Flying foxes cool for kids

Maya, Charlotte, Isla, and Georgia (pictured) have given the thumbs up to a community bank donation which will enable a double flying fox installed in a Riddells Creek park.

Lions Memorial Park Upgrade Committee spokeswoman Narelle McGellin says the latest additions, made possible by a $20,000 grant from Gisborne and District Community Bank, are part of plans hatched more than two years.

The flying foxes, likely to be installed by Christmas, will complete stage one of the project, which also includes a sensory garden and bridge.
