Foxton Fair all set to kick off New Year
the environment when industries, farms and councils apply to discharge effluent to the Manawatu River, its tributaries and other waterways.
By focusing on effluent discharge – commercial wastewater, farm runoff, stormwater drainage, or partially treated effluent – WECA aims to treat the problem at the source. Using the submission process under the Resource Management Act and regional planning rules, WECA seeks to divert all discharges to land or to treat the effluent to a higher standard.
So reserve Monday, January 2 from 9am to 3pm to enjoy a day at the beach sauntering around the stalls, seeing the kids have the time of their lives, and helping the environment while you do it. The Manawatu Estuary - a Ramsar wetland of international significance – is within easy reach of the Dawick Street Reserve on Seabury Ave, and not far from Foxton Beach’s national awardwinning Little White Rabbit cafe.
There’s easy access and plenty of parking, including loading places for those with disabilities.
Anyone wanting stalls should contact WECA fair through Mike Smith 021 0868 5886.
Fun in the sun at the Foxton Beach New Year Fair.
