The Toowoomba branch started operation in January 2015 with a small meeting of local Renew members. Thus far we have hosted a number of successful events and have strong links to local groups like DDEC and the TRC.
The Toowoomba Branch’s 2020 AGM was very successful with 50 people in attendance and a very positive atmosphere. The first committee meeting is scheduled for 16th February and we have a multitude of possible activities for 2021.
Here’s our recent ‘Innovative Building Materials’ presentations by Richard Keech, Geoff Gibson and Johan Tijssen.
Due to some technical difficulties on the evening the audio quality isn’t the best, but the content is very worthwhile and we hope you find it helpful.
We run a range of activities and often hold talks at Toowoomba City Library, Level 3, Corner Victoria and Herries Streets, Toowoomba, QLD.
