Juice bar making change for good

A Caloundra juice bar is carrying out a sweet gesture for its customers.
Melon Head Juice Bar on Minchinton Street is keeping an eye on local parking meters, with staff acting as 'Meter Melons' and topping up car parks to help customers avoid a ticket.
Melon Head owner Celeste Elliott says local parking officers don't seem too upset about it.
"They're usually pretty good, if they walk past and they see someone needs some money in their meter, they'll often give me a look and I'll go put 40 cents in there to give them an extra half an hour so they can get back to their car."
Celeste says most of the people parking on Minchinton Street are locals supporting local businesses, and it's a way to help out her local community.
