POSTPONED - Bothamley Park Community Clean-up

The Team from Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities

We’ve made the decision to postpone the Bothamley Park Community Clean-up.

As you all know, COVID-19 (coronavirus) is a serious developing situation across Aotearoa and the world, with new advice coming out each day.

The most important thing for us is to look after the health and wellbeing of our community and do everything we can to make sure everybody stays safe during these uncertain times. Let’s work together to protect and care for one another. Thank you for your interest in joining us for the clean-up and your understanding about it being postponed – we’ll be in touch down the track to let you know when it’s going ahead.

ORIGINAL POST

We’re teaming up with Porirua City Council, the Bothamley Park crew and the community to help clean up Bothamley Park – the green heart of Porirua. Bothamley Park is a stunning green space with ecological links to Te Awarua-o-Porirua Harbour, Pāuatahanui Inlet and Belmont Regional Park and has around 500 neighbours. The community clean-up event is an opportunity for those neighbours and others who use the park to come together and show the park a little care. March 28 falls within the dates for Neighbours Day Aotearoa 2020.

Come along and help us give this much-loved community space a spruce up. We’ll provide rubbish bags, gloves for the clean-up and some kai to share.

WHEN: Saturday 28 March, 1–4 pm

WHERE: Meet at Bothamley Park entrance off­ Warspite Ave (opposite 118 Warspite Ave).

To let us know you’re coming, please email info@poriruadevelopment.co.nz

Nau mai, haere mai – all are welcome.

Poll: Are swear words no longer?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

In 2023, Apple amended its autocorrect function to allow Iphone users to freely use their intended word without mentioning 'ducks'. Is this a sign of the times? Are swear words no longer taboo in our communities or workplaces?

Type 'Not For Print' if you wish your comments to be excluded from the Conversations column of your local paper.
