This Friday, 6 December, Waikato District Council is closing their doors and taking part in a Waikato-wide working bee.

It’s been a busy year in the Waikato and staff are celebrating by taking the opportunity to give back, they say.

Council’s 400 staff will be involved in the biggest working bee the district has seen.

Activities include plant releasing and weeding at Lake Rotokauri, Lake Kainui and Lake Puketirini, lending a hand at Huntly St John, beautifying a number of local cemeteries by weeding and picking and rubbish, cleaning a number of our halls and gardening, cleaning windows and visiting residents at Huntly’s Kimihia Rest Home.

Council’s Chief Executive Gavin Ion says that just like everyone else, Council staff work hard all year and the team is looking forward to finishing the year on a high by doing their bit in their communities.

“By spending time in our communities, our people get the opportunity to experience what makes the Waikato district so special. From picking up rubbish to painting and gardening, our people will be doing it all. If you see them out and about, I’d encourage you to give them a toot.”

The Waikato-wide working bee on Friday 6 December means that the offices and libraries will be closed all day. Phones will remain open so customers can continue to phone on 0800 492 452. Normal office hours will resume on Monday 9 December.
