Nga Puna Wai Update
It is exciting to see the speed of progress made, and all the activity at Nga Puna Wai preparing the facility for use and the season opening competition at Nga Puna Wai on 20 October.
There is still a lot of work to be done between now and then to get our new facility ready. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our team of volunteers who are spending countless hours ensuring everything is ready for our community to use at our new home.
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone down at Nga Puna Wai over the coming season.
Ian Thomas, General Manager, Athletics Canterbury
