Name the Youth Hub skate park

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/ PEOPLE -

THE Mans­field Youth Hub de­vel­op­ment is track­ing on time and bud­get, and Mans­field Shire Coun­cil couldn’t be hap­pier with the progress to date.

“With the ma­jor­ity of the con­cret­ing works now com­pleted, the Youth Hub is fast be­com­ing a re­al­ity for all the lo­cal skaters and BMX rid­ers,” said Mayor Paul Volk­er­ing

“In ad­di­tion, coun­cil has re­cently launched a nam­ing com­pe­ti­tion for this ex­cit­ing new fa­cil­ity.”

Dur­ing the plan­ning phase of this pro­ject the fa­cil­ity was branded ‘The Mans­field Youth Hub’.

This name has caused some con­fu­sion with the youth fa­cil­ity in Er­ril Street, so coun­cil is look­ing for a new name.

“Coun­cil would love to hear your name sug­ges­tions, and we have a fam­ily sea­son pass for the Mans­field Swim­ming Pool 2016/17 sea­son avail­able to the per­son with the win­ning name sug­ges­tion,” said Cr Volk­er­ing.

Name sug­ges­tions can be posted on coun­cil’s Face­book page on the post re­lat­ing to the Youth Hub name, or al­ter­na­tively, sug­ges­tions can be emailed to dan.pur­[email protected]­field.vic.gov.au or phoned through to coun­cil on 5775 8555 by Novem­ber 25.

Coun­cil will then short­list the name sug­ges­tions be­fore run­ning a Face­book poll to se­lect the fi­nal name.

For any en­quiries, please phone coun­cil on 5775 8555.

CON­STRUC­TION ABOUNDS: Mans­field’s re­vamped skate park fa­cil­ity is com­ing along nicely and is in fact re­ported to be ahead of sched­ule - but now needs a new name.

FAM­ILY TIES: All of the McGuigan fam­ily chil­dren have at­tended the Mans­field Kinder­garten, and made a point of be­ing there to say good­bye to Helen. Pic­tured is Kate McGuigan, say­ing a fond farewell to Helen.

OF­FI­CIAL: Mayor Paul Volk­er­ing of­fi­cially opened “Helen’s Gar­den”, a new gar­den to recog­nise Helen’s out­stand­ing achieve­ments over the last 30 years at the kinder.
