Plea for Woodfest and Mountain Race

Date published: June 24, 2014 at 9:21 am | Comments

An urgent plea from Kawerau District Council staff to save this year’s Woodfest and Mountain Race.

With the Lion Foundation indicating it won’t have any money for the town following the closure of the Kawerau Hotel, the council believes there could be a scramble for funding for the two events, as well as the Hidden trails venture.

Staff are urging the council to apply immediately to another provider for 45 thousand dollars jointly for the Mountain Race and Woodfest.

A decision’s expected at today’s council meeting.
