Paint up­grade please

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

Is it too late to put a coat of paint over the blue Farm­ers’ Mar­ket build­ing to cel­e­brate the Rugby World Cup?

This build­ing is highly vis­i­ble to all pass­ing traf­fic on State High­way One and in a prime po­si­tion to show Toko­roa’s sup­port for the All Blacks.

How stun­ning the build­ing could look, painted in All Black colours, with large World Cup flags lin­ing the roof frontage.

The ex­ist­ing art work on the front of the build­ing, high­light­ing the Pasi­fika cul­ture of our district, would also ben­e­fit from a freshly painted back­ground.

Toko­roa has a proud as­so­ci­a­tion with a num­ber of past and present All Blacks who spent their for­ma­tive years in the town. Let’s cel­e­brate the ‘sons of Toko­roa’ with a coat of paint.

B Gra­ham, Toko­roa
