Team ef­fort ti­dies up

South Waikato News - - NEWS - By MATHEW GROCOTT

Clean Up New Zealand Week was recog­nised with two ef­forts to make the South Waikato District a ti­dier place.

On Mon­day last week staff from Toko­roa New World cleaned up rub­bish around Lake Moananui.

New World was also a spon­sor of the week.

On Wed­nes­day it was the turn of chil­dren from Ti­rau School who cleaned up around their town.

Both ef­forts were with the as­sis­tance of South Waikato District Coun­cil who supplied rub­bish bags and gloves for vol­un­teers.

Coun­cil lit­ter con­trol of­fi­cer Jules Rameka was also on hand to help out.

So lit­tle rub­bish was in Ti­rau that the school stu­dents ac­tu­ally strug­gled to fill their bags – some­thing which im­pressed staff at the school.

The stu­dents ti­died the area around the Ti­rau skate park and nearby play­ground.
