Set to be established alongside the
John St playground, the proposal
has the support of both the Winton

"The skatepark will
be a great resource
for our young
people in Winton
districts and it will
bring people into the town,'' she said.
"It's a good all-round concept, which

to come on board.

"I'd also like to thank
the previous com-
mittee, which did a
of work. They pro-
vided the platform
and we're now able to
take it to another level.
"Now we're looking for more
community support -- we've got a
very positive committee and it now
feels like it's starting to have legs
and if people want to be involved
they only need to call into the REAP
And she was determined to see the
project through, even though it was
a big ask.
"Other smaller communities have
done it, so why can't we?
''We will exhaust all options to make
''But we do need the support of the
community to do it."
