A gazebo in Heathcote’s Valley of the Liquidambers recently received a coat of paint.
Heathcote Lions club president Daryl Dedman said the Lions built the gazebo in 1999 but never gave it a coat of colour paint.
‘‘A new sign is currently being done which will be attached to the gazebo, replacing the old one,’’ he said.
‘‘The Valley of the Liquidambers is a wonderful place for a picnic on an autumn day when the leaves are turning.’’
The Valley was opened by the Heathcote Tourist Promotion Committee on September 19, 1971.
