Love and colour added to Gosford CBD

Love in GosfordLove in Gosford

The Gosford Business Improvement District (GBID) will be installing a host of wheelbarrows filled with brightly coloured flowers throughout the CBD to celebrate Spring.

GBID has worked hand in hand with the Gosford Regional Community Services (GRCS) to create a host of wooden wheelbarrows, to be placed in strategic positions around the CBD. Volunteers and staff from the GRCS have built the wheelbarrows from recycled timber, and have planted them out with a spectacular array of spring time blooms. To complement the wheelbarrows, clients from New Horizons have knitted and crocheted a veritable garden of flowers to brighten up the bus stop on Mann St.

A Dash of Christmas has also brought love to Burns Park with a two metre Love sign. This has been a huge hit already, with loads of people stopping to take their photo with the sign. GBID Project Manager, Ms Edwina Nikora, said: “This project is a great way to bring together several community groups, to reinforce the beauty of Gosford City. “The flowers and yarnbombing bring a new colour and vibrancy to the city. “And most of all, it shows just how much love there is in Gosford.” “The wheelbarrow walk runs throughout Kibble Park, down William Street Mall and in several locations up Mann Street to the Love sign in Burns Park. The displays will be in place throughout September.
