Spe­cial day for fam­i­lies

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION/NEWS -

Plun­ket will cel­e­brate the good weather with fam­i­lies and friends in Porirua next week.

The Welling­ton-Wairarapa area of Plun­ket is hold­ing its first Fam­ily Fun Fes­ti­val at Aotea La­goon on Fe­bru­ary 12.

‘‘Plun­ket recog­nises that fam­ily is the heart of our com­mu­nity and time to­gether is so im­por­tant,’’ says spokes­woman Mar­garet Bourke.

‘‘We all have busy lives and be­fore things start to get too hec­tic, we would like to pro­vide a chance for fam­i­lies to gather and en­joy each other’s com­pany. This will be a timely op­por­tu­nity for us to share the im­por­tant news of the new Plun­ket Cen­tre which is sched­uled to be built in Can­nons Creek this year.

‘‘We are re­ally ex­cited as this cen­tre will of­fer a wide range of ser­vices to fam­i­lies in the com­mu­nity – ser­vices that are vi­tal to the health, well­be­ing and safety of our chil­dren.’’

Bouncy cas­tles, the Wai­tan­girua Lions train, a va­ri­ety of mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment from lo­cal groups, egg and spoon races, an ac­tiv­ity cir­cuit and face-painters will be on hand, while a sausage siz­zle and ice creams should keep the tum­mies from rum­bling.

Fam­i­lies are en­cour­aged to bring their pic­nic blan­kets and set­tle in for a re­lax­ing and en­ter­tain­ing time. The fes­ti­val day will run on the la­goon lawns, from 10am till 1pm.

In the event of poor weather lead­ing to post­pone­ment, the fam­ily day will be held at the la­goon on Fe­bru­ary 19.
