The Frank Mills Seat
Situated under the Cypress Pine, in front of the Tweed Street IGA Supermarket courtyard, the new Frank Mills Seat embodies key elements of Mr Mills' colourful life. This is his story...
A beautiful new community seat depicting local flora and fauna in mosaic has been unveiled on Tweed Street, in front of the Catholic Church. This is the second community seat on Tweed St, following completion of the Frank Mills Historical seat near the IGA Supermarket on Tweed St. The stunning artwork for the flora and fauna mosaic seat was created by local artist Renee Gordos and mosaicist Pauline Ross. The seat was lovingly crafted to life with assistance from students at Brunswick Heads Public School.
