UPGRADE: Loddon Shire tourism manager Robyn Vella and recreation officer Tony Bellenger sit on the new table and chairs donated by the Inglewood Men’s Shed. A TRULY community effort has given rise to a new playground in Inglewood.
After Loddon Shire Council accesed a $120,000 Department of Sport and Recreation grant for new playground equipment, the community responded to ensure it had a real state-of-the-art facility.
Complementary works at the Inglewood Recreation Reserve include new fencing around the pool and netball courts, a fresh coat of paint and maintenance work on the pools, a resurfaced netball court and new irrigation system.
Loddon Shire Council recreation officer Tony Bellenger said the project had benefitted from many “in-kind efforts”.
They included the town’s Lions club which built a new barbecue, the Men’s Shed which contributed a hand-carved ‘mushroom’ table and chairs, whilestudents from schools in Inglewood and Wedderburn also lent a helping hand.
“The Loddon prison gang have also been working here – they did all the fencing around our pool as well as the netball court,” Mr Bellengersaid.
“They are also putting in a cricket net in at the pool.
“They come out and spend all day here and work – we have a good relationship with (the prison).”
