Megan’s memory honoured
Tuesday, 1st April, 2014
The Toy Library honoured a young local mother yesterday by building a bike track and bus shelter in her memory.
Toy Library co-ordinator Paigen Howarth said it was in memory of Megan Magill who passed away two years ago in May immediately after giving birth to twin boys at the hospital.
Megan and husband Colin already had two children, a girl and boy.
“Megan was a loved member of the Toy Library and her children really enjoyed coming out here,” Paigen said.
“It was then that we had the idea of making a bike track and dedicating it in memory of her.”
Paigen said the staff and committee put a lot of time and effort into making the bike track with the help of family members.
“We had the bus shelter donated by Broken Hill High School, which was greatly appreciated,” she said.
“With the help of family members we attached a roof and painted it.
“We dedicated it to Megan and her family, naming it ‘Megan’s Place’.”
Yesterday the Toy Library held an open day to honour Megan.
“There are a lot of people out here,” Paigen said. “We have had a really good turnout, with lots of families.
“The children are having so much fun riding around the track. We also had face painting and other fun activities.”
