Tinonee swings again

Swings 

After some 10 months without a swing in Horace Dean Park, Tinonee (the older styled original ones were removed in July 2016) the Midcoast Council workmen moved in at the end of last week and have started on the replacements. 

These swings will meet the required standards and will, I am sure, be very much appreciated by children and parents alike when they are declared 'officially in use’.

Birthdays

Congratulations to my two children Andrew who celebrated his 38th on May 5 and to his sister Fiona who turned the big 40 on Saturday May 13. It was also Mother’s Day on Sunday so there were lots of phone calls going on, as hubby John and I were unable to be with them. Also celebrating another birthday on May 4 was their Uncle Garry Muxlow who lives in the Newcastle region. Finally I cannot forget long time friend and bridesmaid Margaret Johnson who lives north of Brisbane as she celebrated on May 9. Also many happy returns to friend Lesley Timperley whose birthday fell on Mother’s Day.
