South Waikato News - - NEWS - By ADEN MILES

South Waikato Dis­trict Coun­cil had ap­proved fund­ing to the Waikato River Trails Char­i­ta­ble Trust of more than $15,000.

The fund­ing of $15,251.11 is the full amount it re­quested.

The funds, dis­trib­uted as part of April’s Creative Com­mu­ni­ties Scheme Al­lo­ca­tion, will aid a gate­way pro­ject that is ex­pected to cost $16,451.11.

South Waikato Dis­trict Coun­cil Act­ing Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment man­ager Cindy Kent said the art­work would be at the gate­way to the Waikato River Trails.

‘‘ The art­work it­self will cel­e­brate our dis­trict, com­mu­nity, Waikato River, his­tory and be a trib­ute to the trails and all who have been in­volved,’’ she told South Waikato News.

‘‘It was felt by the Grants Com­mit­tee that this pro­ject filled the cri­te­ria set out un­der the Creative Com­mu­ni­ties Scheme.’’
