Carnival, celebrations, candy floss

The wet and windy conditions couldn’t spoil the fun at Waiuku Netball’s Carnival Day on Saturday.
Hundreds of people turned out to enjoy celebrating 60 years of netball in Waiuku. It was a day of fun and festivities and the knock-out tournament and dress ups were key features of the occasion.
Charming Smurfs, busy bumble bees and adorable angels were just a few of the creative costumes that were on show. The upbeat music blaring across the Centre together with the tempting aroma of popcorn and candy floss proved very popular with everyone.
One of the highlights of the day was the exhibition match which showcased netball from yesteryear.
Dressed in their black tunics, white shirts, red ties and matching waist girdles, the players from the “Diamond Oldies” team, took the court and to the delight of the crowd, punished the younger team mainly by way of antics, bribes and one-eyed umpires.
Williment Travel kindly donated blue puffer jackets and these were awarded to players, coaches, managers and supporters through the day. Organisers were delighted with response from all clubs and Kim Voigt, Jubilee spokesperson commented, “Wow, what an incredible day we’ve all enjoyed!  Waiuku Netball is in good heart and it was wonderful to see everyone get into the spirit of our Diamond Jubilee Celebrations.”

The rain came down in bucket loads this Saturday (24 June) but it didn't stop all of these netballers having some fun at the Carnival day.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
