Go nuts with support for next big thing

AN INDEPENDENT committee has started up to campaign for Kingaroy to get its own big peanut.

To get the campaign off the ground it needs the community's help.

The campaign has no association with any business or South Burnett Regional Council and is looking for community support first.

It's been a concept in Kingaroy for about 30 years and now the committee wants to make it a reality.

A spokesman for the Kingaroy Needs a Big Peanut campaign said the idea started with a discussion about big things all over Australia.

They realised Kingaroy didn't have its own big thing.

He said the next step was for the page to get 5000 likes and for the community to have a say on what it should look like and where they would like the big peanut to be situated.
