Around 170 enthusiastic volunteers, including a large group of St Cuthbert's College students, gathered with their spades, boots and gloves to take part in the annual Centennial Park Community Planting Day on Saturday 4th July. The planting of 1,650 native shrubs along the bank beside the seventh hole of Pupuke Golf Course, who prepared the ground for the project, means that this water catchment edge can now help reduce potential flooding of nearby properties. The Hibiscus and Bays Local Board financed the plants which were supplied by Scrub Growers in Wainui. A generous morning tea was provided by Bush Society members. Centennial Park is such a treasure in our community and is truly deserving of its national 'Healthy Park Award 2020'.
