Wooroolin boys lobby local MP for Skatepark

29th July 2021

Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington has met with local Wooroolin children to throw her support behind their push for a skatepark.

Mrs Frecklington recently received a handwritten letter from local youths Nate and Harry seeking her assistance to help them have a skatepark built in the township of Wooroolin.

“I called a meeting with the boys and some of their friends to discuss how we can work together to bring this idea to fruition” Deb said

“Wooroolin has a group of passionate youths in their town and I am certainly willing to help them in any way I can. I will be advocating on behalf of the boys to South Burnett Regional Council”.

“I have already contacted local community groups to discuss grant opportunities and at the meeting we discussed possible fundraising options” Deb said.

“I was very impressed by the group who showed a great deal of passion and confidence throughout the meeting to talk me through this project for their community”

“The next step will be to start a petition and I look forward to working with Nate, Harry and their friends to see their dream become reality” Deb said
