Pleased to announce the Shell Chapel will be moved from its current site near the basketball courts, to a more picture (and instagram friendly) location, behind the playground.
The New Brighton Residents Association and residents (shout out to John Mowat) have been requesting for this happen for some time. So thanks to staff for organising this and also for planning a renewal of the Shell Chapel.
The design of the Shell Chapel was inspired by a story about the generosity of the New Brighton community who had banded together to donate a wedding to a local couple in need.
Expected moving date is this month, so get ready to jump inside the Shell Chapel to get a pic with your beloved of the beautiful beach beyond .
The Shell Chapel was designed by Ting Lin and built by Leighs Construction and won People’s Choice vote in the Tiny Huts design competition in 2016.
