Who said Guide Dogs can't bowl?

Cliff from Paraparaumu Beach

The Kapakapanui Lions & Raumati Bowling Clubs combined to host another successful triples bowls tournament in support of Blind & Low Vision Kapiti (formerly Blind Foundation). 48 bowlers from beginners to experienced and including blind and low vision players enjoyed a beautiful day in the sun. Morning tea, a BBQ lunch and afternoon tea kept everyone refreshed while the raffle prizes and first, second and third prizes for the players kept everyone entertained. The three guide dogs in attendance bowled everyone over with their charm.
Ron Wezenbeek from Lions & John McBeth, Bowling Club President presented the cheque to Kaye Kay-Smith from Blind Low Vision who said the $2,000 raised would be used to purchase new sets of brightly coloured indoor bowls. She also said that they have indoor bowls games at 1pm on the second and fourth Mondays of the month at 6 Tongariro St and new participants are welcome.
Thanks must go to the sponsors Pzazz Building, Specsavers, New World, Fix It Fitzy, Liam Martin of Tall Poppy, 0800 Mr Chipper, Nepal New Zealand Connection, Freedom Companion Driving, Howard & Co & Warehouse Stationery.

Roger Matthews, Lions Club President said there would be another tournament next year as it will be an annual event.

That Trailer Guy Post Lockdown pic-ups and deliveries

Owner/Operator from That Trailer Guy

Hi, fellow Kapiti community,

Hope you are all safe in your own bubbles and being stuck at home is not as bad as most of us first thought.

Throughout this lockdown you have probably had more time to spend with the family that our normal busy lives wouldn’t allow as much, and also time to do that list of chores and jobs around the house such as gardening, clearing out the garage and sorting out the old rubbish you never got the time to sort through.

Once the lockdown is lifted and we will go back to or busy lives which will be extra busy with trying to catch up on the back log throughout the lockdown, so if you have been busy in the garden or sorting out your old rubbish then call That Trailer Guy on 027-8724537 or e-mail info@thattrailerguy.co.nz to book a time/day slot to come and pick your greenwaste and rubbish up and take to the tip, also picking up the large on-line purchases, whilst you catch up with your work life once we are back to normal.

Bookings are now being taken on a first come first served basis, once we allowed to commence.

Be good and Stay Safe
