Member for Ballina Tamara Smith will speak this Sunday at the official launch of new equipment for Waterlily Park at Ocean Shores.

“There really is a great sense of community in Ocean Shores and this event is a lovely way to celebrate the progress that has been made so far.”

The launch will be held at 1 Yamble Drive, Ocean Shores on Sunday, April 30, 1-3pm. Facepainting, games and performances will be part of the fun on the day.
