One bench in Kings Parade is not like the others, and that is because it carries a very important message. A bench on the eastern side has been given a fresh coat of paint under the Red Bench Project, which was started by the Red Rose Foundation. By having a red bench in a public space, participating cities hope to raise awareness about domestic violence. The Bathurst Regional Community Safety Committee formally unveiled the red bench in Kings Parade on Thursday. Councillor Jacqui Rudge, who is also the chairperson of the community safety committee, said it was an initiative Bathurst should be proud to be a part of.
