South Golden Beach Community Association would like to thank and acknowledge everyone involved in organising the vibrant SGB Community Open Day which celebrated the opening of our new skate park and playground.

In particular, we are grateful for the wonderful efforts of Lotte, Karim and Flavio. It was a joyful and respectful coming together of our diverse and talented community and included a well-attended skate competition, kid’s activities, bbq and much more.

We also extend our thanks to council staff, Michael Matthews and Malcolm Robertson, whose tireless efforts resulted in our fabulous play scape for kids of all ages to enjoy now and in generations to come.

It’s great to see our community spirit is alive and kicking.

Angela Dunlop, South Golden Beach Community Association
