It was expected to feature more than 50 free or cheap events throughout the region's parks and forests over summer. Something for everyone -- that's the Great Outdoors 2013's aim -- and this year it's packed full with walk- ing, tramping, cycling, fishing, off- road driving, gliding and even model airplane flying,'' council committee chairman Nigel Wilson says. So whether you're young, old, fit, or not-so-fit, check out the pro- gramme -- you'll be amazed at the impressive array of activities on offer.'' The programme's centrepiece is the opening of Wainuiomata's his- toric Lower Dam to the public. Located in the Wainuiomata Rec- reation Area, the site has been closed for more than 60 years but on March 16 will be opened. Baring Head/Orura-Pouanui and Whitireia Park -- both recent addi- tions to the regional council's park network -- are also showcased. The Great Outdoors 2013 includes a repeat of last year's first-ever Hikoi Ki Whitireia -- Whitireia History Walk, when Ngati Toa rangatira and the regional council shared the area's rich history with over 80 peo- ple. Visit www.gw.govt.nz/summer events for the full programme and booking information. A brochure will be available from libraries soon. Pride in new home Happy home: Bawi Tin Thang Sui Pum, wife Dawt Kyi Aye, their three children and family friend Mary Gemmill in their newly-built Habitat for Humanity home. Photo: SUPPLIED The completion of the latest Habitat for Humanity home in Porirua was celebrated last month in appalling weather. Bawi Tin Thang Sui Pum, wife Dawt Kyi Aye and their three children moved into the home in Ascot Park after it was trucked to the site a few weeks before the November 17 dedi- cation. Construction began out- side Bunnings Warehouse in June, with the family and an army of volunteers contribu- ting many hours on the project. Bawi Tin Thang was a frequent, smiling face'' during the building of his home, Habi- tat's resource development man- ager Tina Francis said, putting in far more than the 450 hours of work he was required to do. Bad weather did not dampen the spirits of all those who attended the ribbon-cutting cer- emony. The celebration [on Novem- ber 17] was given an inter- national flavour by a team of 11 Habitat Global Village volun- teers from the US and Canada, who helped put the finishing touches to the house. The family is overjoyed at the prospect of being in their new home for Christmas.'' Work continues on another Habitat house nearby, which is expected to be finished in March. Volunteers are welcome to lend a hand. Contact the Habitat office on 238 4251.
