Meet your neigh­bours

South Waikato News - - NEWS - By HEATHER GABY

Do you know your neigh­bours?

We are all busy nowa­days and seem not to have time to stop and chat over the fence to friends and neigh­bours.

This sum­mer is the time to make a change. Neigh­bour­hood par­ties are planned for Fe­bru­ary at var­i­ous parks in Toko­roa so you can get to know your neigh­bours. These will be held ev­ery Fri­day evening from 5.30pm to 7pm in Fe­bru­ary and two in March.

Parks will be El­iz­a­beth Park, Kinder­garten Re­serve, Pa­panui Re­serve, Mau­reen Seipolt Re­serve, Glenkill Park and Lake Moananui.

Peo­ple in those neigh­bour­hoods will re­ceive an in­vite to the par­ties which will in­clude a sausage siz­zle, bouncy cas­tle, mu­sic and games. Re­gional Sports Awards The Brian Perry Waikato Re­gional Sports Awards evening is at the Claude­lands Event Cen­tre in Hamil­ton on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 2 at 6pm.

Austswim Teacher PD Still time to reg­is­ter for the Water Safety New Zealand swim teacher pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment day to be held at the In­door Pools in Toko­roa on Wed­nes­day, Jan­uary 25. The course, from 9am to 5pm, is free for two teach­ers from each school in the district. The course is a great re­fresher for those who cur­rently teach chil­dren to swim, or will of­fer ideas for those new in the role. With our high drown­ing rate this sum­mer, this course is a must.
