On July 28 Focus Paihia was named the SUPREME WINNER at the Trustpower Far North Community Awards for the Horotutu – Our Place project.
Over 130 people gathered at Te Ahu in Kaitaia for the Trustpower Far North Community Awards which were presented by Mayor John Carter and Trustpower Community Relations Manager Graeme Purches. For winning the Supreme Award, Focus Paihia received a framed certificate, a trophy and $1,500 prize money.
Focus Paihia now has the opportunity to represent the region at the 2014 Trustpower National Community Awards, which are being held in Wellington in March 2015.
This is wonderful recognition for our town and all the hard work (over 250 volunteers, over 9000 volunteer hours!) that was put in to creating this wonderful public space.
