Save the date for Hutt City Discovery Day

Save the date for Hutt City Discovery Day

Sometimes it’s really easy to overlook what’s in your own backyard but Discovery Day is set to change that with a family-friendly day out that opens up local organisations, places and facilities.

Discovery Day, on Sunday 12 October, will showcase a range of local sites and activities with entry either free or by gold coin donation.

Participants will first pick up a treasure map then collect stamps at each location they visit to go in the draw to win great prizes, including Interislander and Air New Zealand travel vouchers.

Dowse Square will have a free sausage sizzle, face painting for the kids, a bouncy castle and the chance for people to meet and talk to local councillors.

A full list of locations is still being negotiated but so far includes:
• The Dowse Art Museum
• All Hutt City pools
• Belmont Regional Park (Oakley St)
• The Old Jail in Petone
• Te Maori cultural centre, Waiwhetu
• Percy Scenic Reserve, Korokoro
• Canine Solutions, Seaview
• Hutt City Art Society & Odlin Gallery
• Hikoi for HUHA Dog Walk
• Leisure Active programmes at Treadwell St Hall, Naenae
