As well we are promoting the many opportunities there are for residents to get involved in local community groups in their spare time either as participants or volunteers.

"We are also taking the opportunity to promote the Papatoetoe Library to get more adults and children to use it on a regular basis. Come along and join in the fun, meet new people and see what is on offer in your local community".
