It’s also your opportunity to check out the draft plans for the new Taita Community, Recreation and Sports Centre development.

The $12m development will combine the Walter Nash Stadium, Taita Community Hall, Taita Community Library and Hutt Valley netball courts and will be a hub for community programmes, services and activities for the local area featuring:

• 5 indoor multi-purpose courts
• a new library (relocated from existing)

• a cafe
• up to 11 more courts outside

Entry to the Hoopla is by gold coin with proceeds going towards the fundraising efforts for the new development. Representatives from Hutt City Council and the new Community Facilities Trust will be on hand to answer any queries.

The Hoopla is the kick-off to the annual Kids Fest children’s festival taking place during the October school holidays which features a whole array of events for children aged 5 to 10 years old. More information on Kids Fest is available at www.huttcity.govt.nz/kidsfest

The Taita Family Hoopla is a partnership between Hutt City Council, Taita Community Centre Trust, Netball Hutt Valley and Hutt Valley Basketball.

There really is something for everyone, so bring yourself, friends and family and come enjoy a great day out and make the new development your own.
