Important news for all BRASA members

Due to BRASA’s insurers advice they will no longer provide public liability insurance after 30 April 2019, no BRASA events will be conducted after that date.

The AZCAC Day ceremony at Graceleigh Park on 25 April 2019 and ‘Movies Under the Stars’ at Lower Beechmont on 27 April 2019 may be the last events conducted under BRASA auspices, unless a last minute reprieve is granted.

So come along everyone and make sure the last two events are well attended.

Letter from Greg McKenzie, BRASA President:

12 April 2019


Re:  Public Liability Insurance for Graceleigh Park
QBE, the Insurer for Beechmont Recreation, Arts & Sports Association Inc. (BRASA) has advised that due to the adverse claims history of BRASA, QBE will not renew BRASA’s Public Liability Policy when it is due for renewal on 30 April 2019. All cover including the Committee Management Defamation cover will cease after that date.

The insurance broker is currently pursuing cover from other insurers, including the option of de-coupling the Public Liability and the Defamation insurance. If this option is considered, BRASA may then only have public liability insurance.
In the event of no insurance by 30 April 2019, BRASA advises that all activities on Graceleigh Park will cease from that date until a satisfactory resolution has been achieved. 

Other activities conducted under the auspices of BRASA requiring public liability insurance, including the Beechmont Art Show, outdoor movies or Bunnings Sausage Sizzle fundraisers will also cease.

Should there be no public liability insurance in place by 30 April 2019, BRASA will also be in breach of the lease agreement with Scenic Rim Regional Council.

It is with regret that such notice is given.

The BRASA Management Committee will keep you fully informed as to the insurance situation.
If further information is required, please contact the BRASA Secretary by email at or on mobile 0407 834 559.

Yours sincerely
