Tamahere Lions have tested the new Tamahere Park public barbecue and given it their seal of approval.
Lions members along with representatives of supporters of the project gave the twin barbecue plates a test run yesterday at a social event.
“Lots of hard work has gone into fundraising to bring this wonderful amenity to the Tamahere Community,” said Tamahere Lions member Susan McHugh.
“It’s not quite finished yet so watch this space for the grand opening.”
McHugh said the Lions were indebted to the many supporters who helped with the project. They included Regal Haulage, Go Wire Electrical, Roofing Renovations, Transpower, Anton Berry Builders, Lloyd Morgan Lion’s Club’s Charitable Trust, Lions District Banking Fund and Fosters.
The barbecue is located near the Tamahere playground and skatepark on Wiremu Tamihana Drive.
