Local contractors will be flat tack at the Hugh Hayward Domain in Ngatea this week.
Work on a new cycling/walking track around the edge of the Hugh Hayward domain is set to continue all week, provided the weather plays ball, and should be complete by Friday.
Locals taking the lead
A small group of locals helped plan and design the track, and local contractors Peter Schuler, Warren Hill, Steve Barker and Scotty Bobcats offered their time and expertise to get the work done.
Plains Ward Councillor Ross Harris has been involved with the project since its inception and says it’s exciting to see the community-led project come together. He is also grateful to the Ngatea Lions who have taken the lead role of ‘project management’.
“Without such service clubs within our communities, projects such as these would never see the light of day. It is certainly very gratifying to see locals taking a lead in enhancing their existing green field spaces for the benefit of the community,” he said.
