Shady deal for Kingscliff park



KIDS will be able to play in the shade at Kingscliff playground near Cudgen Surf Life Saving Club this summer thanks to Aquamarine film producers.

The producers, who filmed for one day in Kingscliff earlier this year, donated $1000 toward the cost of a shade cloth cover for the local playground.

Aquamarine location manager Jamie McLennan said they always tried to contribute something to the local community wherever they filmed.

Aquamarine, which is due to be released in the US in April next year, will feature the main street of Kingscliff in the film.

Mr McLennan said the Kingscliff community had been very supportive during their filming and they looked forward to returning for other films.

Tweed Shire Council manager of Recreation Services Stewart Brawley said all contributions were greatly appreciated and council was currently getting quotes on shade cover which they hoped to have installed before next summer.
