Paihia Village Green Enhancement Update - November


The FOCUS PAIHIA VILLAGE GREEN PHANTOMS were out in force again on Monday 19 October, tidying up the roadside edge of the PAIHIA VILLAGE GREEN for the summer ahead, just in time for theIT FESTIVAL. The general tidy up involved rubbish collection, weeding, some new planting and a load of shell to top up a few uneven bits.

On Saturday 28 November there will be a community working bee for Stage One of the northern edge enhancement. This being the area next to the shops. Carpentry and bricklaying skills will be needed! The plan for the day is to start with the timber seating next to the ramp near the post office and brick/wood seating near the road. For this 3 people will be needed who are familiar with carpentry and 3 people needed who have bricklaying skills. Also general helpers to support these. If you have the skills required and you think you can help, please contact HENK KUIPER on 0275131900 or send him an email
