The Beach Haven Signs have been mounted to the existing posts on Beach Haven Road and Rangatira Road gateways.
Huge THANKS to everyone involved in this long process, including the KLB who provided the funding, John Christenson who picked up the components of the signs and did the finishing work required on the ply, to Brent Hepple who completed the sign construction work and oversaw the mounting process, and to Josh Hepple and Tim Johns and Stephen Chmiel for the technical assistance on the day, and to Ashleigh Johns for her expert skills and advice right throughout this process.
Community Feedback has been relentlessly positive with a few comments about the Rangatira Road signage being on its side (this is the correct way to position these!).
As all current projects have been completed, the group has agreed to put the Placemaking Group into recess until Feb 2018. Gardening days will continue each month to ensure that Opaketai is maintained to the high standard by the community.
The group have made a massive impact on the local area, including the Opaketai Beach Haven Garden and more recently Gateways signs.
