All systems go at the Riverscape project

December 30, 2009

The Gwydir Shire Council has received $20,000 for its $60,000 Bingara Riverscape Project – beautifying and landscaping the area adjacent to the Gwydir River with walkways and picnic furniture, and it is ‘all systems go’ to get the work done.

Workers busily spreading mulch

A very well attended working bee on Saturday saw well over 20 volunteers pitch in with fencing, spreading mulch and planting shrubs along the eastern end of the area.

The project is one of 13 in the Northern Tablelands electorate which will share a grant of $417,000 through the State Government’s Community Building Partnership scheme.

The projects were chosen from 55 submissions put to the state government as part of an economic stimulus package announced in the State Budget.
