Clean-up the South Waikato

South Waikato News - - Your Health - STAFF

The Ware­house and New Zealand’s free and pri­vate neigh­bour­hood web­site Neigh­bourly.co.nz have part­nered up to launch an ini­tia­tive de­signed to bring neigh­bours to­gether to make a dif­fer­ence in their com­mu­ni­ties.

The Great Com­mu­nity Clean Up is a na­tional ini­tia­tive en­cour­ag­ing Ki­wis to get out into their com­mu­ni­ties to give them a clean up be­tween 3-9 Oc­to­ber 2016.

And we at the South Waikato News want you to let us know what ar­eas you think need clean­ing-up in the South Waikato so we can make a change.

The Ware­house Ex­ec­u­tive GM Com­mu­nity and En­vi­ron­ment Paul Walsh, says they’re hop­ing to see clean up events or­gan­ised in neigh­bour­hoods through­out the coun­try.

‘‘This is about bring­ing Ki­wis to­gether to make a real im­pact in their lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties, and it can start with just a small ges­ture,’’ he says.

‘‘Some­thing as sim­ple as pick­ing up rub­bish from your lo­cal street or park is a great way to get in­volved.’’

Neigh­bourly co-founder Casey Eden says the event is about en­cour­ag­ing ‘‘each and every one of us to take own­er­ship of the places we call home’’.

‘‘A Clean Up doesn’t have to be a huge ges­ture.’’
