Love Wainuiomata

Be involved in something special! The 7-Day Makeover is about being creative and hands-on. It's the perfect family or school holidays activity. How often do people, and especially children, get to have their say and make their mark in the heart of town?

So come on down and help make a difference for all the community to enjoy. Whether you live in Wainuiomata or you're a visitor this project is for you! It lets you bring the fun, relaxing feeling in your home into the town centre. It's an 'all hands on deck' event. Everyone can give it a go from children and teens through to adults.

Come try it out for just 1 hour or as long as you want. We have the resources, tools and a budget to make sure it's fun and free for you to be involved.

Sun and Mon are the ideas and planning days. Tues - Sat are the creating and installing days.

Come share your skills or try something new from building, painting, and art to knitting, gardening and decorating - and everything in between!

It's about having a go, sharing what you know, and getting into the creativity, team spirit and some DIY.

Fun. No need to book. Open to all ages and abilities from kids to seniors. Open to everyone whether or not you live in Wainuiomata. Children aged 15 years or younger need to be supervised, please.

Plus every hour you spend helping on the 7-Day Makeover gives you an entry into our raffle draw to win fun prizes like toys and treats.

Day One: Sunday 25 Sept is hosted in Wainuiomata Mall (Queen St end). It's all about generating ideas. What would help us all relax or have fun in Queen St? Where do we want to put things? Get creative and share ideas so we can all decide on some key project we're going to create. The more people involved the more gets done!

Day Two: Monday 26 Sept is hosted in Wainuiomata Mall (Queen St end). It's all about planning the logistics for all the different projects. The night session, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm let people find out about the projects and what's needed. Even if you miss this you can still just come along Tues-Sat to help out.

Day Three - Day Six: Tues 27 Sept to Sat 1 Oct is out in the Queen St community hub, reserve, and shopping area. It's all about the Making of the projects which could be anything from painting and gardening to sewing and building plus a whole lot of other skills. Anyone can be involved and make a difference.

Day Seven: Sat 1 Oct is the final day of making. At 4pm near the Wainuiomata War Memorial the completed 7-Day Makeover will be celebrated and officially opened by our Mayor Ray Wallace.

First week of the school holidays. First week of Daylight Savings. Come have fun and be proud of what you have achieved.
