To celebrate 100 years of Lions International (1917-2017), Lions Club of Leongatha, with donations from the South Gippsland Shire Community Grants Program and more, have built a new shelter for the Leongatha to Koonwarra section of the Great Southern Rail Trail, with a recycled plastic Flinders Setting and Daintree Select Seat from Replas. Officially opened by president Mike Touzel and district governor Mike Payne, about 140 hours from the Lions community went into the shelter project with an additional 165 hours worth of working bees. Lions Club member, David Murray explained, “we are happy with the result of our efforts.” Flinders Settings are an attractive picnic setting featuring slats running the other way. A secure table that has a low maintenance aspect that will benefit both the Lions Club and South Gippsland Shire Council. The Daintree Select Seat offers a more contemporary style with the same relaxed feel and like the settings, requires little maintenance and will not rot, split or crack like alternative materials. Like all recycled plastic products, Replas furniture is resistant to termites – allowing these furniture pieces to last on the Rail Trail. Mike Touzel concluded, “we are grateful for all involved in making this a reality and we thank the shire’s coordinator of community strengthening Ned Dennis for this support.”
