YELLOW PAGES Staff Lend A Helping Hand

YThe Paihia viewpoint track in the Opua Forest will get a major makeover thanks to the help of approximately 120 YELLOW PAGES staff.

The team of volunteers will spend January 23 working on a 1.5km section of track overlooking Paihia in a joint project with the Department of Conservation.

Resurfacing the track with metal and bark, improvements to the water table and construction of benches and barriers are just some of the tasks to be undertaken by the team on the day.

YELLOW PAGES General Manager Roger Shipp says the project promises to be a great success for all involved.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for us to work on a project which benefits the community and at the same time builds team spirit among our staff. I’m sure everyone involved will get a great sense of satisfaction from taking part.”

Conservation officer Katrina Upperton who works from the Department of Conservation’s Kerikeri Area Office says the work planned will significantly improve the track and facilities in the area.

“The track provides access to spectacular views over the Bay of Islands and is popular with locals and tourists alike. The work being done by the YELLOW PAGES team will make the track much easier to negotiate which means more people will be able to enjoy the area.”

The project is one of four being undertaken by YELLOW PAGES staff around the country during January. The company is also working with DOC on projects in Hanmer Springs, Taupo and at the Mt Bruce National Wildlife Centre in Wairarapa.

YELLOW PAGES publishes The Telephone Book, YELLOW PAGES and Local Directories. The company also publishes the on-line directory services, the Internet YELLOW PAGES and the Internet WHITE PAGES.
