Photo friendly sign for Vil­lage

Havelock North Village Press - - News -

Tourists vis­it­ing Have­lock North and vil­lage lo­cals alike have a new spot to pose for pho­tos, with a sign go­ing up in the Vil­lage Green.

The sign, which says “Love Have­lock North” was funded by the Have­lock North Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion from their sculp­ture fund. It was made by Hast­ings sign­mak­ing com­pany Axis CNC, and in­stalled by Hast­ings District Coun­cil. Pres­i­dent of the Have­lock North Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion, Jane Mack­ersey, said the Vil­lage only had small signs say­ing it was Have­lock North up un­til now. The new sign would give peo­ple a place to take pic­tures, with Te Mata Peak in the back­ground, to re­mem­ber their time spent in the Vil­lage.

She said the sign gave peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to pose in a va­ri­ety of fun ways, such as pok­ing their head through the ‘O’.

The Vil­lage Green Sign is go­ing to be moved, to stop the space look­ing clut­tered.

Mack­ersey said the sign also helped cre­ate con­sis­tency for Have­lock North’s brand­ing. Those post­ing pic­tures with the sign to so­cial me­dia should use the hash­tag #love­have­loc­knorth.
