By RANI TIMOTI A long walkway fence in Helensville has been re- painted thanks to staff at ACE Insurance. The 15 staff members took a morning to paint the walkway's 300-metre fence grey as part of Te Awaroa Youth Club's on- going mission to reduce the amount of tagging in the township. The project was co- ordinated by United Way NZ, an independent, non-religious, non- political, volunteer-based organisation which encourages generosity by brokering resources like money, time and skills between individuals, businesses and the com- munity. United Way New Zea- land project manager Selwyn Powell says the staff didn't think they'd be able to finish the big painting job but were surprised at how many hands make light work''. A barbecue was pro- vided after the work by the Rodney Local Board Council and the hospit- able youth club staff led by Heidi Van Duyn gave a presentation and arranged a team- building exercise. Rodney Local Board member Brenda Steele was impressed with the efforts of the workers travelling from Auckland to make a contribution to Helensville. Mrs Steele is also rapt with Heidi and her team for their endless dedi- cation to their tag-free project. I don t think people realise that the reason power transformers are painted is because they have been tagged,'' she says. Residents can report tagging for Auckland Council to co-ordinate groups to paint over it. Call the council on 09 301 0101. Visit nor-westnews. co.nz to see the photos of the club's activities.
