brand new playground is being opened on October 20 for Ulong youngsters and
visitors – thanks to the efforts of the Eastern Dorrigo Showground and
Community Hall Management Committee and Council.
first stage of the playground, which features springers, two slides, landscape
play features and a picnic table was built with grants from Council’s Community
Infrastructure fund and the Southern Phone Company.
might be on the edges of the local government area, but this new facility shows
that the village’s needs are as much at the heart of what we do as any other
part of Coffs Harbour,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.
none of this would have happened without the enthusiasm of the Eastern Dorrigo
Showground and Community Hall Management Committee and the support of the whole
community. They must rightly claim credit for this lovely new playground.”
Committee provided $4,000 towards a Community Infrastructure, which was matched
by Council and the Committee also successfully applied for a further $5,000
from the Southern Phone Company, of which Council is a share-holder.
Ulong community contribution to the playground is being recognised by a plaque
which also honours the late Warren McQuilty, a lifelong resident of Ulong.
next stage of the playground will include a shade sail and swing set.
