The Christmas sausage sizzle was held today at the Woodside Reserve and everyone agreed it was a great success. Jenny Tanner from Back2Back, the community engagement initiative for this local area (funded by Dept of Internal Affairs), was in charge of the sausages and I ‘personned’ the bread and tomato sauce! We had a steady flow of local people including a group of kids who had heard about the event via our letterbox drop. Karena Way from Project Twin Streams dropped by as did John Riddell of the Massey-Birdwood Settlers Association.
We have a great little area in the Woodside Reserve that doesn’t get a lot of use – its tucked away and maybe people don’t know it’s there – but a few more events like this one and hopefully it will be a place that kids come to kick a ball around or families have picnics etc.
A big thanks to Back2Back for the support!
