Parents and children around Mosgiel enjoyed a Family Fun Day on Thursday 19 April organised by Housing New Zealand.
Held in nearby Memorial Park at the Mosgiel Football Club, the event included games and pony rides, and a shared lunch. It was initiated by Dunedin Tenancy Manager Stacey who said the families loved having an activity in the school holidays that didn’t cost and was fun for everyone.
"They are already asking when we would be having the next one," Stacey said. The Family Fun Day followed a Christmas in the Park event in December.
Stacey emphasised that Housing new Zealand could not hold these events without the tremendous support from the Mosgiel community. Many local businesses and groups also gave their time, or contributed food or prizes, and are right behind her efforts.
"I have to say a special thank you to our suppliers Dunedin Housing Maintenance Contractors (DHMC), who picked up all the equipment, provided the barbeque and food, purchased toys and even arranged the pony rides. Some of their staff came along and helped as well".
