Our local Rotary Clubs have partnered with Bega Valley Shire Council in an effort to improve access on Fishpen. 

The Rotary clubs of Pambula and Merimbula have put in two pathways from Burton Avenue and Calendo Court up to Ocean Drive. 

Daryl Dobson, who was Pambula Rotary president in the 2016/17 financial year, was part of the crew that installed the paths last week. 

“This all started when Brenda Edbrooke put in a request to put in a proper path near the toilets at Mitchies Jetty,” Mr Dobson said. “I approached Merimbula Rotary about a joint venture and we did that in concrete. The  Fishpen locals were over-the-moon and asked if we could do these two paths.”

The new paths are made of diamond grid and will provide easy, non-slip access from the lake side of Fishpen to the beach and playground. 

New Pambula Rotary president Colin Dunn said it was another brick in the wall of having better access. 

“It’s about making Merimbula an accessible community,” he said.
