Stephen Bromhead , Member for Myall Lakes is pleased that  younger residents in Forster- Tuncurry will benefit from work recently completed by MidCoast Council with the insatllaion of shade structures over playgrounds at Palmgrove Park in Forster and Lone Pine Park in Tuncurry.

The work which was funded by the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund with a grant of $550,000 is now complete and offering protection from the summer sun over the playground equipment.

It was pleasing to see that the shades were able to be installed with minimal disruption to playground users.

The community have been calling for shade protection on playgrounds across the MidCoast region, and with MidCoast Council partnering with the NSW Government they have been able to deliver the projects in time for protection from the summer sun over the playground equipment.
