Wairoa residents are being encouraged to bring their spades, shovels and gloves to the Destination Playground this Saturday.

Council is encouraging the community to come along to the playground at 9.30am to help Wairoa District Council and Opus plant trees at the playground.

Opus has donated $2500 to the playground planting programme.

Council’s Property Manager Luke Knight says the initiative is part of the next stage of construction, which includes beautification works around the playground.

A team of helpers from Opus Napier will also be joining forces with the community on Saturday to help with the planting.

As part of the planting project, Council and Opus have sourced more than 150 plants, 10 cubic metres of bark mulch, 85m of weed mat and 1 cubic metre of topsoil.

“This is a great initiative to help beautify a fun, interactive space in our community,” Mr Knight says.

“I would like to extend my thanks, on behalf of Council, to Opus for contributing to this project… the playground is being well used and adding these features will make it an even more impressive place for families to hang out.”

Opus Team Leader Andrew Sowersby says he is excited to be part of this project.

“This playground is a great facility for Wairoa families, and Opus is pleased to have the opportunity to contribute what it can to such a great community.”
