The 7-day Makeover team is gathering steam and charging towards its plan to give Tuncurry a much needed facelift in just seven days.
Volunteer support has begun to flood in, while plans are beginning to take shape for the grass-roots, community-led revitalisation of Tuncurry's main thoroughfare, Manning Street.
Last week, more than 80 people attended a community information night which outlined the process of preparing for the 7-day Makeover and how people can get involved.
The project will begin at the Bellevue Hotel, Tuncurry on Saturday June 22 with an ideas workshop between 9-30am-4.30pm followed by another project planning day on Sunday, June 23, finishing with a volunteers' briefing at 3.30pm
The makeover proper gets under way from Monday until Friday, June 28 when volunteers will transform Tuncurry's business centre.
MidCoast Council economic development officer, Robyn Brennan all the projects would be community driven.
She said a decision on the projects would not won't be decided until the ideas generation workshop, when all participants would have the opportunity to vote for their preferred outcome or activity.
"The new attractions should be inviting for all ages," Ms Brennan said.
"The community wants to encourage people back into the town centre and increase pride in Tuncurry's public spaces.
"Whether you're a business operator, school kid or community group, this project is about you and we encourage everyone to come along and be involved."
So how does it work? People have the opportunity to be involved as much or as little as they like.
You can come along and donate as little as an hour of your time.
You can help make sandwiches or bake a cake, build things, paint things, clean things, give money or materials to the project or even just give us your ideas.
Following the make-over on Saturday, June 29 a launch party will be held in the street from 9.30am.
