Western Heights residents are being invited to an event which celebrates their community.
Rotorua District Council and local service organisations have been working together to organise the event for the
Western Heights community.
The Western Heights Community Day is happening on Saturday from 10am to 3pm at the Park Road Youth Space and everyone is invited to join in.
District Council youth projects officer Jill Campbell said the event promised to be a fun-filled and entertaining way to
celebrate what a "great community'' existed at Western Heights.
"The community day will be a entertaining fun outing for the whole whanau, where people can gain information on
services available in their area and find out ways to get involved in their community,'' she said.
"Another big part of the day is to encourage neighbours to get to know each other and to utilise the recent upgrade to facilities on Park Rd Reserve.''
Mrs Campbell said the day's events would include food stalls, children's activities, skate boarding demos, free health checks, music, police dog show, fire trucks and a free sausage sizzle.
She said there would also be opportunities to see what's on offer in Western Heights, a community feedback booth, and volunteer and leadership roles for people to play.
