Day of fam­ily fun is back

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By KRIS DANDO

It’s big, red and has found the per­fect fi­nal rest­ing place – at Pau­ata­hanui School.

Af­ter in­tro­duc­ing a red trac­tor as its an­nual Lamb & Calf Day logo in 2009, Pau­ata­hanui School thought it ap­pro­pri­ate that an ac­tual trac­tor be on site.

Lamb & Calf Day will take place on Novem­ber 6 from 10am till 2pm, rain or shine, at the school grounds.

Or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee mem­ber Lee-Ann Duli­gall says the red trac­tor is steeped in his­tory – from a farm in the Otaki Hills, to Whangahu, haul­ing boats.

‘‘This trac­tor now de­servedly re­turns to a peace­ful, re­laxed ru­ral life over­look­ing the beau­ti­ful Pau­ata­hanui In­let from the school grounds,’’ she says.

Ms Duli­gall says the event is al­ways one the com­mu­nity looks for­ward to and sup­ports. ‘‘It is a day about our chil­dren, fam­ily fun, great food, live en­ter­tain­ment, an­i­mals, home­made good­ies and so much more.’’

The Robin­son Sis­ters – from the Beat Girls – and lo­cal jazz band Casablanca will per­form and new at­trac­tions in­clude paint­ball, de­signer clothes and the Bledis­loe and TriNa­tions cups. Farm­yard an­i­mals to see in­clude a minia­ture pony, don­key, bun­nies, pigs, goats, ducks and chick­ens and even a weta farm.

Field day: It’s all about the kids, an­i­mals, food and fun at Pau­ata­hanui School’s Lamb & Calf Day on Novem­ber 6. You can be guar­an­teed Paige Duli­gall and Jack­son Kennedy, top, and Liam Dal­ton with lamb Gio, and Olivia Wooldridge with lamb Lady Baba, will be get­ting into the spirit of the oc­ca­sion.
