Skaters ea­ger to use park

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Mata­mata Skate Park com­mit­tee mem­ber Ross Bay said it was im­por­tant for the community to be kept up- to- date with up­grade progress be­cause ev­ery­one had been so heav­ily in­volved in the project.

Mata­mata busi­nesses had also been keen to jump on board with Mata­mata Ma­sonry and Rex Barnes Engi­neer­ing both do­nat­ing labour for the stone and steel work.

The Rotary Club of Mata­mata and Mata­mata-Pi­ako Dis­trict Coun­cil have given $70,000 to­wards the skate park up­grade with a fur­ther $ 20,000 raised through other fundrais­ing.

‘‘The kids have been fan­tas­tic and fully in­volved ... They can’t wait to be able to use this fa­cil­ity.’’
