On November 24, more than 25 of Central Hawke's Bay's shearing fraternity and eager volunteers gave up their time for a good cause.

The Olsen family of Argyll offered shearing of their ewes and hoggets towards refurbishment of the Waipawa and Districts Centennial Memorial Pool. The working bee organised by Marc and Trish Ludlow had young and not so young muck in for the pool.

More than $2000 dollars was raised towards Stage One, which is completion of the two pools.

Community Fundraising Committee member Pip Burne was overwhelmed by the support.

"A large convoy of vehicles left Waipawa in the morning and we were joined by more helpers throughout the day. Some even travelled from as far as Napier, all with fond memories of the pool."
