Rotary told of community group work

The Rotary Club of Woy Woy hosted Umina Community Group members Mr Tony Winch and Mr Peter Springett at their latest meeting.

Mr Winch and Mr Springett discussed the various programs the Umina Community Group had delivered to the community over their four years of operation.

"Tony and Peter told us how the group was set up four years ago and has been active in improving life in the Umina area," said Rotary club publicity officer, Mr Vic Deeble.

"They spoke about some projects in which they have been involved.

"The first was the dune rehabilitation along the Umina and Ocean Beach foreshores.

"This has become a significant issue with loss of sand and undergrowth in the past three years."

Mr Deeble said that, unfortunately, the pair did not believe dredging the sand from the waterway would be suitable as the different sands were unlikely to mix and the sand added would be gradually washed away.

"The next project they referred to was the upgrade to the park in Trafalgar Ave," Mr Deeble said.

"This was originally a rather uninspiring park with only grass and a swing.

"Now with careful planning and cooperation from the Council, a park has been created that is a pleasure to sit in and enjoy.

"Tony then spoke about the upgrade taking place to the skate park that benefitted from a survey of the youth who use that facility.

"Apparently the most desired improvement was a bubbler," Mr Deeble said.

"Finally, he spoke about National Tree Day and the Group's tree planting in Augusta St and Sydney Ave, Umina.
