Tremains Street As Awards come to Hastings District

Date: 16th April 2013

Tremains Street As Awards come to Hastings District

The inaugural Tremains Street As Awards have been launched in Hastings District.

Street As is an initiative of the Landmarks Trust and is a new twist on the typical garden awards. The competition encourages home and building owners to look at making some improvements to the front of their property which will add to the street appeal.

President of Hastings Landmarks Trust Joyce Barry says “The Tremains Street As Awards will encourage residents to give their homes and businesses more street appeal which will make the Hastings District a more beautiful place to live. Everyone in Havelock North, Flaxmere, Hastings and our coastal or rural communities are eligible to enter the awards.”

Joyce Barry says “It would be great if everyone in a particular street entered the awards as this could result in a massive improvement in the appeal of a neighbourhood. A lick of paint, fix a broken fence or replant the front garden are all things that could make a huge improvement to the way your business or street looks.”

Entry into the Tremains Street As Awards is free and your entry will entitle you to discounts and special offers from participating local businesses, garden centres and tradespeople, from one free trailer load at the Refuse Transfer Station, to 50% off lawn treatments and 20% off garden materials.

Entries close on 30th June, with judging taking place in November and the winners will be announced at the Landmarks Awards Ceremony on 3rd December in the Hawke’s Bay Opera House.

Entries can be made in three categories, residential, industrial or commercial. You could win up to $2,000 in prize money plus many more prizes including a sculpture by local artist, Ricks Terstappen.
Entry forms and further details are available at www.hastingsdc.govt.nz/streetas or you can pick up an entry form from any of the Hastings District Libraries.
