Joining forces on Waitangi day
by Ann van Engelen
The Selwyn baseball, Rolleston rugby and softball clubs, Fembots netball and Golden Rollys rugby teams along with the Rolleston Reserve committee are presenting a family day out whilst fundraising at Rolleston Reserve on Waitangi Day.
“We are excited to join with the Selwyn community and celebrate Waitangi Day, play some touch rugby, backyard cricket, listen to kiwi music and meet new people,” says organiser James Andrew Fleck.
“There will be children’s activities, a variety of food and coffee available, stalls, car boot sales, bouncy castles, a sausage sizzle and hangi by the Scout Den corner. The funds raised will go toward the dugouts at the new shared diamond at Foster Park, sending our junior teams to the national championships and other activities and projects.
“We plan to make this an annual baseball versus softball team challenge in a fun atmosphere for all to enjoy. As we celebrate Waitangi weekend would love individuals and families to come and join us. Any other local organisation are also welcome to fundraise for themselves.”
For those interested in fundraising the costs are $20 a car boot sale and $25 for a tent site.
Hangi is $10 a silver tray and presales are available. Contact James Andrew Fleck on Facebook.
The event is 10am till 4pm on Waitangi Day — Wednesday, February 6 at the Rolleston Reserve.
