Tawa cel­e­brates spring

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The rain didn’t stop hun­dreds from springing into Tawa on Satur­day.

Spring into Tawa or­gan­iser Ron Baker said the mar­ket day had been an over­all suc­cess.

A last- minute dis­as­ter turned out to be the high­light of the day when the or­gan­ised en­ter­tain­ment pulled out and a group of chil­dren played in­stead.

‘‘They were par­tic­u­larly good – a crowd pleaser,’’ Baker said.

Tawa’s main street was lined with 62 stalls sell­ing ev­ery­thing from cakes and cur­ries to plants and toys.

Hair now: Fight­ing fires: Left, Lily-Ann Alder­son, 4, and Blake Meikle, 11, find out what it’s like to be fire­fight­ers.

Match­ing sis­ters: Clara Bow­den, 6, and Emilia Bow­den, 2, had their faces painted.
