Pool party a way to mark Wai­tangi Day

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

It was a busy day at the Mor­rinsville Heated Pools when they hosted a Wai­tangi Day pool party.

The free event was well at­tended with more than 300 peo­ple through the gates.

Ev­ery­one was en­ter­tained through­out the day with a free hangi, bouncy cas­tles, and a story teller who shared the story of the Treaty of Wai­tangi on its 175th an­niver­sary.

Mayor Jan Barnes said the Wai- tangi Day pool party was a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for ev­ery­one to come to­gether and cel­e­brate the Mata­mata-Pi­ako dis­trict.

The event was held in part­ner­ship be­tween Mata­mata-Pi­ako Dis­trict Coun­cil and its com­mit­tee Te Manawhenua Fo­rum mo MatamataPiako.

Barnes, along with the com­mit­tee’s chair­per­son, Te Ao Marama Maaka, wel­comed and of­fi­cially opened the day.
