Businesses from across the north of the state have given up their time to help out a popular tourism attraction, following last week's floods. Wings Wildlife Park was decimated by the floods and one of those businesses helping out was Launceston-based company Jay Jay Building and Renovations. The company's director Jayson Wadley explained why he decided to help. "We are good friends with Wings (Wildlife Park)," he said. "My wife (Gianna) and Gena (Cantwell) go back to when my wife lived in Burnie. "We have a cabin at Wings Wildlife Park on top of the hill and we are glad we kept that cabin. "We have been going to our cabin for years and as soon as we heard about the floods, Gianna and I asked 'what can we we do?'. "Our daughters and son have spent a lot of time growing up at the park. "People were donating money. "We donated two days to help out with the excavation, slab prep and the pouring of two slabs for the monkeys on the hill. "It was a no-brainer for us." IN OTHER NEWS: Mr Wadley said it felt "fantastic" to be able to help. "We mentioned it to all our workers and they said 'we would be all happy to go down there'," Mr Wadley said. "They were put up in the backpackers area and they were well looked after. "We had seven or eight guys down there and many hands make light work. "It's amazing what can be achieved in a couple of days. "It was a great result and everything went to plan." Mr Wadley said he was amazed at where the water levels had reached during the floods. "I don't think people realise the force of the water needed to lift up pre-established slabs," he said. "That is an enormous amount of pressure." When asked whether they would return, Mr Wadley said he would be returning next week. "They only have to ask and we will help out where we can," he said.
