Recognition for community group

A few Umina Community Group members hard at work beautifying the Peninsula

A local Peninsula community group has been recognised in NSW Parliament for its hard work, dedication, and devotion to the area over the past two years.

The Umina Community Group, which works alongside Grow Urban Shade Trees (GUST), was formally acknowledged in a community recognition statement by Member for Gosford Liesl Tesch.

“I would like to commend the Umina Community Group for its unwavering commitment to beautifying the Woy Woy Peninsula and more recently the Runway Park on Trafalgar Ave, Umina Beach,” Tesch said.

“Umina Community Group has coordinated a series of weeding and mulching works to maintain the Runway Park to ensure it is healthy and looking great for residents and visitors to the park.”

Tesch also commended the work the group provided to the Central Coast Council in educating the community on correct tree planting methods.

Umina Community Group Secretary, Peter Springett, said the recognition from the NSW Parliament and Tesch was very much appreciated.

“A sensational achievement by a very special group of people within the Umina Community Group (Inc) team,” Springett said.
