Rosemary Milson from Tamworth writes about the Adventure Playground.
I FEEL moved to write this.
It was a wonderful experience to be one of the volunteer “brigade” who have worked over a period of a week, three shifts a day, to erect the Tamworth Adventure Playground in Endeavour Park.
The park itself is very special asset for the people and visitors of Tamworth.
A park of native vegetation, birds and some animals maintained by a group of dedicated volunteers who work every week maintaining and developing the well-cared-for environs. A delight to visit always.
The Adventure Playground is a vision and plan of Charles Impey, who was instrumental in this when it started five years ago.
He told me the playground committee had been wonderful. He was most grateful to them. It ensured his dream became a reality.
I hear Charles has been fantastic, too. All volunteers were working constantly, but the atmosphere was great. Happy to be productive and sharing the load for something special. Workers ranging in age from the young to, shall we say, more mature, worked, welcomed, constructed, built, laboured, painted and catered.
TAFE allowed their students to participate and work every day.
No doubt they enjoyed using their skills and benefited from this experience.
Businesses were generous giving resources, food and even personnel to assist. The bell went promptly at noon for lunch, breaks for morning and afternoon tea or coffee provided by a business in town.
A very big thank you and a hearty congratulations to all who contributed in anyway. Much generosity of kindness and help has made it an outstanding achievement and an asset, for children, able-bodied and disabled, can safely use this exceptional playground. Well done.
It is a tribute to the spirit ofTamworth.
