Support from the community was in full force at the Green Bay Community House Neighbours Day working bee held last month - originally scheduled for April but postponed due to lock down.
Around 30 adults and 20 children turned up to help out with the gardening projects scheduled for the day. GBCH manager Sara was blown away with the turn out, and the attendees themselves mentioned the large numbers, which really helped to spread the workload.
“We were lucky enough to receive Neighbours Day funding from the Whau Local Board, which we used to supply our wonderful helpers with morning tea and lunch on the day”, said Sara. “The treats were well received and gave the crew much needed energy to continue smashing through the jobs”.
Many of the workers commented on how wonderful it was to see such great community spirit. No doubt they left the event with full hearts and full bellies thanks to Neighbours Day!
