Conventional wisdom is when someone gifts you a horse, you don't look in its mouth.
However, when it comes to the NSW Government's My Community Project, it's been anything but conventional.

That vote means Yenda's getting a skate park, and the draft plans were revealed this week.
The proposed location for this is the large park in the centre of Yenda - Memorial Park.
A practically perfect location because not only will it bring some much needed life to the centre of Yenda, it should mean the surrounding businesses also get a boost.
Children can take their scooters or skateboards for a turn as mum or dad grab some groceries, or a tank of fuel.
Perhaps they might go for lunch or dinner at the Yenda Pub or even the Diggers Club just around the corner.
Promoted correctly it could be a springboard to attracting people to Yenda.
This skate park is a rare opportunity to complement the work many residents and volunteers have done through Yenda's Rotary Club and Yenda Progress Association.
Memorial Park of course hosts the town's memorial to our fallen soldiers and sailors.
Critics reckon that this is somehow disrespectful to have a skate park in the same area.

Respect isn't a one-way street.
