Spring into ac­tion

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By AN­DREA O’NEIL

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.
