To put your child’s name on the birthday list
include name and date of birth (up to the age of 13 years old) and a contact phone number. It has been a long time coming but Dannevirke Host Lions have finally completed their Lions International Centenary Project, with Tararua’s Mayor Tracey Collis opening the domain barbecue on Thursday December 13.
In 2017 Lions International turned 100 and its member clubs were challenged to create a project to benefit people in their own neighbourhood.
Dannevirke Host Lions, after considering a number of options chose to install an electric barbecue in the upper domain, next to the children’s playground.
Planning was soon underway, and Tararua District Council was keen to see it take place.
Sourcing a good product was facilitated by local company Metalform putting Lions in touch with Urban Effects, a company which specialises in the products.
Funding for over half the cost was received from a Pub Charities donation of $15,000 and local contractors were happy to assist with the installation.
Dannevirke Host Lions Club says it is grateful to Bruce Hunt of BLH Contracting, Hamish Illsley of HT Illsley Building, Steve Prenter of Prenter’s Ready Mix and Stuart Forbes Electrician for their expertise and time.
Once the project was underway it took a month to complete with Lions providing much of the labour.
It is opening just in time for summer and the barbecue is free for the public to use.
