The Orange Uniting Church are hoping locals will back their bid to replace the aging children’s playground on their community green.
Built nearly 30 years ago, the popular playground in the heart of the CBD is in desperate need of replacing and the project is now one of 41 across the Orange electorate hoping to win funding through My Community Projects. Public voting is being used to determine which projects will receive funding.
“We are really pleased to be selected as an eligible project and we would really like to see this very valuable place in the middle of the CBD improved,” said Reverend Andrew Cunningham.
“There is no other playground right in the CBD like this. While it is owned and maintained by the church, it is a community playground, available to everyone and we would really like to see this whole space used more. It a safe quiet place for kids to play, but it needs to be replaced.”
Replacing the playground is going to cost about $82,000. If you think it is worth funding visit mycommunityproject.service.nsw.gov.au to cast your vote or to have your say on any of the other worthy projects in contention.
Voting closes midnight 15 August.
