We have the opportunity to provide marshals for the big Manawatu Cycle Classic Tour that is taking place on Saturday 16th April.
This is a big 160km bike race that will come through Apiti.
We will be covering from Pohangina Valley East Road corner to Kimbolton and ASSA will be paid $500 for our services.
Please make yourself available to marshal on the day.
We will need helpers for a number of hours so if we have enough people we should be able to job share. Please let me know ASAP if you are willing to help.
Thank you. -

We have until the 30th of June to collect as many cartons as we can get our hands on, so please give them to your child to bring to school, or drop them off at our office. Thanks for your support and thanks for giving us a sporting chance!
