Get In­volved – have a go

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

More than 100 com­mu­nity events are planned for In­volve ’10.

The an­nual South Waikato fes­ti­val runs from Oc­to­ber 2 to 16 and is a chance for com­mu­nity groups to show­case what they do.

In­volve is an op­por­tu­nity for com­mu­nity groups, clubs and sport­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions to show­case what they do.

‘ ‘ Vol­un­tary groups are a life blood of our com­mu­ni­ties,’’ South Waikato District Coun­cil com­mu­nity devel­op­ment man­ager Amanda Hema said.

‘‘They in­crease com­mu­nity co­he­sion and pride while sup­port­ing the re­ten­tion of ser­vices and op­por­tu­ni­ties.

‘‘We can’t ex­pect fan­tas­tic towns if we don’t com­mit to build­ing them and these groups are a big part of that.’’

There are more than 100 events planned for In­volve ’ 10 in­clud­ing art ex­hi­bi­tions, cy­cling trips, rave par­ties, archery, school hol­i­day pro­grammes, girl guides, cir­cuit train­ing, indoor and out­door bowls, danc­ing, triathlon, poker run, mar­tial arts, youth row­ing and horse rid­ing.

De­tails on www.com­mu­ni­ty­con­nect. org. nz or in ad­verts in the South Waikato News.

‘‘In­volve ’ 10 will be heard on ra­dio, read in pa­pers, seen on posters and en­joyed by you – but only if you get in­volved. Make the most of the chance to try some­thing new,’’ said Mrs Hema.
