A Big THANK YOU to Michelle and Les and the team at Hervey Bay Security

102 Islander Rd, Pialba QLD 4655 1300 651 427

For almost 4 years they have been monitoring the Security at Z-PAC, attending the premises when the alarm goes off and checking it day and night on their rounds.  Unfortunately, we are often subject to unwanted intruders and the security system is of great deterrent and keeps damage to a minimum.

We are now upgrading our security even further and Hervey Bay Security has offered to put in all the new units at no cost!!  How generous!! Please support this local business which not only provides an amazing range of security services, but also is a wonderful support of Z-PAC Theatre!

Thanks Michelle and Les!
