Community group to install signs at Runway park

Umina Community Group plans to install four informational signs around The Runway park on Trafalgar Ave, Woy Woy.

Each signwill have different stories and pictures depicting the history of the World War II runway that existed in the middle of the Peninsula.

The group's project officer Mr Julian Bowker said a Federal Government grant would allow the upgrade to The Runway park to be completed.

"The final stage of the community-driven upgrade of the park will be to implement four interpretive signs which explain the background to why an airstrip existed in Umina.

"Like the historical signs that have been installed along The Esplanade shared zone in Umina, we have also been working with Central Coast Council Library and local historians to use the photos they have to bring the stories of The Runway to life.

"It is hoped by connecting our local youth to the wartime story behind The Runway, they will gain a better understanding of the war's impact on Australia and how we view the broader topic of the sacrifices made by the generations before us."

The grant of $5112 came from the Federal Government's Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program.

The grant program is run by the Department of Veteran Affairs and aims to preserve Australia's wartime heritage, and promote appreciation and understanding of the role that those who served have played in shaping the nation.
