Kapi-Mana News - - COURT/ NEWS -

A group of Wai­tan­girua fa­thers are work­ing to spruce up the Wai­tan­girua Com­mu­nity Park in prepa­ra­tion for a celebration day on Novem­ber 30. The men from the Wes­ley Com­mu­nity Ac­tion Fa­thers Group have sanded down and painted the fences around the bas­ket­ball and vol­ley­ball courts – and pay­ment for their hard work is go­ing di­rectly to Na­tone Park School to fund a school trip. One of the vol­un­teers, Keith Rib­bon, said it was great to be out do­ing some­thing for the com­mu­nity. “I put my hand up to help. It’s good to be out here work­ing.” Na­tone Park School chil­dren were in­volved in the orig­i­nal de­vel­op­ment of the park ,and chose the Royal Blue colour for the newly-painted fence posts. The Wai­tan­girua Com­mu­nity Day is aimed at en­cour­ag­ing lo­cal res­i­dents to cel­e­brate their com­mu­nity and get to know their neigh­bours. It’s be­ing or­gan­ised by lo­cal res­i­dents in part­ner­ship with the Coun­cil’s Vil­lage Plan­ning Pro­gramme. There will be car boot sales, en­ter­tain­ment, and food and drink.
