Plans well un­der­way for sec­ond stage of play­ground

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

LO­GAN’S Adventure Play­ground project co-or­di­na­tor Kel­lie Chart can feel the ex­cite­ment in the air.

Now that Stage 1 of the play­ground is com­plete, with the chil­dren of the Whit­sun­days hav­ing re­sponded mag­nif­i­cently to the fly­ing fox, the com­mit­tee re­ally wants to push for the con­struc­tion of Stage 2.

The plans are to build a fort-like struc­ture at the play­ground site and the goal is to have it started by June this year.

“We’ve had lots of amaz­ing feed­back since the fly­ing fox has opened – lots of small busi­nesses want to get in­volved to make Stage 2 hap­pen a lot quicker,” Ms Chart said.

Just this week Seabreeze Tourist Park do­nated $843 from sausage sizzles they held over Christ­mas.

In prepa­ra­tion for Stage 2, Lo­gan’s Adventure Play­ground has lots of up­com­ing events and fundrais­ers in store.

Busi­ness posts for the play­ground are now on sale at $300 each.

The post is routed with the busi­ness name to make up front fence along with the hun­dreds of fam­ily pick­ets sold and there are only 29 left. They will also bring back the Ama­teurChef se­ries af­ter rais­ing more than $6000 in 2013.

The idea is that peo­ple put on their own event at home with their own friends where they can charge a set amount or ask for dona­tions.

“Last year we had ev­ery­thing from mums and bubs pic­nics, to pizza par­lours to fancy sit down din­ners,” Ms Chart said.

To top it all off, the pop-up restau­rant that raises the most money each month will win din­ner for two at Pep­pers.

Lo­gan’s Adventure Play­ground will also host a Sports­man Din­ner on May 23 at the Reef Gate­way Ho­tel with spe­cial guest NRL great Mark Geyer.
