New venue for mar­ket

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

Porirua Mar­ket is on the move.

Ti­tahi Bay Li­ons has an­nounced that from May 2 the mar­ket will be re­lo­cated to the rear car park of Wai­tan­girua Shop­ping Mall com­plex and will run from 4am un­til 11am.

The Li­ons club has run the mar­ket since 1985, in re­cent years at Cob­ham Court.

How­ever, Porirua City Coun­cil wanted an up­graded mar­ket and has ad­vised Li­ons its lat­est ap­pli­ca­tion did not meet re­quire­ments.

‘‘ We have tried our best to re­main at the Cob­ham Court site,’’ Li­ons club pres­i­dent Chris Jones said.

‘‘We now have no op­tion other than to re­lo­cate as our in­ten­tion is to con­tinue a mar­ket op­er­a­tion.

‘‘ We are sad­dened that our pres­ence at Cob­ham Court has come to an end.

In the mean­time, the coun­cil is seek­ing sub­mis­sions for new op­er­a­tors for its mar­ket.
