Last month local women enjoyed primping, preening and celebrating being female at an event that embodied community and team spirit.
The Girls Indulgency Night was great fun, but what’s even better is that it’s generated un-dreamed of and unexpected positive spinoffs.
The fundraiser, organised by Leigh Knightbridge with help from many others, earned about $2700 for Maungaturoto Primary School. About 50 people had trade stalls and provided massages, makeovers, manicures and more. Participants came from far and wide - Elite Beauty School in Whangarei had eight people there. The evening attracted 170 women.
And while the intention was to get money to buy equipment for the school sandpit, people are en- joying benefits they certainly didn’t expect.
For example, one woman had a brief reflexology session. She’s since gone to Mangawhai for the full deal, is raving about the treatment and has spread the word. I already know that at least one other person has booked in to get their health issues sorted. It’s likely others also got positive and ongoing benefits from the evening.
Leigh says “lots of people were fantastic”, espe-cially Debbie Thornton and Joy Cullen. Her chil-dren - Brooke and Amanda - were also stars along with husband Grant who provided staff and a truck and a team of spunky waiters.
When they got involved these people thought they were just organising a fun evening and rais-ing money.
But, at the end of the day, they’ve given people much more which means that, they too, end up getting more out of the event than they ex-pected.
So reach out, get involved, share and participate - unexpected bonuses await.

PS: A new business that learned about the Life-style Field Day from a chatty local has secured new business. Different event, similar result. The benefits keep rolling in.

Real Town Maungaturoto
Real Town Maungaturoto has been successful in obtaining a grant from ASB Trust for new equipment for the playground. Council has already set aside funds for land-scaping the area. The use of these funds will enable the play-ground to be brought up to today's safety stan-dards giving the town a very attractive area for residents and travellers, enticing them to stop in Maungaturoto. Once the first draft of the concept plan is avail-able we will be consulting with various inter-ested groups to enable input from all different sectors. Further down the track when the weather dries up and we begin to put things to-gether we will be looking for volunteers to help as this will make our funding go further. Watch this space for updates.
Anne Squires-Tantrum
On behalf of the Maungaturoto Business Asso-ciation and Real Town Maungaturoto, I would like to thank
Kauri Park Nurseries
for their very generous donation to the town, of plants to replant our tubs and the gardens. What a difference it has made to our Street. The tubs are once again tidy and the gardens are looking great with the lovely flaxes and grasses. Their expertise in showing us where to place the plants was also greatly appreciated.
