The Waiuku Steel n’ Wheels is ap­proach­ing quickly and there are very few stall spaces left.

If you are still wish­ing to book a stall we urge you to get your ap­pli­ca­tion in quick to the Waiuku Busi­ness and Devel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion - we have only so many stall place­ments al­lo­cated and can­not ex­ceed that.

The ex­hibitor forms are com­ing in thick and fast now also. We are get­ting some great things to ex­hibit from cars to mo­tor­bikes, boats to vin­tage en­gines and mow­ers. If you have some­thing you wish to ex­hibit, please register. It is great to have a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent at­trac­tions on show as this makes this event so unique.

This year we have com­mit­ted to mak­ing the Steel n’ Wheels a ‘‘zero waste’’ event which is not only fan­tas­tic for our com­mu­nity but also great for our en­vi­ron­ment. This will be a huge learn­ing curve for our event com­mit­tee but also a valu­able ed­u­ca­tional ex­er­cise for the gen­eral pub­lic.

I have had many peo­ple ask­ing if the next stages of the paving up­grade in the Waiuku town cen­tre will be hap­pen­ing. This is be­ing dis­cussed cur­rently through the lo­cal board so I will let the pub­lic know as soon as more in­for­ma­tion comes to hand.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the St John op­por­tu­nity shop now up and run­ning in the old Angli­can church op­po­site the GAS sta­tion. We wish you all the best and are sure the com­mu­nity will sup­port the great ven­tures St John is un­der­tak­ing.

The Waiuku Town Cen­tre Tidy-Up/Makeover is on Satur­day, May 6, 8.30am-12pm. This is a fan­tas­tic com­mu­nity ini­tia­tive sup­ported by the Manukau Beau­ti­fi­ca­tion Trust, Franklin Lo­cal Board and Waiuku Busi­ness & Devel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion. We would love to have heaps of sup­port from the com­mu­nity to help spruce up this great town of ours.

All the tools are sup­plied and a sausage siz­zle pro­vided after­wards.

If you and some friends would like to get in­volved email Bar­bara.car­ney@mbct.org.nz to register.
