Instagram post 2101353704491250654_7777718102 Police, Community and Resuable Bags !! A huge shout out to Police Liaison Moira Davis and the community group Zillmere Sews which is currently making reusable  Boomerang Bags. These bags are made from generous donations from the police force and community. Boomerang Bags are a great way to save our environment, these bags will be available at Zillmere Festival on the 14th of September. 
Another project the sewing group are working on is Uniforms 4 Kids. They create clothing for young children by recycling old police uniforms. 
Police Liaison Moira Davis is encouraging for multicultural members of the public to join the group. It's a great way to engage with others and create something meaningful. 
Keep up the great work!! #boomerangbags #bagban #qldbagban #groovybags #qps #zillmere #zillmerefestival #brisbane #zillmerecommunitycentre #zillmeresews #uniform4kids #ecobags #police #community #reusablebags
