Issue No. 120 - 20 September 2003
Clean Up NZ Week
One Hour for our River
This year the Clean Up NZ Week coincides with the International Year of Freshwater.
Members from the Whanganui River Clubs, with support from the River City FM and the Wanganui District Council, are giving an hour this Sunday to clean up the Whanganui River from Aramoho to Castlecliff. The aim of Sunday's effort is clear litter from the river within the urban area. Whanganui River Clubs will use boats to clean the river while the community is being asked to collect litter from the riverbanks.
To register contact River City FM (06) 345 8564 or the Wanganui District Council (06) 349 0001. You can register during Clean Up NZ Week or register with a team leader on the day. When you register you will go into the draw to win spot prizes that will be given away at the free BBQ after the clean up.
Team leaders will be wearing neck tags and will issue bags, gloves and directions at these locations. Those helping out must wear covered footwear and appropriate clothing for conditions. Children must be supervised and adults will be delegated to handle sharp objects.
Buses sponsored by Horizons Regional Council.
Thank you to the following organisations for their generous donations and support: Classic Hits River City FM, Countdown Supermarket, McDonalds Family Restaurant, Crystal Valley Mineral Water, Video Ezy and the Waimarie Paddle Steamer.
