Forum to work with coun­cil


The Pi­ako Catch­ment Forum is ex­cited to be work­ing in part­ner­ship with Mata­mata-Pi­ako District Coun­cil and Keep Mor­rinsville Beau­ti­ful to bring our com­mu­nity to­gether and par­tic­i­pate in the na­tional Keep New Zealand Beau­ti­ful Clean Up Week.

Regis­tra­tions are of­fi­cially open, and with over 5000 in­di­vid­u­als al­ready signed up it is ex­pected that more than 50,000 will join a com­mu­nity clean up as part of Keep New Zealand Beau­ti­ful Clean Up Week on from Septem­ber 11 to 17.

Each year hun­dreds of or­gan­i­sa­tions, busi­nesses and com­mu­ni­ties do the right thing and or­gan­ise a lo­cal com­mu­nity clean up as part of this ini­tia­tive.

In 2016, over 40,000 vol­un­teers took part in 625 events na­tion­wide.

Heather Saunderson, CEO of Keep New Zealand Beau­ti­ful, said Clean Up Week of­fers in­di­vid­u­als, fam­i­lies, busi­nesses, groups and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions the op­por­tu­nity to do some­thing for their lo­cal com­mu­nity.

‘‘At Keep New Zealand Beau­ti­ful, our mission is to ed­u­cate the next gen­er­a­tion of Tidy Ki­wis and work to­gether to­ward cre­at­ing a bet­ter New Zealand. Clean-Up Week is the op­por­tu­nity to make a tan­gi­ble dif­fer­ence in your lo­cal com­mu­nity and we are com­mit­ted to ex­pand­ing this event every year.’’

On Satur­day Septem­ber 16 put on your walking shoes and bring the whole fam­ily down to Av­enue Rd en­trance to the Mor­rinsville River Walk at 10am.

With ex­cit­ing news to share the team from the Pi­ako Catch­ment Forum will be tak­ing a guided walk through the river walk, while do­ing our bit to make a dif­fer­ence in the com­mu­nity.

With the sup­port of Mor­rinsville Ro­tary, PCF will be shout­ing all vol­un­teers to a bar­be­cue af­ter ev­ery­one’s great ef­forts to make a dif­fer­ence for Mor­rinsville and our wa­ter­ways. The PCF team is look­ing for­ward to see­ing ev­ery­one there.

Let the Pi­ako Catch­ment Forum know that you are keen on help­ing out by go­ing to their Face­book page and click­ing on their ‘Mor­rinsville River Walk Fam­ily Event’ and reg­is­ter­ing your in­ter­est.
