Member for Lismore, Thomas George, whose electorate includes Murwillumbah and hinterland has sung the praises of an environmental project at Mr Warning Preschool near Uki.

Mr George was on Monday invited to see first hand the project, which would be funded under the NSW Government's Community Partnerships grant program.

“What the team at the preschool are proposing is to convert an existing cubby house into an interactive learning space to teach the children about the issues of energy conservation and recycling,” Mr George said.

Works will include building a functioning, child-size kitchen and installing solar lighting and a pedal-power water pump plus recycling chutes.

“I think this is a great idea deserving of funding, especially considering how little community preschools get from this Government.”

“I congratulate Trenna Malcolm, Ian Willis, Pauline Hurcombe, Maria Hogan and everyone else involved for this great initiative.”
