The inaugural Chalk the Sidewalk event at Burnett Heads was a great success with young and old community members chalking some vibrant designs.

One of the organisers Tanya McLoughlin, from Deeper Essentials, said the event had a great vibe as kids created chalk art works on the side walk competition. 

The first prize in each category was a new scooter donated by Deeper Essentials, with two of the winners Santina and Isabella donating their scooters to the runner up.

Tanya said local businesses were also involved and participants were given passports to have stamped as they visited each business.

By Felicity owner Felicity Newlands, coordinated the event in consultation with the local IGA, said the day was full of good old-fashioned family fun.

Attending the Chalk the Sidewalk event with his family Ben Artup said his children enjoyed the morning and after moving from Sydney two years ago, he wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

“We love living here after moving from Western Sydney in 2017, this place has access to everything a young family need! Beach, shops, things happening, good cafes,” he said.

After opening Kelly’s by the Sea this week owner Kelly Woods said she was amazed by the community support in the coastal town and she was now thinking of making the move to live in Burnett Heads.

“This is our first week opening and I’m very impressed with the support of the community here in Burnett Heads,” Kelly said.

“The locals have definitely made me feel welcome and for a Saturday morning we are very busy!

“Burnett Heads, a coastal community I’m thinking of moving here myself!”
