Campbelltown locals now have places to rest and reflect with the installation of eight park benches along a walking trail near Daly Oval.
‘Beth’s Path’, also known as ‘A Walk for the Elders’, is an initiative of Clayton Church Homes (CCH) Magill ILU resident Beth Mylius, other Magill ILU residents, Clayton Church Homes and Campbelltown City Council. The path helps CCH residents and the wider community stop, relax and enjoy the local flora and fauna whilst walking around the area.
Generous donations were received from some of the CCH Magill ILU residents, their families and Clayton Church Homes to purchase the benches, at a cost of $1000 per bench. Six (6) of the benches feature plaques of remembrance. Installation of the benches was a joint initiative between Campbelltown City Council and CCH.
It is a wonderful tribute to those that have passed and their support for the community.
Through the support of Campbelltown City Council, local Councillor, Luci Blackborough, Mayor Jill Whittaker and the Council Works Manager, Walter, the path came to life and quite fittingly was officially named ‘Beth’s Path’.
The gate between Clayton Church Homes Magill and the Council owned land provides a link to the path and a meeting point for those with limited mobility to use the park bench and enjoy the sound of birds whilst sitting under the gum trees.
Beth’s Path would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of Beth Mylius, those who donated park benches and the Campbelltown City Council. Clayton Church Homes are proud to be part of this community initiative.
