Trust seeks sup­port for run­ning track

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

An all-weather run­ning track in front of Mana Col­lege has taken a ten­ta­tive step for­ward, with mem­bers of a newly formed com­mu­nity trust mak­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion to Porirua City Coun­cil last week. Trus­tees Henry Smith and Lafaele Lupo, from Ti­tahi Bay Ama­teur Ath­let­ics Club, who are driv­ing the project, said along with get­ting the back­ing of Ath­let­ics New Zealand, they have a quote for a fea­si­bil­ity study. They were not ask­ing for any coun­cil money at this stage, but its sup­port in prin­ci­ple. Mr Lupo said the fa­cil­ity would be sim­i­lar to New­town Park, with a syn­thetic track sur­round­ing a grass area that could be used for foot­ball, rugby league, rugby or other sports.
