Country Boys Toys gearing up

Country Boys Toys, a festival held at Aka Aka School, will be back in full swing on Saturday 10 March. The event, held from 10am until 4pm, is a plethora of large machinery, cars and everything country boys like. It is held to lift the profile of Aka Aka School.

Stu Muir, Aka Aka School board chairman and PTA member, says “it’s not really a money making thing as such but just to get people in the community more involved.”
Stu says “we really want to get a bus route put in from Puni to Aka Aka. All the kids are going to Pukekohe while we have some empty classrooms which just defies logic!” The funds raised from this event will support this.
“We are very excited to have helicopter flights over the whitebait habitat restoration project that the school has been involved in,” said Stu. “We also have Jason Bunyan coming to do demonstrations and he is a motor bike speedway champion!”

Country Boys Toys is $10 for adults, free for kids and anyone can attend. Stu says “it will be a great day for everyone! It helps the community and it helps us!”

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.
