Grate­ful for up­grade con­tri­bu­tion

South Waikato News - - OPINION/NEWS -

On be­half of the Royal NZ Plun­ket so­ci­ety (Waikato), I would like to thank the Pu­taruru com­mu­nity for vot­ing for Plun­ket in the open­ing com­pe­ti­tion at Z Pu­taruru.

As we cur­rently do not have a vol­un­teer group in Pu­taruru it is more dif­fi­cult to raise funds with­out peo­ple on the ground.

The Plun­ket clinic build­ing is owned by the com­mu­nity and main­tained by vol­un­teer ef­forts so it was fan­tas­tic to re­ceive the do­na­tion from Z for $950. This will con­trib­ute to an up­grade on the muchloved Plun­ket clinic build­ing in Overdale St.

Thanks again Z Pu­taruru for giv­ing the Pu­taruru com­mu­nity the op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue to show its sup­port for an or­gan­i­sa­tion which has been work­ing to give the best start for chil­dren for the last 105 years.

For $150,000 per year the pools could charge 10 cents en­try fee not $4.50 an adult and make the re­ces­sion pass with clean healthy ex­er­cise at the pools. This coun­cil has your let­ter to look for­ward too. Mi­cro loans, (even if it sat in gold bul­lion, up 26 per cent over the year), would be a safer and pro­duc­tive ef­fort. Staff have a lot to an­swer for ad­vis­ing the coun­cil to go down this path. Write now. R. Young Toko­roa grubby place with garage sale signs tied to road signs and nailed to trees; most are not taken down and re­main there for some time.

Come on coun­cil­lors, this is not a good look for Toko­roa.

Con­sider pass­ing a by­law to clean these places up in­stead of talk­ing about the sports sta­dium and river trails all the time. T Demp­ster
