  • Jack Chard Park family fun day postponed

    The Family Fun Day at Jack Chard Park, scheduled for Saturday 21 March has been postponed and will not proceed this weekend. The event was being held to encourage the community to view and comment on draft concept plans for the park while enjoying a day of fun activities with their families.

    Council continues to monitor the coronavirus advice provided by Australian and State health agencies and will consider hosting the event at a later date.

    Manager Parks and Active Communities Stewart Brawley said Council’s Parks and Active Communities team had partnered with St Joseph’s Catholic School to include children in the park planning process and hopes to keep this momentum up by encouraging children and their parents to vote online.

    “We are looking at developing an online survey on Council’s Your Say Tweed engagement website, where people will be able to view images of the proposed park upgrades and vote on their favourite option,” Mr Brawley said.

    While an online engagement does not include a free BBQ and children’s activities, it will allow members of the community of all ages to vote for their preferred design choice, while offering the 160 people who had booked free tickets for the family fun day, an alternate way to have their opinion heard.

    Council will advertise the Your Say Tweed engagement page in the coming weeks. In the meantime, why not sign up to have your say on a number of Council projects at www.yoursaytweed.com.au/register

    Almost 100 Fingal Head locals attended a Family Fun Day in Fingal Foreshore Park to chat with Council staff about their ideas and designs for the park including the choice of new play equipment.

    The event also enabled locals to have their say about what they would like to see for the future of Fingal Head.

    The community enjoyed a free BBQ and kids activities on a beautiful day on the Tweed coast.

    Council would like to thank all of those who attended the event and took the time to provide their input to help create a space that the whole community can enjoy.
