New public park at Mairangi Arts Centre

Chris from Mairangi Bay

Next Monday 10.30-12.00 (and for the next few Mondays after that) we will be focusing on making "public seating" in the Mairangi Arts Centre park in our working bee, helping the students and teachers of Wairau Valley Special School Transition Class to learn and work towards their aims.

From 12.00 we will have an open discussion about how to improve the park and what else to do.

Please come along to learn, share, make, and play together.

This is your chance to contribute to the resident-led development of a new public space in our community.

If you have an interest in how this public space looks and feels please join in.

Let's make a gift to our neighbourhood and to the future.

Please let me know if you plan to attend. Free homemade coconut ice cream if you do.
