The Tribune (NZ) - - FRONT PAGE -

A new ver­sion of the the free fam­ily ad­ven­ture pro­gramme, the Palmy Dirty 30 has been launched in time for next week’s school hol­i­days.

Founder Heather Knox says the group has been work­ing with Des­ti­na­tion Manawatu, the City Coun­cil and Li­brary, and the Palmy Par­ents group, among oth­ers, to pro­mote the new chal­lenge, with copies down­load­able from http://palmy­dirty30.wee­bly.com/.

‘‘There are many se­ri­ous rea­sons be­hind this ini­tia­tive, how­ever we have pur­posely cho­sen to fo­cus on the fun, lit­tle bit silly, an­gle,’’ Heather says.

There’s also a Face­book page, face­book.com/Palmy­Dirty30/ and on Twit­ter and In­sta­gram as #Palmy­Dirty30.

With Lin­klater Re­serve fund­ing start­ing in July, Heather and Helen Page have been in­vited to have in­put into the Lin­klater plans.

‘‘Our aim is to get as many fun and/or nat­u­ral play el­e­ments into Lin­klater Re­serve as pos­si­ble,’’ Heather says. ‘‘We are think­ing planes and agri­cul­tural ma­chin­ery, se­cret paths and na­ture trails, frog ponds, play equip­ment made out of tyres and the like. With the agri­cul­tural theme pro­posed for Lin­klater there is a lot of room for cre­ativ­ity.’’
