires Students

Nundah local and Paralympic gold medalist, Simon Patmore, has finished a speaking tour of several Brisbane schools to discuss goal-setting, bullying and resilience.

Simon, who won gold and bronze in snowboarding events at the Pyeong Chang Paralympic Games this year, broke a 16-year gold medal drought for Australia and became the first Australian male athlete to win medals at both the summer and winter Paralympic Games.

Simon attended St. Patrick’s College’s leadership retreat in October where he talked to year 11 students about resilience and leadership.

Andrew Pashley, House Dean and Teacher at St. Patrick’s College, said the students responded very positively to Simon’s visit.

“As an Old Boy of the College, Simon had an immediate connection with the boys but this connection was further strengthened by Simon’s engaging presentation,” says Andrew.

“Through the telling of his personal story, both as a past student and as an incredibly successful sportsman, Simon was able to provide his own perspective on the challenges of leadership.”

Simon also visited year 6 students at Brisbane northside schools to discuss resilience and strategies for transition as they move to senior schooling.

“Moving to senior schooling can be a challenge for some students. I spoke to the students about ways to build their resilience and how to cope with the change from primary school to secondary school,” says Simon.

“There is so much potential in the students that I visited. I can’t wait to see them achieve their dreams, just like I have.”

Meet the Agent – Tina Leveridge

Wavell Heights local Tina Leveridge has been working as a real estate agent and interior designer for over 18 years.

Tina understands the importance of styling a home in order to get a better return and is well known for her ability to present a home.

“It should be common knowledge that styling a home will ensure that you achieve a premium price,” says Tina.

“On average, your investment in staging is between one and three percent of the home’s asking prices, yet it has been proven that property staging generates seven to ten percent return on profit.”

Tina, who has seen many changes in the real estate industry, says that embracing social media and presenting the home in the best possible way is a great way to attract the right attention.

“But really,” says Tina, “what hasn’t changed is that everyone wants the great Aussie dream of home ownership. And I love matching buyers with the right property for them.”

Taking the Anxiety out of Dental Care

A new dental clinic in Hendra wants to take the anxiety and fear out of visiting the dentist.

Dr Trent Davidson, founder of Northside Dental Solutions, has created an innovative approach to dentistry to encourage more Brisbane northsiders to visit the dentist.

“65% of Australians don’t regularly go to the dentist, with the two main reasons being cost and fear,” says Trent.

With only a small number of dental services covered by Medicare, Trent understands that cost is a barrier for some.

“We have made our prices transparent and available online to reduce ‘bill shock’ at reception,” says Trent.

“We also offer interest-free payment plans so people can get the work done now and pay for it later.”

Fear is the second-biggest barrier to dental health in Australia.

Trent, who has a special interest in dental phobia and anxiety, has worked with psychologists to develop ways to introduce people to pain-free dentistry.

Trent believes that every single person should have access to quality, pain-free dental care in Brisbane.

“One person at a time, I hope to improve the dental health of the entire local community,” says Trent.

“My favourite part of being a dentist is seeing the relief in people’s eyes when they realise that going to the dentist doesn’t have to be scary or expensive.”
