Safety for outdoor events

THE completion of the soundshell in Nelson Reserve is great news for Gympie residents.

The soundshell is something the town has needed for a long time.

Community groups and bands will now be able to use the new facility to host outdoor events in safety.

In the past rain has caused havoc with events such as the Santa Fair and Carols by Candlelight, making it too dangerous to set up expensive audio equipment.

The new facility has everything needed for outdoor entertainment.

It has plenty of room on stage, three rows of lighting bars for special effects and myriad power points.

The soundshell is even designed to be easily hosed down after a flood.

Everyone involved in the project from Rotary, Apex, Skill Centred and the Gympie Regional Council should be proud of their input.

Gympie now has another public asset the people can be proud of for years to come.
