Aquajet?s last day a success
FROM the top of the Aquajet waterslide on Sunday evening, Dr Paul Moran could not see the Patients and Carers Lodge at the Coffs Harbour Health Campus, but he knew it was closer to completion. Dr Moran, a past president of the Rotary Club of Coffs Harbour, enjoyed the final slide down the Aquajet as part of a fundraising day for the lodge. Hundreds of people flocked to the fun park on Sunday for the last day of business before the slide is removed to make way for the expansion of Park Beach Plaza. The Rotary Club raised more than $6000 during the day, which takes it close to its $1.2 million target for the lodge. "There were lots of families enjoying the day and queues like they hadn't seen for a long time at the Aquajet," Rob Anderson, one of the day's or- ganisers, said. "At the end of the day, Dr Paul Moran had the final slide, and we toasted the success of the Aquajet."
