Liberty Swing lets special kids let loose

THE Derwent Valley’s first Liberty Swing was officiallly opened at Tynwald Park, New Norfolk, last Saturday afternoon. The innovative swing was installed, thanks to the efforts of the Variety Club Bashers and the local community. Liberty Swings are a world-first Australian innovation which allow people in wheelchairs the opportunity to experience the joy of having a swing in the park. Until now, they have had to watch from the sidelines as their siblings and friends experience the freedom and exhilaration of a swing.

The swing at Tynwald Park was been made possible through support from the Derwent Valley Council, the Lions Club of New Norfolk, Norske Skog, Log A Load for Kids and Variety Tasmania.
