Fingal Head Coastcare members are celebrating a statewide award for rehabilitation work. The group won a Community Involvement Award at the NSW Coastal Conference last week.

‘We’re very happy with the award,’ said Kay Bolton.

The group has been operating for more than 20 years, regenerating local dunes and forests. Ms Bolton said the Fingal group could be one of the oldest dunecare groups in NSW.

‘Fingal Head has also been shortlisted (which means we’ve won a place) in the NSW Northern Rivers Keep Australia Beautiful Awards in the categories of Community Involvement (of course) and Overall Clean Beach Challenge,’ she said.
