Waihi Community Forum (WCF) spokesperson Michael Scahill called in to chat about how the Streets Ahead fund is going to be used in Waihi East.

It has been decided to use the funds this year to create a 'Green Space' and residents are invited to share their ideas and be in for a chance to win some great prizes.

The WCF has a couple of options for siting the space and is after ideas. It's hoped to keep the area natural and provide plenty of places for families to play and enjoy the fresh air.

Low maintenance is a factor to consider along with spaces where different activities could occur.

It would be helpful if an illustration is included so that an idea can be visualised easier.

Waihi East School and Waihi East Kindergarten children are going to be using the Green Space concept as a project and as many ideas as can be dreamed up will be welcomed. Anyone from anywhere is welcome to take part.

Entry forms are available from Waihi East School, Waihi Free Kindergarten, Waihi Library, the Waihi Resource Centre and from the Waihi Community Forum website www.waihicommunityforum.co.nz
