Chippie chips in with playhouse
A handmade children’s playhouse is on its way to the The Kidz Social Services Charitable Trust thanks to the efforts of Herne Bay carpenter Kate Ross.
Nine of the country’s best carpentry apprentices battled it out during a sixhour practical test where each built a playhouse for the title of Registered Master Builders Carters 2013 Apprentice of the Year on October 11.
Ms Ross missed out on a top three placing.
The 26-year-old appeared in the Auckland City Harbour News on September 18 as the first woman to compete at the national finals.
