What about Lo­gan?

Whitsunday Times - - YOUR SAY -

IN LAST week’s edi­tion of the Whit­sun­day Times (Page 5) there was a large “photo op” and statement re­gard­ing Can­non­vale Beach un­der­tak­ing an up­grade post Cy­clone Deb­bie.

Coun­cil­lor Ron Pet­ter­son, Mark Cal­laghan and Joanne He­nessy proudly an­nounced the de­vel­op­ment of a new play­ground.

I find this an in­ter­est­ing con­cept given that Lo­gan’s Chil­dren’s Play­ground is al­ready es­tab­lished nearby, al­beit se­verely smashed dur­ing Deb­bie.

Lisa Christofersen’s com­mit­tee has been re­quest­ing fur­ther fi­nan­cial sup­port for the de­vel­op­ment/pur­chase of equip­ment for many years from lo­cal, state and fed­eral gov­ern­ments.

Gor­geous Lo­gan Wells was a young lo­cal.

He sadly passed away from his ill­ness and his ded­i­cated fam­ily have strived for many years to es­tab­lish a play­ground for chil­dren to “shine in” and en­joy, form friend­ships and de­velop skills in Lo­gan’s mem­ory.

In­stead of build­ing a new play­ground, could fund­ing in­stead be redi­rected to Lo­gan’s Play­ground? It makes sense to me.

Kids loved glid­ing down Lo­gan’s fly­ing fox and en­joy­ing his play­ground.

Fur­ther­more, per­haps the picket fence which lo­cals spon­sored and paid for could be re­paired at gov­ern­ment ex­pense?
