We Say, You Say: Paeroa Racecourse

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hauraki Herald

With a snip of the bolt cutters, the Paeroa community was welcomed back to their racecourse after an eight year absence.

The site was a purchased on November 3 by joint buyers the Wright Family Foundation, established by Wayne and Chloe Wright, and local developer Tim Bartells. Community leaders have made proposals for the site including a caravan park for the annual highland games, a twilight market or commerical and residential development.

What would you like done with the site?

Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.

- Green is for I'm OK

- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in

- Red is for an emergency

This is a safe and simple way let others know how you're doing while also looking out for others in your community.
