Town centres throughout Newcastle will receive a rejuvenation over coming weekends as CityServe begins for 2015.

The push calls on volunteers to fill a diary of projects to help the community over several weekends in October to deliver improvements around the city.

There are projects in each ward of the city, allowing its influence to stretch from the beach to the bush.

Lord mayor Nuatali Nelmes and CityServe chairman Rick Prosser announced on Monday that the 2015 projects would include revegetating Nobbys breakwall, Lambton Park and King Edward Park.

Volunteers will also upgrade the Centennial Park pavilions and plant 15,000 seedlings in Lambton Park.

Cr Nelmes said the city had developed a strong partnership with CityServe in recent years.

“Our city has benefitted greatly from the work of CityServe volunteers to give our city a spruce up in past years and a number of great projects are planned for this year as well,” she said.

Mr Prosser said the work of volunteers was a reflection of their passion to see the city improve.

“We all can’t do everything but we can all do something,” Mr Prosser said “Contributing to our community for a day is doable and with others guaranteed enjoyable.”

Individuals and organisations are encouraged to register, with more volunteers needed.

Anyone over the age of 18 can volunteer their time and skills at www.CityServe.com.au.
