Volunteers spruce up Waiuku



A massive 110 volunteers gave a few hours of their time on Saturday to give the Waiuku Township a much needed spruce up.

The Waiuku and Business Development Association would like to thank everyone who lent a hand, with a special note of thanks going to the 80 Papakura Latter-Day Saints who came over to help on the day.
Throughout the morning the volunteers worked tirelessly behind the Kentish Hotel and carpark, the old New World building car park and surrounding areas, including Queen Street, Alley Way and tidying the bank in River Lane.
“The transformation is amazing and we really hope we get more locals on board for the next clean up so we can make even more progress,” says Town Manager, Sharlene Druyven.
Sharlene said that a thank you is also needed to the Manukau Beautification Trust, who facilitated the event and supplied all the tools and paint for the clean-up. The Waiuku Business and Development Association catered for the sausage sizzle at the end for all the volunteers.
“To all who were involved, thank you for instilling an even bigger sense of pride in our community,” said Sharlene.
The team at The Post would like to thank everyone that participated in cleaning up our carpark.
We cannot believe the difference it has made and are incredibly appreciative of the effort that was made.

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.
