Dr. Peter Hendy travelled down to Batemans Bay with his assistant Sam Marks at the request of Charles to discuss possible funding for further stages of the planned all-inclusive playground at Corrigans Reserve.

Existing funding has been provided through a mix of grants from the State Government, Eurobodalla Shire Council and local individuals and clubs. The amounts raised so far total $520000. But it is hoped to substantially increase this amount with the assistance of the Federal Government.

The park is in the planning stage with an Architect appointed. Community consultation will follow before construction commences. It is planned that most of the expanded playground work will be completed this financial year.
