New play area open
After more than a year of fundraising and planning, O¯ haupo¯ Playcentre is opening its new playground.
Last year the parent cooperative decided its 15-year-old playground was due for a much-needed facelift.
So the group got busy fundraising and applying for grants.
Parents organised a firewood sale, wine fundraiser, movie night, raffles and pig sale.
They also received grants from O¯ haupo¯ Lions, Pirongia Ward Committee
