Masterton may have taken out the top prize for Most Beautiful City (population over 20,000), but our very own Tuakau showed that community is the real winner on the day.
Tuakau community spirit leads to award
At a glimmering awards ceremony held in Hastings recently, The Tuakau Clean Up and Planting Group was named the winner of the Community Environmental Initiative Award. The honour, part of the ‘Beautiful Awards’, recognised innovative projects that achieved extraordinary environmental results by harnessing the power of partnership.
More than 70 people registered for the group’s 2017 cleanup. Rubbish removal was then followed by the planting of 150 native plants, and volunteers ranged in age from pre-schoolers to over 70s.
Keep up the great work Tuakau!
