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 proud that his company supports local community organisations. AllRound is deeply connected to the Bribie–Caboolture–Morayfield communities. AllRound supports at least six other local clubs and organisations. These include 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

AllRound has been donating to the Bribie Woodies (the Bribie and District Woodcrafters Association) since almost their beginning in 1991. That beginning was a gathering of five friends on the patio of late founding father and president Trevor Peters. More recently, the organisation has grown to around 200 members. Now it has a permanent home in Banksia Beach. In this time, Simon’s generosity has included donating a water tank to the Woodies.

The Bribie Woodies have a proud history as well as swelling numbers. They are celebrating 20 years this year. The local wood enthusiasts have been holding an annual woodcraft competition since 1995. Trevor Peters won four first places in that first competition. He was also named the club’s very first 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.

After his passing, the community renamed Grand Champion award in honour of his achievements and enormous contribution to the club. It is now the Trevor Peters Award for Excellence. AllRound congratulates this year’s winner of the award, Des Wirges.
