Wairoa District Council is committed to establishing its vision – “Connected Communities. Desirable Lifestyles. Treasured Environments.”
The Mayoral Grants Scheme provides generic, discretionary small donations with a simple process for community members/organisations seeking financial support.
The Mayor and Personal Assistant will oversee the administration of the Mayoral Grants Scheme.
An annual budget will be allocated for the implementation of the scheme.
The maximum amount that can be funded, for any single request, will be generally below $200 (but this can be varied for significant projects).
The Mayor and Personal Assistant will report back to Council, as soon as practicable, on the outcomes of any grants given under the scheme.
Please write a letter addressed to the Mayor with the following details:
Council provides these donations on the grounds that you:
J Spence - Spirit of Adventure 2015
Wairoa Club - North Island Clubs NZ Table tennis championships held over Queens Birthday this year
We hosted 105 visitors from Kamo, South Taranaki and Auckland over the very enjoyable three days with perfect weather to match. We are extremely proud to say that the feedback has been overwhelming. I can assure you that we have done our little town very proud. One of the written responses we had is that the “Kamo lot will certainly remember their trip to Wairoa for many years to come”. We also had requests to host this tournament here every year because they enjoyed it so much. Wairoa is the perfect venue for these types of tournaments with the Accommodation, Club and Wairoa Community being so central (all within walking distance).
We have estimated that this tournament generated approximately $45-50k to the local economy. Being made up with approximately $15k for accommodation, each person spent $75 on food that's an additional $7.5kand also ($200 minimum) each spent on Entertainment that adds another $20k to the local economy. Again another achievement we are very proud of.
