Ettalong garden beds to get a makeover
Garden beds along Ettalong town centre will get a makeover in time for spring as part of the beautification of Ettalong for entry into the Tidy Town competition.
Peninsula Tourism Partners' president Ms Kim Cole said the group planned to develop a planting schedule for all areas along Ocean View Rd, Picnic Pde Roundabout and Memorial Ave.
The plans will be submitted to Council for approval.
Local landscape architect Mr David Duncan will choose the trees and shrubs for the street scene.
"The days of blooming garden beds are over because of high water usage and maintenance.
"Along the streets of Ettalong I envisage scrubs, selected trees and ground covers,'' he said.
The Partners also have planned their launch for the 2019-2020 tourism season.
"We are planning the Red Carpet Day in conjunction with a vintage car show, a Christmas lights competition and Santa's special event: Carols on the Sand," Ms Cole said.
"For those residents with a green thumb who want to assist with the beautification project, your help is needed," she said.
A donation from Bendigo Bank Ettalong Beach will help the project.
Branch manager Mr Peter McKeon said it was a perfect opportunity for the bank to help out with funding for the benefit of locals and visitors alike.
