For Immediate release

September sport month has activity options for every one

September is going to be a month full of low cost of free activities and events in the east Hamilton area, with a range of options available for all fitness levels. The event is being held by the East Hamilton Sport and Recreation Hub.

The purpose of this initiative is to be a promotional tool to raise awareness and increase the overall usage and participation of sport and recreational facilities, events and existing programs in the east Hamilton area. This includes University of Waikato, Eastlink clubs and Hamilton city council facilities and programs.

“The project supports clubs, schools, and the University of Waikato to work collaboratively to promote the benefits of partnerships, which result in growing participation” says East Hamilton Sport and Recreation Hub project manager, Zoe Toombs.

The project is a partnership between Hamilton City Council, Sport Waikato and the University of Waikato and is also supported and primarily funded by Sport NZ.

There is a wide range of activities on offer during the month of September from Zumba and local walking groups, to Ultimate Frisbee. A calendar of events will be published and advertised in the coming weeks.

“This September sports month is a great opportunity to try a new activity that you might not have previously been aware of. All activities during this month are low cost at $5 or less” says Toombs.

Also as part of the September sports month, Eastlink clubs at Lugton Park will be having a community open day for all to attend on Saturday 20th September. There will be facility tours, have a go sessions, food, and NZ Sports Representatives.

Professor Ian Shirley: The Budget That Failed Auckland

The 2016 budget offered Auckland nothing in the way of vision or hope and it continued the National Government’s threats against the Auckland Council. Threatening the Council with over-riding its democratic processes if it fails to release land for housing is a bullying tactic aimed at diverting attention away from the fundamental problems with housing in the region.

Shortly after the embargo lifted at 2pm news organisations started filing reports claiming that health, and to a lesser extent housing and education, were the ‘big winners’ out of the Budget.

Max Rashbrooke On The 2016 Budget

The best label for this year’s announcement by Bill English might be the ‘Bare Minimum Budget’. It does the bare minimum to defuse potential political damage in a range of areas – homelessness and health are prime among them – but almost nothing to address the country’s most deep-rooted, systemic social problems. Indeed the Budget hints that these problems may get worse. More>>
