Gates should be re­stored

South Waikato News - - NEWS / HE PU¯RONGORONGO -

I would thank Gail Sned­don for sav­ing th­ese gates from go­ing out of the dis­trict. I first no­ticed the gates were miss­ing about 10 years ago. I wrote a let­ter to the South Waikato News en­quir­ing about them, no­body at the time seemed to know what had hap­pened to them. So to find they are still in the dis­trict is very pleas­ing.

On read­ing Gail Sned­don’s let­ter, I con­tacted the Mayor Neil Sin­clair, to see what he and the coun­cil were go­ing to do about restor­ing the gates to their right­ful place. He told me over the phone he would ask the CEO to look into the mat­ter with the pos­si­bil­ity of re pur­chas­ing them and hav­ing them re­stored to their right­ful place. It would be nice if one ouf our lo­cal com­pa­nies could fi­nance the cost of the restora­tion and re­place­ment of th­ese gates at the sports grounds.
