Update on Birkenhead Pontoon

This is a disappointing situation that the Local Board is pursuing, but it may be a while before a new pontoon is back up and running. The exact location of the new pontoon is also being investigated.

"Upon discovery that the pontoon was potentially unsafe it was removed and taken to a dry dock facility for an assessment of the damage. Results from the assessment have revealed significant damage to the pontoon to the point where the pontoon is not able to be repaired to a standard that it can be returned to Hinemoa Park.
The decision to invest into a replacement pontoon is not a small one and will need to be considered by the Kaipātiki Local Board as part of the upcoming work programme prioritisation.
The immediate impact of this is that there won’t be a pontoon available for users of the park for the remainder of this summer and possibly further into the foreseeable future.
The assessment also revealed that the specific location of the pontoon likely contributed to the damage and therefore as part of any further investigation into the replacement of the pontoon, the location will need to be a factor for consideration."

Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.
