Katikati Advertiser - - Your Community Voice -

Katch Katikati will take over the man­age­ment of the Katikati Visi­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre (VIC) from West­ern Bay of Plenty District Coun­cil on July 1. For the first cou­ple of months while coun­cil is still at the main road premises, the in­for­ma­tion cen­tre will be run­ning un­der the cur­rent hours and con­di­tions, but come the sum­mer sea­son they will be look­ing at ex­tended hours. Katch Katikati’s Jac­qui Knight says they are look­ing for vol­un­teers to help in the VIC pre­dom­i­nantly for week­end shifts. Al­though vol­un­teers will man the VIC desk, there will al­ways be an­other per­son on to en­sure safety and se­cu­rity. Any­one keen to help out can con­tact Kristin on 549-5250.
