A group of Tuncurry business owners is behind a community-driven push to transform town's main centre in just seven days using people power, a seemingly impossibly short time frame and limited budget.
The exciting event is supported by the MidCoast Council Vibrant Spaces initiative, and is a whole-of-community event, with volunteers welcomed.
The team is in the planning stage now, with the seven-day makeover schedueld to take place from Saturday June 22 until Saturday, June 29.
Members of the community who would like to learn more about or project, or who would like to get involved and give assistance are welcome to attend an information evening on Tuesday, May 28 from 6.30- 8pm at the Bellevue Hotel.

The seven-day makeover concept is the brainchild of 'master placemaker' and Creative Communities International founder, David Engwicht.
Mr Engwicht has been helping towns around the world transform tired, used and under-appreciated public spaces into vibrant community hubs.

And now it's Tuncurry's turn.
During the information night, Mr Engwicht will explain what's involved and how the seven-day makeover works and share how to create great public spaces on a shoestring budget with instant results.
