Spring into action
Residents are being urged to adopt a spot of land and care for it starting this Saturday, the kickoff to Keep New Zealand Beautiful Week.
Keep Porirua Beautiful is asking locals to focus on Mungavin Ave, where Rugby World Cup teams will get their first impression of Porirua, co-ordinator John Poppleton says.
‘‘Hopefully they’ll see it at its best.’’
Jobs that need doing on Mungavin include picking up rubbish, planting trees and mowing lawns. Just one or two hours of work will make a huge differences, Mr Poppleton says.
‘‘ That’s as little as we’re asking, just an hour. It’s whatever you feel that you can personally get some joy, value out of it. I think that’s key.’’
Rubbish bags and gloves can be supplied by Keep Porirua Beautiful, who will also put skip bins on the street so residents can clear their back gardens of junk.
Individuals, families and corporate groups are all welcome to volunteer.
Contact John Poppleton at 238 1641 or kpb.org.nz.
Best food forward: next week, Porirua.
