Out in the com­mu­nity

Waitaki Herald - - NEWS -

It was great this week­end to visit Cape Wan­brow and see the com­mu­nity work to­gether to pull off an­other worth­while project.

Vol­un­teers from the coun­cil, the com­mu­nity gar­dens, the Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion and a num­ber of busi­nesses and com­mu­nity groups planted 600 trees at the Cape on Satur­day to add to its re­fur­bished moun­tain bike track. The plant­ing was the first of many so keep an eye for an op­por­tu­nity to help at other events. See our story and photo on page 3.

I also had the plea­sure of meet­ing Edith Wicks this week, whose story you will have seen on page 1. The fact that Edith is 90 and still en­joys be­ing ac­tive is an in­spi­ra­tion for all ages.
