Mums seek votes for bush funding

Spurred on by local mums Jill Willetts and Anita Manes, parents have formed �The Friends of Palmyra Bush Park� to gain supporters to vote for them in an effort to win a share of $50,000 from the City�s popular funding initiative.

The group hopes to enhance the bush block on the corner of Solomon and Justinian streets in Palmyra into a nature play space for children.

�We want to provide large logs and rocks for balancing, climbing and hiding behind; structures to make cubby houses and to play �villages� and a good old rope swing � a place to create,� the mums said.

�We would like this space to be for children to use their imagination like in the old days. A place where they can experience being in the bush in these days of small back yards and urban sprawl.

�And an experience different from all the structured, planned brightly coloured playgrounds on every grassy corner.�

They have also asked for people to donate their time, materials, including large logs or rocks, plus heavy haulage equipment, including a truck or loader crane.

Any offers of help can be directed to Jill on 0421 355 285 or Anita on 0419 197 422.
