Big Splash returns to add shine to Naenae shops

Big Splash returns to add shine to Naenae shops

The Naenae shopping centre is preparing for the second Big Splash Naenae Paintathon on Saturday 7 November when locals will pick up their brushes to add more shine to the Cambridge Terrace side of the Naenae shopping centre.

Local personality Billy Graham says last year’s Big Splash was an incredible success and the atmosphere was fantastic. “Everyone was buzzing for days afterwards and the shopping centre looks great.”

Hutt City Council’s retail coordinator Joanna van Walraven has coordinated this year’s effort and is encouraged by the amount of support shown already.

“Everyone is really keen to pitch in and see the shopping centre come alive for everyone to enjoy.”

Painting will begin at 8am and volunteers are asked to wear old clothes and bring a hat, sunscreen and a water bottle.

Resene has generously supplied paint and Brian Ross will supply painting equipment. Food and drink aplenty will keep volunteers humming.

“We're asking anyone who's keen to register by Wednesday 4 November so we can make sure we’ve got enough gear for everyone.”

If you want to be involved on the day and for further information contact
