CPLHG Fortnightly eNews #2

News of the Coopers Plains History Group’s Dutch History Cafe project made it into local online news and radio recently.

The Sunnybank Hills News and Mt Gravatt News ran stories on the call to preserve one of the last remaining houses and turn it into a community history cafe and community orchard.

Simon Cole and Paul Budde were interviewed on local radio in English and Dutch. ABC Radio Brisbane’s Queensland Afternoon show hosted by Katherine Feeney called Simon in to talk – a year to the day since he last was on talking about the same topic. To listen, go to 2:44:00 ~ 2:55:30 (11 mins and 30 seconds).


Paul Budde was also interviewed on radio following interest from the Dutch Radio show 4EB and is available on SBS Dutch news.
