TEN GREAT REASONS TO Local shops often stock a high percentage of local sourced goods which do not require long car and bus journeys, helping reduce our global footprint. REASON 7. Shopping local saves the environment PRIME Minister John Key has a ticket to ride the first rafting trip around Wero Whitewater Park and he’s pretty keen to give it a go. At the official earth turn- ing ceremony on December 4, Mr Key joined Sir Noel Robin- son, chairman of the Counties Manukau Pacific Trust, to lay the foundation stone for the new development at Vodafone Events Centre, Manukau. When the formalities con- cluded, Sir Noel presented Mr Key with a ticket to be in the first raft to experience the white-wa- ter park that promises to be an international attraction. Included in the first stage of Wero are a grade-four, white- water Olympic-standard course and a grade-two course for learners. Both courses will be open for recreation use by the general public as well as schools, youth development organisations, sports groups, weekend warriors and corporates. Wero Whitewater Park will have the first and only 4.5 metre operable water drop in the world, inspired by rafting on Kaituna River, Bay of Plenty. International sports groups are eagerly awaiting the antici- pated opening in early 2016 and on December 5 the World Mas- ters Games 2017 announced the kayaking event will be held at Wero. Events centre chief executive Richard Jeffery says: “All going well, Wero will open in early 2016 and Vodafone Events Cen- tre will have a point of differ- ence that no one will be able to match. “This will attract further developments and in particular a hotel development.” VIP guests who joined last week’s celebration included Graeme Dingle of the Founda- tion for Youth Development, Kit Wong of the Auckland Council Business Advisory Panel, and Olympic kayakers Luuka Jones, Mike Dawson and Ian Ferguson. Community leaders also showing their support for Wero included Jim Donald of the Howick Local Board, Bruce Pul- man of HEB Construction, Rev Mark Beale of St Elizabeths in Clendon, and Matt Barker of AUT University.
