The Dorset Council Bridport workforce has just refurbished the solar powered lights at Bridport and they are now better and brighter than ever.

The solar powered lights and information plaques on the foreshore at Bridport were the brainchild of Donna Millwood and Wendy McLennan in 2007. Ten years ago this was very new technology and was one of the first forays into solar powered lights in Tasmania. The information plaques on the history of Bridport were provided by local historian and photographer Jeff Jennings.

‘It is so encouraging to see a community project be so successful’. Thousands of visitors have walked and ridden the foreshore track over the last ten years and enjoyed the history and outstanding views that we have in Bridport. Wendy McLennan said.

It is so encouraging to see a community project become one of the centrepieces of our lovely town.
