Town gets big scrub for visitors Clean up: Papakura town centre manager Kathleen Lindesay flies the flag of Romania while members of the Jesus Christ Church of Latter Day Saints, one the major volunteering groups, practise their cleaning routine for this weekend. Photo: FIONA GOODALL By HINERANGI VAIMOSO She scrubs up well and more than 100 people are set to prove it when they set out to spruce up Papakura on Saturday. The Town Centre Tidy-up initiative is part of Auckland mayor Len Brown's mission to polish up the entire city in time for the Rugby World Cup 2011 which kicks off in less than a month. Papakura town centre man- ager Kathleen Lindesay says volunteers will be painting shopfronts, gardening, water blasting and picking up rub- bish. We're really keen to get people out and about promot- ing that community spirit -- putting the shine and polish back on Papakura before we show her off during the Rugby World Cup,'' Ms Lindesay says. Another Auckland Council initiative is the Adopt a Sec- ond Team programme for which Papakura has taken Romania. Papakura is one of 39 town centres between Wellsford and Pukekohe being freshened up before September 9 when the international rugby tourna- ment starts. Auckland Council will help town centres by providing a project co-ordinator and additional resources such as rubbish bags and rubbish collections, paint and cleaning supplies. Mr Brown is encouraging Aucklanders to spare a few hours to help out. These sort of activities cre- ate community pride and strengthened local networks. I'm sure anyone who takes part will be pleased they con- tributed to making their town centre shine,'' he says. If we get RWC 2011 right, all our visitors will return home singing Auckland's praises and New Zealand will feel the benefits for years to come.'' People interested in volunteering for the Papakura clean-up can meet the team at Central Park on Opaheke Rd at 9am on August 27. Volunteers will be spread along Great South Rd, O'Shannesey Rd and Railway St West. A barbecue will be held at the meeting point for volunteers after the clean-up which is expected to run through until noon.
