New park furniture at Bligh Park Community Centre Precinct

Local residents visiting Bligh Park Community Centre Precinct this weekend will appreciate the new park furniture that has been installed recently.

Hawkesbury South Lions Club raised $2794 for park furniture as part of their Centenary Project, with Hawkesbury City Council contributing $5000 for the concrete slab and installation.

Hawkesbury Mayor, Councillor Mary Lyons Buckett joined members of Hawkesbury South Lions Club and local residents, to unveil an official plaque at the Precinct on Friday, 1 December 2017. The plaque acknowledges Hawkesbury South Lions Club.

“Thanks to the generous donation from Hawkesbury South Lions Club, everyone can enjoy this new furniture which makes this Precinct an even more pleasant place to relax with family and friends,” the Mayor said.

“This year marks the 100 year anniversary of Lions Clubs International, and it’s great to see our local Lions Club thinking of this area for their Centenary Project.

“Thank you to everyone who donated money to Hawkesbury South Lions Club, and to all the members and volunteers of the Club for their continued efforts for our community.

“It’s wonderful to see real partnerships between Council and local organisations that are strengthening our sense of community.”
