Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington has met with local Wooroolin children to throw her support behind their push for a skate park in the town.
Mrs Frecklington said she had recently received a handwritten letter from local youngsters Nate and Harry seeking her help.
“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,” Mrs Frecklington 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 with the South Burnett Regional Council.
“I have also contacted local community groups to discuss grant opportunities, and at the meeting we discussed possible fundraising options.”
Mrs Frecklington said she was very impressed by the young group.
“They showed a great deal of passion and confidence throughout the meeting to talk me through this project for their community,” she said.
“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.”
