All hands on deck for makeover
WITH tools at the ready, teams from local businesses have begun a garden makeover, the first part of Sawtell Memorial Park’s Memory Walk.
In the lead-up to Anzac Day, Bunnings Warehouse Coffs Harbour staff and a crew from Tursa Employment and Training gave the Sawtell RSL’s Memorial Park a good sprucing up.
The long-term project aims to have a memorial garden representing each war to commemorate and show respect to those who served.
The Sawtell RSL is seeking sponsors to lend a hand in the Memorial Walk’s making.
Each Anzac Day, Bunnings Warehouse helps out in the garden to show respect to the fallen.
Last year they created an appreciation garden for a war widow.
Jumping on the perfect opportunity for a garden makeover this year, today they built the main circular garden at Memorial Park.
Activities organiser Kandy Harper said they planted a “formal garden”, with a circular organisation of rosemary, mondo grass, Allyn Magic lilly pilly with a massive pine tree in the centre and a chair where people can sit and remember.
