Would you like your love of Kingscliff set in stone?

A Tweed shire competition inviting people for their best quotes about the seaside village and its new central park now taking shape will do just that.

Landscaping for Central Park is moving full steam ahead as part of the ongoing Kingscliff Foreshore Revitalisation project, and the designers are looking for residents’ quotes to include in a number of pavers.

To submit a quote of up to 13 words, visit yoursaytweed.com.au/KingscliffForeshore and click on ‘Share Your Kingscliff Quote’ before 18 July.

A shortlist of 10 residents’ quotes will then be put to a community vote on the Your Say Tweed page, with the four most popular to be carved into pavers as part of the landscaping.

Tweed Shire Council’s project manager for the project, Stewart Brawley, said Kingscliff Central Park was set to be the social hub for the village and the carved pavers ‘will be another way to add some community heart and soul to the space’.
