North Coast Holiday Parks Support Local Woodchop Festival and Community
NCHP is part of the NSWCHPT which manages 36 holiday parks in some of NSW's most iconic waterfront locations.
Now in its 57th year, the Festival of the Fish 'n' Chips Woodchop Carnival attracted thousands of people to Banner Park across the four-day event. The event provided free entertainment for locals and visitors including a number of exciting wood chopping competitions and a family fireworks display.
Event Secretary Joy Slater said NSWCHPT has been a loyal supporter of the Festival of the Fish 'n' Chips Woodchop Carnival for nine years.
“Banner Park is a fantastic location and it's great to see one of the community assets managed by NSWCHPT being enjoyed by the local community,” Ms Slater said.
“We're always pleased to work with NSWCHPT and their continued support of the event reflects the organisation's strong community focus in Brunswick Heads.
“I attended the Brunswick Heads holiday park walkthroughs in November last year where this community-focus was evident through their consultative approach to their proposed concept plans for the three holiday parks.
NSWCHPT CEO Steve Edmonds said supporting local events and community consultation aligns with the organisation's vision to be the leading provider of recreational destinations that excite guests, energise communities and showcase sensational NSW locations.
“Brunswick Heads has to be one of NSW's most iconic and sought after tourist destinations,” Mr Edmonds said.
“This is why we partner with the local communities at our holiday parks as much as possible.
“We also work closely with the Brunswick Heads Visitor Information Centre to promote not only our parks but Brunswick Heads as a premier destination.
“We are pleased to be working with Council and the community on our concept plans for the three parks. We held park walkthroughs in Brunswick Heads in November last year to gain important community feedback and will hold another community session in the coming months to discuss feedback received and possible solutions.”
The Festival of the Fish 'n' Chips was held from 18th – 21st January 2017 at Banner Park, Brunswick Heads.
