Kindy over moon with Men's Shed bridge
THE Dalby Men's Shed unveiled its new bridge to Dalby Beck Street Kindergarten on Thursday morning, putting smiles on all the kids' faces.
Last year the kindergarten obtained a grant from J.J. Richards and Western Downs Regional Council to improve the playground and the Men's Shed was more than happy to help out.
President Geoff McIntyre said it was a great project.
"We thought, that's definitely something we could build at the shed,” he said.
"We do whatever we can for community groups, that's one of our goals.
"The bridge is unique because it's made out of natural resources such as cypress pine and sugar box, which we got from one of our properties. The only thing we purchased was the floor boards for safety reasons.”
Dalby Beck Street Kindergarten committee treasurer Michelle Arthur said it was nice seeing the grant come to completion point.
"It's fantastic that they took on the project, they have been working closely with us and it has been really nice,” she said.
"The grant was part of the KidsMatter program, which is aimed at improving the mental health of the children and delivering projects that encourage imagination and make them feel safe.
"The kids love it. It wasalovely community project.”
