Bellarine North Rotary have been busy again improving your community, this time working with City of Greater Geelong. Members of our club had a one-week window to dismantle the playground at the Drysdale Reserve in Duke Street as it was to be replaced with a new version.
Recycling is important to our club and this program enables the playgrounds we no longer need to be photographed, labelled, dismantled and sent overseas. This playground was earmarked to go to Sri Lanka, the photographs and labelling help in re-assembly. What joy will the children in Sri Lanka get from something that otherwise would have been landfill.
Due to our remarkably high occupational health and safety levels in this country, we are lucky enough to be able to upgrade our equipment and bless the lives of less fortunate children in other countries, this would otherwise not happen without such an amazing program.
Thanks to our members for working together to pull this playground apart in such a short space of time.
The reserve now has a new playground for our own children to explore. Bright, colourful and inviting.
